Oostende is at the 14th spot on the standing with 23 points from 21 games. They won 7 matches in the league while drawing on 2 and losing on 12 other occasions. They have scored 23 in total while conceding a sum of 43 which shows their deteriorating defensive and attacking line.

On Boxing day, De Kustboys lost to Genk by a hefty 0-4 while they won the opening match of the year against Saint Eloois by 4-0 at a Club friendly. They have also been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 9 goals in total.

On the other side, Waregem resides further down below at the 16th position on the table with 23 points. Of the 21 matches played, they won on 6 games while drawing 5 times and losing on 10 other occasions. Their total goals to conceding ratio stands at 31:45 so far in the league.

Essevee has slowly regained momentum after their 4 consecutive losses. They won the the next two league games against KV Mechelen and Saint Liege closing the previous year. SV Zulte Waregem has failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 13 goals while netting in a sum of 7 for themselves.

Coming into this meeting, the visitors have not yet emerged victorious against the hosts when having played them at Elindus Arena since the previous 6 league games.

We therefore expect the hosts to win in Saturday as they have found a slight increase in momentum which can certainly overshadow the struggling form of visitors.
