Zulte Waregem vs Royal Excel Mouscron Prediction

Waregem suffered a 4-0 loss on the road the last match-day, against Charleroi. The loss have now put a great deal of pressure on them to make amends in this next home game. Meanwhile, Mouscron registered a 3-1 win at home against Oostende. It was their first win after four losses in a row.

However, fact remains that Mouscron had the home advantage, and that they had locked horns with a team from the bottom-most tier of the table. This Sunday though, they are on the road, and this change in setting will make a whole lot of difference. 

At present, the team is on a three-game losing run away from home, and have recorded a total of just three wins so far on the road this season. One of these wins had come in the Belgian Cup, against a team from the lower division. 

Moreover, despite current struggles, Waregem have won six of their past eight home fixtures, and they have lost a total of just four times at home since August. It also deserves to be mentioned that two of these defeats had come against the toppers of the table, Club Brugge, and another had come against Genk (from the top-tier as well).

Furthermore, Waregem recorded 7 of the last 9 h2h wins, scored twice or more in 9 of the past 13 encounters, have scored a total of 11 goals in the last 4 h2h games at this stadium, and finally have maintained a 100% unbeaten h2h record here this past decade. Taking all these information into account, count on Waregem to deliver a convincing win this game-week.
