Zulte Waregem vs St.Truiden Prediction
Zulte Waregem were denied a third successive win in the first division, last week, after Gent scored two unanswered goals past them by the end of the ninety minutes. Nevertheless, the hosts have been at the losing end just four times in their previous ten games, and are currently sitting sixth on the ladder with twenty-eight points in the bag.
On the other hand, St.Truiden admitted defeat in their most recent matchup at home with Club Brugge by a 2-1 scoreline. Despite taking a lead early on in that clash, the visitors failed to keep their guard up, and subsequently let their counterparts muster a stellar comeback.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have just one win to boast of from their past four games, garnering no more than three points from a possible twelve in the process. The away side are yet to ensure consistency in their outings too and have been alternating between wins and defeats in their past four.
Taking into account that they have not come out on top in any of their last seven visits here as well, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Zulte Waregem in this one.
Furthermore, the hosts have been causing all sorts of trouble in the final third, this term, especially on home soil. Seventeen of the twenty-six goals for them so far have come from their clashes at home.
Meanwhile, St Truiden have been adamant in finding the back of the net on the road, and have scored eleven goals up till now as well.
In addition, their last h2h meeting here featured over 2.5 goals on the charts. As such, expect no dearth of goals come Saturday.
