Zulte-Waregem vs Vitesse: Preview and Predictions

Zulte-Waregem vs Vitesse
UEFA Europa League
Date: 19th October 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Regenboogstadion (Waregem).

Everything is pretty clear in the Group K after two opening rounds which saw Nice and Lazio claiming quite comprehensive wins over Zulte-Waregem and Vitesse.

The teams from neighbouring countries will thus play for prestige and the third spot in the group this Thursday at Regenboogstadion.


Franck Dury’s side opened the new First Division A campaign in a promising fashion, but their form has seen a major slide since the Europa League loss to Lazio.

Zulte conceded three goals in each of the back-to-back defeats to the likes of Lokeren and Antwerp in the domestic league.


Vitesse have not been much better either, but at least they avoided losses in subsequent Eredivisie draws with Utrecht and Heracles.

The Slovenian forward Tim Matavz should have room to deliver his first Europa League goal past the struggling defense of Waregem’s and he is well worth backing here at the 7/5 odds.

Zulte-Waregem vs Vitesse: Head to head

Interestingly, the duo have never crossed paths before as this Thursday will see their first ever H2H encounter.

Zulte-Waregem vs Vitesse: Prediction

The bookies see the hosts as slight favourites, but we must underline that the value goes out with the visiting side who are 21/10 to pick up points.

We don’t expect tight defensive lines and BTTS option should also easily “come in”. You can can back both teams to score at the odds of 4/5.

Zulte-Warehem vs Vitesse: Bets

The first bet will be Vitesse to win & BTTS at 5.50.

You can also try with Tim Matavz to score anytime for the visitors at the odds of 2.40.
