Zulte Waregem vs Waasland-Beveren
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Saturday, 22 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Regenboogstadion (Waregem).
Zulte Waregem has lost both their clashes in the league so far. The 3-1 loss on the road against the promoted Beerschot VA in the last game will be the one that is hurting so much for the host.
The host can make a comeback, and having scored in both defeats puts a ray of hope to the side that finished 9th last season.
Waasland could not carry their winning streak from the opening match to the second clash last time out in the league this season. Their victory on the road in the opening match will somehow give them hope, but they were at the 16th position in the table last season.
Also, they will visit after a 1-2 loss at home against St. Liege in the schedule.

Zulte Waregem vs Waasland-Beveren Prediction
Zulte’s most recent h2h encounter with the Leeuwen saw them winning the clash with a massive 5-0 scoreline in February this year.
Besides, the teams have averaged 4.0 goals within the last five h2h clashes held here. Since goals are abundant when these two meet, expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair.
We cannot take lightly the losing streak of the host, and it is also a reminder of their dip in form in the campaign this season.
But Waregem has the capability of making a comeback and facing Waasland will be their best shot at it. That’s why it is safe to say that the match is sizing likely to be a home win.
