Zulte-Waregem vs Waasland-Beveren
Belgium First Division
Date: Saturday, 28 July 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Regenboogstadion (Waregem).
Zulte-Waregem have struggled to through their pre-season and we’ve seen just one win in last five outings, as they beat RKC Waalwijk but suffered losses to Lokeren, KV Oostende, and AZ while also holding off Hapoel Haifa to just a 1-1 draw. They now host Waasland-Beveren for their Matchday 1 clash on Saturday looking to start off strong despite a strong challenge expected.
Waregem have been very tough at this ground and base their success on such performances here, which could come worrying for the travelling fans. They’ve netted 23 goals in last five league outings the last term and we’ll now surely see an outfit motivated to keep up such results at Regenboogstadion.
Waasland-Beveren come into the match on the back of a 3-0 win over Mechelen, which saw a two-game winless streak ended, and they’ll now hope to build on such a performance. They’ve finally regained consistency on the road but Yannick Ferrera’s men have known woes away from home and he will have to do a lot to find a cure for such troubles if they’re to do better this term.
