Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Charleroi and Waregem square off against each other at Stade du Pays de Charleroi in the Ligue 1 round 32. The Black and Whites aim to build on back-to-back wins over Antwerp and Westerlo, and they are seen as favourites to beat Waregem as well. Since both Damien Marcq and Ken Nkuba are back from suspension, we believe that home win should be considered. Defender Mehdi Boukamir remains on the sidelines with injury.
The visitors, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back of late. Considering that Frederik D’Hollander’s troops conceded 14 goals in total in the last four league matches, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. Timothy Derijck is banned for the match, while both Alessandro Ciranni and Moudou Tambedou are major doubts. It has to be noted that earlier this season Charleroi defeated Waregem 3-1.
Highlighted Team (Waregem):
Over the years Zulte Waregem have established themselves as a top-table side in Belgian Super League. The Essevee are a product of a partnership between Zulte and Waregem and it has to be noted that Zulte Sportief were founded back in 1950.
Zulte Waregem impressed in the 2012/2013 Belgian Super League campaign, with the team finishing the process in second place in the standings, only four points behind champions Anderlecht. As a result, the Essevee booked their place in the Europa League group stages, but despite recording victories over the likes of Maribor and Wigan Athletic in Group D the Belgian side eventually failed to advance to the knockout stages of the European competition.
Zulte Waregem, who welcome their rivals at Regenboogstadion, will play in the group stages of the Europa League in the 2017/2018 season. Zulte Waregem, who won the Belgian Cup in the 2016/2017 season, will face the likes of Nice, Lazio and Vitesse in Group K.
