Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Following a goalless draw with Kortrijk, Eupen will be aiming to escape the danger zone when they face Waregem on Matchday 33. The Pandas are now on a seven-game winless run in the Jupiler League, but it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Defender Gary Magnee is back from suspension, whilst both Teddy Alloh and Loic Bessile are out of contention through injuries.
Frederik D’Hollander’s troops, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last five league matches. Since Waregem are not regarded as good travellers, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. Defender Timothy Derijck returns from suspension, while there are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team.
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.
