Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Mechelen will be looking to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Genk when they take on Waregem in the Jupiler League round 16. De Kakkers are eyeing their third consecutive home win, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Defender Jordi Vanierberghe is sidelined with injury, while forward Kerim Mrabti is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Mbaye Leye’s men, on the other hand, suffered yet another dip in form, with the team losing to both Oostende and Standard Liege in the previous two league fixtures. Waregem have been struggling at the back of late, and given Mechelen’s fine form on home soil, we predict that the visitors are going to return to West Flanders empty-handed. Defender Ravy Tsouka is banned for the match, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
