Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Waasland-Beveren and Oostende face each other at Freethiel Stadion in the closing match of day 9. Waasland-Beveren aim to build on a Belgian Cup win over Petegem, but Oostende are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. Even though the hosts showed character in a 1-1 draw with Genk before the international break, we do not believe that home win should be considered as they have been struggling at the back in the first half of the season.
Oostende, on the other hand, have been in a splendid form of late. The visitors proved their worth in a 3-0 win over Mouscron, and seeing that talented Senegal forward Makhtar Gueye returns from suspension, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Alexander Blessin’s charges. In their last encounter in the Jupiler League Waasland-Beveren emerged triumphant, meaning that Oostende are hungry for revenge.
