Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Waregem and Gent face each other in a highly-anticipated Jupiler League game at Elindus Arena. Waregem failed to win the previous three league fixtures, but their display in a 1-1 draw with Eupen before the international break was anything but poor. Both Bent Sormo and Joost van Aken are rated doubtful for the hosts, who are eyeing their second home win of the process. Gent, on the other hand, head into the match following a goalless draw with Seraing.
De Buffalo’s aim to move closer to the Europa League berth, but beating Waregem at Elindus Arena is easier said than done. A close match is on the cards, and we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on draw. The good news for the visiting team is that experienced midfielder Sven Kums returns to the starting XI after serving his one-game ban in the goalless draw with Seraing.
Highlighted Player (Saido Berahino):
Saido Berahino was born on 4 August, 1993 in Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi. He began his senior career at West Bromwich Albion at age 17, but in the 2011/2012 he was sent on loan to Northampton Town. After ending his loan spells with Brentford and Peterborough United in 2012, the right-footed attacker returned to the Hawthorns.
Berahino impressed in the 2014/2015 Premier League campaign, with the English striker scoring 14 goals in 38 appearances for the team. At the end of the season he was on the verge of joining Tottenham Hotspur, but he eventually stayed at the Hawthorns.
Berahino has yet to make his England debut, but he scored ten goals in 11 appearances for England U21 team. It is well known that Berahino is a Manchester United fan. In 2015 he founded his own charity foundation which helps disadvantaged people in Great Britain improve the quality of their lives.
Highlighted Team (Gent):
Gent are a Belgian football club that plays their home games at Ghelamco Arena. The venue has been the club’s home ground since 2013 and the capacity of the stadium is 20 000. De Buffalo’s participate in the Belgian Pro League and they clinched their first domestic trophy in the 2014/2015 season.
Gent finished the regular part of the season in second place in the standings, but they eventually climbed to the top position in the table in the play-off. The club won their third Belgian Cup trophy in 2010 and it has to be noted that they defeated Club Brugge in the Belgian Super Cup in 2015. Laurent Depoitre scored the winner for Gent three minutes before the final whistle.
A number of top-class players were part of the team in the past and the likes of Victor Fernandez, Johan Boskamp, Bob Peeters, Trond Sollied and Michel Preud’homme are some of notable footballers who played for Gent in the past.
