Our football match prediction:
Zulte-Waregem will be aiming to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Nice when they host Lazio at their Regenboogstadion on Thursday evening. The Essevee failed to book their place in the last 32, but, no doubt, their pride will be at stake when they face the Biancocelesti in their last group match. Lazio have already clinched top position in Group K and there is every chance coach Simone Inzaghi will rest his first-team regulars in Thursday’s football game against the Belgian club. When the two teams met at Stadio Olimpico earlier in the process Lazio recorded a 2-0 win over Zulte-Waregem and we predict the history is going to repeat itself. Ecuador international Felipe Caicedo, who has netted two goals in the Europa League so far this season, is likely to lead the line for the visitors and the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Highlighted Player (Fredrik Jensen):
Fredrik Jensen is a Norwegian footballer who plays for Belgian side Zulte Waregem as a midfielder. Jensen started his senior career at Odd and he made no less than 129 appearances for the Norwegian club (league) from 2012 to 2017. The 185-cm tall player then decided to take a step forward in his career and he joined Zulte Waregem in the summer of 2017. Fredrik Jensen signed a four-year deal with the Belgian outfit and his contract should expire on June 30, 2021. Jensen’s main position is defensive midfield, but he is used as a central midfielder as well. The Zulte Waregem footballer, whose preferred foot is right, has yet to make his debut for Norway at senior level. Fredrik Jensen made his Zulte Waregem debut in a thrilling 5-0 win over Eupen, with the Norwegian midfielder coming as a substitute for Onur Kaya in the dying minutes of the match. Jensen was born in Skien, Norway on May 18, 1993.
