Our football match prediction:
Zulte-Waregem and Vitesse, the two teams who have been struggling in the group stages of the Europa League this term, face each other at Regenboogstadion on Thursday evening. Both teams are desperate to pick up all three points from Thursday’s football match and it remains to be seen who will have a reason for celebration. Zulte-Waregem have already conceded seven goals in the process and seeing that they were beaten 5-1 by Nice in their first home game in Group K, we are not tempted to put our money on the Belgian outfit. The Eredivisie club aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Nice and Lazio as well and, taking everything into account, a high-scoring affair appears on the horizon. Both teams are likely to go for a win in the Regenboogstadion clash and we predict that both Zulte-Waregem and Vitesse will find the net in their third group game.
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.
Highlighted Team (Vitesse):
Nicknamed Vitas, the proud of Gelderland, Vitesse are a Dutch football club based in Arnhem. Vitesse compete in the Dutch Eredivisie and they have yet to win the national championship. However, they finished as runners-up in the Dutch elite division on five occasions (1897–98, 1902–03, 1912–13, 1913–14, 1914–15), while clinching third place in the standings in the 1997/1998 season. Vitesse did remarkably well to win the 2016/2017 Dutch Cup title, with the team beating AZ Alkmaar in the final at De Kuip in Rotterdam. As a result, the Vitas booked their place in the Europa League group stages where they face the likes of Lazio, Nice and Zulte-Waregem. Vitesse are well known for their yellow jerseys with black stripes, while the club’s away colour is black. GelreDome is the home ground of the Dutch team and the capacity of the venue is 21.248. It has to be noted that famous Spanish footballer Albert Ferrer was in charge of the club in the 2010/2011 season.
