Zulte-Waregem are still last in the league. KV Kortrijk and Seraing boast the same number of points but have a better goal difference. At the end of the season, three teams are relegated to the second division. Last weekend they could not gather points against direct rival Ostend. After 6 out of 6 points against KV Kortrijk and RSC Anderlecht, the train seemed to have departed for Essevee, but during the game against Ostend, doubts crept back into the team. At the back, they easily swallow goals. Coach Leye opted for another goalkeeper, but that seems to bring little change. He will try to keep his ex-team Standard as far away from the penalty area as possible.
Standard took the scalp from RSC Anderlecht last week. The game was surrounded by the expected uproar. The visiting fans threw fireworks onto the field and caused the game to be suspended. Standard couldn’t care less. The result will be revised to 5-0. With a win on the Zulte-Waregem pitch, the Liège side would set another winning streak. This would also immediately keep them in sight of the top four. The gap with Union, currently fourth in the standings, is seven points at the time of writing. That gap must not widen if they are to make the first Playoff.
We expect an energetic match with two enthusiastic teams. Zulte Waregem should still be able to put Standard under pressure at home for at least a short period and score a goal. It is not Zulte-Waregem’s style to speculate for a 0-0. Although Standard clearly performs less on the road than at home, it seems to get into the box almost by itself. Strikers Dragus and Zinckernagel will obviously get their chances. They should also be able to break through Zulte-Waregem’s defense. They are favorites because of their form and position in the standings. Given their struggles on the road, scoring both teams is a more safe bet.
