Zulte Waregem v Kortrijk – Jupiler League
17 Sep 2016, Regenboogstadion, 18:30 GMT +0
Once again, we have got a match with Zulte on our hands. In the upcoming match they will face off against Kortrijk.
Zulte is coming from a huge win over Mouscron, where they “destroyed the guests with 5 goals. Zulte has shown great quality in that match and only proves why I Insist on following the team from Waregem. Zulte’s record is currently 4W-1D-1L and with those great performances, Zulte got to sit on the top of the league, with 1 point to spare ahead of Anderlecht.
In the upcoming match, Kortrijk will travel to Waregem, to face off against Zulte. Kortrijk should expect a difficult match ahead of the, as Zulte is hard to beat on the home pitch. Looking at previous H2H, it does not give us a clear picture, as Zulte has made some great transfers this season, which improved their squad, so it’s difficult to compare last year’s Zulte to this year. Nevertheless, Zulte mustn’t underestimate their opponents, as they have had a great stat of the season. 3W-2D-1L is Kortrijk’s record, with all 3 of the wins coming from last 3 matches. SO it’s safe to say they are in form and will put up a strong fight against their next opponents.
The thing that bothers me is the home record of Zulte and away record of Kortrijk. Zulte on one hand is strong at home, whereas Kortrijk fail to impress on the road. That could be especially seen if we take a look at the match between Anderlecht and Kortrijk, where the home team won (5:1).
For me Zulte is a better team and with the home pitch advantage they should get another 3 points out of that match. The odds on Zulte are quite generous, so take advantage of it.
Prediction: Zulte Waregem -0.5
Odds: 1.92 SBOBET
