Belgian Pro League - Zulte-Waregem vs Oud Heverlee Preview

Analysis:

The First Division A tie at Elindus Arena on Wednesday will see hosts SV Zulte Waregem play Oud-Heverlee Leuven.

Zulte-Waregem
SV Zulte Waregem will be hoping for a better result following the 3-1 First Division A loss in their previous game against Cercle Brugge. Fixtures with SV Zulte Waregem have proved to be absorbing encounters of late with plenty of scoring anticipated. Over their past six games, the sum total of 20 goals have gone in for both teams combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 7 of these being chalked up by SV Zulte Waregem.


Oud Heverlee
After a loss in their previous game against Beerschot in First Division A competition, Oud-Heverlee Leuven and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one. Oud-Heverlee Leuven have been a threat going forward in their most recent fixtures, scoring 9 times in their last 6 matches. Having said that, Oud-Heverlee Leuven have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 5 of those same outings. Historical results aside, we will just have to wait and see if such a trend might be sustained here in this game or not.

Verdict:
We believe that Oud-Heverlee Leuven and SV Zulte Waregem could both well score more than once here although it’s hard to see a clear-cut winner. Looks like a high-scoring draw might be possible, as we’re expecting it to be that close. Our tip is therefore for a hard-fought 2-2 score draw by the conclusion of the match.
