Oostende – Zulte-Waregem, First Division A Prediction
Oostende made a very poor season during the last campaign. They finished in the second half of the regular season table, which is also true for Zulte, and then anchored to the 4th place without any chance of going to the Playoffs for LE or getting relegated. Most likely this season will have the same goal since they did not do anything interesting on the market, but they still have a new coach. Oostende made a good summer, at least in terms of results, and at home they missed to score only four times in their last 25 games. However, they have 5 clean sheets in these fixtures, which means that their games are quite high goal scoring. Oostende have 2 wins and 2 losses, but their two losses are vs. among the strongest teams in the league at the moment, namely Genk and Anderlecht.
Zulte reached the first place in the group, then played a playoff for LE, but lost to Genk. They are very hesitant lately and consistently make all kinds of results. Zulte also concede many goals and have a weak defense. In their last 24 games they have only 4 clean sheets, but have not scored in just 3 of them. They are also not particularly impressive and have 5 points in the league in 4 games.
Such duels in theory we should expect many goals. In the last 10 games between these two teams, there has always been an exchange of goals in both nets, with most of them having a minimum of 3 goals. Very often, a similar kind of games, in which, in theory, it is almost certain that there will be goals, they are boring and become rather with very few goals or goalless. However, we will trust the logic, the statistics, the facts and the football that both teams practice and our prediction will be BTTS of 1.58 as BTTS and over 2.5 goals for 1.85 is also a great option with a higher odd
Ndenbe(CB) is the only main missing
Madu is the only one missing for Zulte, but he hasn’t got any games till now
