Antwerp vs Zulte Waregem – Predictions, Odds, & Best Betting Tips

Antwerp had to work hard for the win over Drita in the Conference League midweek qualifier. Even though the team had a comfortable 2-0 win over strugglers Mechelen in the opening game of the campaign, it is unlikely to be a barometer. Zulte Waregem had a 2-0 win over FC Seraing in their opening match.

Antwerp victory and over 2.5 goals

Antwerp have largely enjoyed success against Zulte Waregem with the last three home matches against this club producing two wins. At the same time, Zulte Waregem have not allowed Antwerp to run away with the matches, as the winning margin has not been by more than two goals in any of the recent six meetings between the two clubs.

First goal to be scored in the second half

Antwerp and Zulte Waregem were unable to score in the first half of their opening games. The two teams managed a clean sheet which will provide plenty of confidence for the defenders coming into the game. The first half might be a game of chess with Zulte Waregem trying to stop the opposition.

Both teams to score – yes

Zulte Waregem showed enough scoring form but they had to wait until the last 20 minutes to open the scoring against Seraing. Antwerp have the squad strength to rotate players and striker Michael Frey being in good form is big news.
