Mechelen favourite to win the game

Mechelen is our favourite to win this Pro League clash with Zulte Waregem. Zulte seems to be far from getting it right in what is now shaping up as a troubled season for the visitors. A brief stint of two wins in a row soon ended in back-to-back losses ahead of this clash with Mechelen and we don’t think the visitors can get the three points in this trip, let alone a point. Bet on Mechelen to win the game due to home support despite being an equally out-of-form side.

Mechelen over 1.5 goals

The second Mechelen vs Zulte-Waregem prediction is 2 or more goals for the hosts, Mechelen. They have won their last two home games, scoring two goals in each. This home fixture against the struggling Zulte should not pose any challenge to Mechelen, so bet on the hosts to net twice or more times in this game.

Over 2.5 goals full-time

Over 2.5 goals are also a plausible outcome in this clash. A win for Mechelen and also more than a goal for the hosts are only two possible outcomes in the Pro League game. Also, note that both sides are struggling to defend, so there is a chance for more goals from either team. There were at least 3 or more goals scored in each of the last four encounters between Mechelen and Zulte.

Mechelen vs Zulte-Waregem: Our Fixture Preview

Mechelen

Mechelen will fight to be in the top ten before the World Cup tournament kicks off later in the month. They have the 9th best home run after 8 games. The hosts have 4 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses in 8 home games. They have scored 15 goals, signally the possibility of scoring at least two goals in this clash. However, leaking 13 goals in the 8 home matches also means Mechelen should equally focus on preventing a goal concession, which looks likely.

Zulte-Waregem

Zulte-Waregem is having it rough in the 2022/23 Pro League season. The visitors are the last on the First Division A table and winning this clash with such a worrying form is unlikely. Zulte is the 3rd worst away team after 1 win, 2 draws and 4 losses. They have scored 6 goals and leaked 10 in 7 trips.
