Zulte Waregem vs Club Brugge by Gilles

Zulte-Waregem hosts Club Brugge at Regenboogstadion, Waregem.


Club Brugge became champions of Belgium, coach Preud'homme told explicit he will make some changes in the team at away game against Zulte-Waregem to look at performances near end of season and to give some players chances to play some minutes. (some keyplayers might have little troubles too and Preud'homme is not going to risk injuries) This weekend, at Jan Breydel Stadium, the 'champion' team can be expected again to celebrate the title in the last match this season at home. (double chance bet on Zulte-Waregem or Draw (+0.5AH) might be a good option to consider here, but I will wait till starters are announced.)


Zulte-Waregem lost 5-0 at Brugge in the Play-offs, Club Brugge did lose the two previous away games and was very eager to show critics wrong. Zulte-Waregem coach Dury had some troubles at the back, midfielder Lepoint was together with Mendy in central defense to replace Baudry, Diallo and Sami who were all not available at that time. Mendy played a horrible game at Brugge (causing 2 penalties). Lepoint is quiet important at the midfield for Zulte-Waregem. With the returning of Baudry, Diallo and Sami, Lepoint can be expected again at the midfield. Zulte-Waregem lost during the regular competition at Brugge, 3-0. Early in the season, a searching Club Brugge lost 2-0 at Waregem.


Club comes from a 4-0 win at home over a poor Anderlecht. Zulte-Waregem comes from a 4-2 victory at home over a battered Gent (captain Kums got injuried during the game).


I think Mbaye Leye has good chances to score during this game. Mbaye Leye is captain and the main striker for Zulte-Waregem. Leye scored in last 7 home matches, during the play-offs he score in 6 of 8 games. During the play-offs 7 of 11 goals for Zulte-Waregem came from Leye. Leye takes also the penalties for Zulte-Waregem. Mbaye Leye might also try to become topscorer in Belgian Pro League. Leye is with 20 goals 2nd in topscorer competition in Belgian Pro League. Leye will play in 2 more games this season. The first in competition, Perbet with 21 goals, is only sure of 1 game at Kortrijk. (if Charleroi qualify over Kortrijk, Perbet will have 2 more games to play). Leye did receive some recognition this week for his good performances. Last weekend, after the match against Gent, Leye received also the award for best player of Zulte-Waregem this season. On Monday, Leye signed 2 more years for Zulte-Waregem.


I think Zulte-Waregem striker Mbaye Leye will score against a shuffled Club Brugge team, Leye and the 'usual' Zulte-Waregem team (Lepoint at midfield) will try to answer at home after humiliating 5-0 defeat at Brugge, Leye starts with a confidence boost and he might try to become topscorer in Belgian Pro League .

Hey Gillles, any news on lineups?

Engels, club Brugges best central defender is out, with also refaelov and claudemir (attacking players), will send later line ups
05/19/2016 - 20:43
Brugge: Bruzzese, De fauw, Denswil, Bolingoli, Mechele, Vanaken, Simons, Coopman, Pereira, Vossen, Gedoz
2nd goalkeeper and Defauw both ex-Zulte-Wargem. only Simons (captain, the 6, defending midfielder), Denswil (central defense) and Vanaken (the 10) are from first 'champion' team last week, I expect coach Preud'homme might bring Wesley Moares Da Silva ( maybe good to take this striker too as goalscorer) as attacking substitute too, he probably will get minutes too, others substitues are all 'champions'
Waregem: Bossut, Dalsgaard, Baudry, Diallo, Verboom, Storm, Lepoint, de Ridder, Mei

...Meité, Kaya, Leye
Waregem with almost same team as against Gent, Storm is hired from Brugge and starts instead of Cordaro, expect an exhibition-like game, both teams start with the other teams (ex-)players, before the game the Champions and some Waregem Players will receive guard of honour
I expect Preud'homme will also bring Wesley Moares Da Silva as substitute, he is a strong 19 year old striker (I probably will Live-bet Wesley then as next goalscorer), others on bench are all champions. gl
