Waregem vs Anderlecht by Meese
Waregem made a really great success in the previous official game played now almost two weeks ago, as the team managed to win the Cup finals game against Oostende in a really difficult, but also very interesting game as well, since they won the game after penalty kicks and 2:2 score in the regular time, with both rivals scoring each more in the overtime.
As for the domestic league, they come from a 1:3 victory away from home against Eupen week earlier, as the side secured the third position in the league with such outcome and are now entering the play-off stage having just four points less than leaders from Anderlecht and three less than Champions League placed Club Brugge. It means that the team needs to get a victory here in order to stay in the title fight. Home team won't be able to count at first choice goalkeeper Bossut (18/0) who is injured, same as defender De fauw (24/3).
Anderlecht, on the other side, manage to secure their qualification into the quarter-finals of Europa League, as the side won narrowly 1:0 at home against Cypriot side APOEL two weeks ago, earning their progress with a 2:0 victory on aggregate result. They will be playing against Manchester United in the quarter-finals stage.
The side finished regular part of Jupiler League with a 3:0 victory in front of own fans against Waasland-Beveren, dominating the game a lot from the first minute and scoring all three goals inside the first halftime (Bruno, Teodorczyk and Mbodji). The side remained first at the table with now just a point more than second placed Club Brugge and surely also remain in a must win situation. Guests miss midfielder Najar (9/0).
I expect both sides to come up with quite offensive tactics for this one. They both aim to win and anything but a victory would complicate their future a lot. Recent matches are speaking in favor of goals, while both of the sides anyway have much better attack than what their defensive lineups are reliable.
