Zulte Waregem vs Anderlecht by Neuro
Zulte Waregem is coming from a unexpected win over Leuven, not so much when speaking about their quality, but the tempo of the game wasn't that fast and everything was pointing out to a draw on the road, when attacker Naessens scored the only goal in 84th minute and brought unexpectedly three points to visitors.
This was their fourth win in the season and along one draw, the have earned thirteen points so far, making a very good start of the season and holding the fourth position, having the same number of points as giants of Belgium football - Anderlecht. Their previous appearance in front of the own fans didn't go that well as they have unexpectedly lost to Mons 2:4 in an highly open game, just like they prefer to play at home. Hosts will be without their striker Leye who will be out for next six weeks. The attacking duo should be Naessens and Lendric in this clash.
Anderlecht is coming from a goalless draw in the first round of the Champions League group stage earned on the road against AC Milan. With clever defensive minded tactics and great goalkeeping from Proto, they managed to stay undefeated in the toughest game for them this season.
However, the things aren't looking that brilliant in the domestic league as they failed once again to approach the leaders from Brugge, drawing 0:0 away to Mons and 1:1 away to Lierse in previous week. This was their fourth draw since the beginning of the season and their biggest problem - 3-4-0 record which sees them being four points away from their biggest rivals. Guests will be without defensive midfielder Odoi, just as long term injured Matias Suarez.
Guests are superior in comparison to the hosts, but Anderlecht's defense is having a terrible season so far and betting on away win shouldn't be the smartest move. However, goals are expected as the hosts are in a very good form while Anderlecht shouldn't be able to repeat similar defensive performance from what they did in Italy few days ago.
