Zulte-Waregem hosts Oud-Heverlee Leuven in round 25 of the Belgian Jupiler League. The match will be played on Thursday, January 21st at Regenboogstadion (Waregem)
The hosts have gained decent momentum lately. Due to a successful streak, Zulte-Waregem managed to get out of the danger zone and took 9th place. It’s a rather high result for Dury's charges - he is forced to rebuild the game every year since 50% of the roster is constantly leaving. Now Zulte has four wins in a row. In the last round, the team did an excellent job in Beveren and hammered the opponent with a 5-1 score. Even though both main strikers are injured (Chory and Vossen), the role of the helm was played by the experienced Bruno, who scored a double.

Oud-Heverlee Leuven suffered a defeat in Sint-Truiden (1-3), although the course of the match was influenced by the red card picked up by the regular center defender Ngawa. After that, the hosts quickly scored two goals and brought the game to victory. For Heverlee, this defeat was 3rd in the last four matches. Brys's charges dropped from 4th place to the 7th, but their performances as a newcomer should be recognized as successful.
In the first round, Heverlee was able to win 2-1 at home. Both teams always try to act from the attack, often forgetting about the defense. Therefore, they are considered the teams with the most unreliable defense in the top 10 (about 1.7 goals conceded per match). You can't get away from style, as well as from statistics - four of the last five head-to-head matches ended with the exchange of goals scored. So, there is no need to invent anything, but it is worth proceeding from the trend in this pair of opponents.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - yes
