Waregem vs Mouscron Prediction & Betting tips
Zulte Waregem and Mouscron contend each other on matchday 3 in group A of Play-off 2. Both teams started the best and the winner already seems to be taking a step towards the final of Play-off 2.
Zulte Waregem puts his outcry against Leuven right with a win against Waasland-Beveren. Francky Dury thoroughly tinkered with his base team, after the team dropped on the opening game day of Play-off 2. With a score of six out of six, Waregem remains on course to fulfill his ambition; play the final of Play-off 2 and so grab the last straw on a European ticket.
Waregem therefore visited Waasland-Beveren on the previous day of play. Both teams played nice football, but we did not get to see many opportunities in the beginning. Theo Bongonda provided an acceleration and the lead. Just before half-time, he also laid the double lead with an assist. Waasland-Beveren went in search of the tying goal in the second half, but the Waaslanders scored very difficult in the last weeks. Only through a penalty kick could it soften.
Trainer Francky Dury was satisfied with the victory against Waasland-Beveren. He had praise for Bongonda. “Bongonda is a talented football player,” says Dury. ‘He is extremely explosive and technically perhaps one of the better players in the Belgian league. You hardly see such footballers. “He comes from an injury and is working on his return. “He had all his moments against this Waasland-Beveren, but in the second half you saw that he was not yet ready physically to finish it.”, The trainer concluded.
Just like in the regular competition, Mouscron now also has a great start in Play-off 2. On the first day of play, they beat Lierse without problems. Against Kortrijk on match day two, it could also distance itself from a competitor for the first place. The Henegouwers are therefore keen on their move to Waregem, currently the biggest competitor.
Last weekend the duel between the two leaders in group A was on the program with Mouscron-Kortrijk. But that was not visible on the field. The Henegouwers went the longest in a sluggish derby. Kortrijk took the lead and Mouscron reacted immediately with faster play and the deserved equalizer. After the break Les Hurlus went on the same momentum and five minutes before the end the decision fell from the dot
Stronghold at Mouscron remains the young mercenary of Liverpool, Taiwo Awoniyi. In these play-offs, he increased his goal balance from six to eight. If later his mate Jonathan Bolingi is back then Mouscron has a young but deadly attack duo. A strong weapon to confirm the strong start now and not to make a free fall.
