Antwerp barely survived relegation last term and will no doubt be aiming for a quick turnaround this time. They have played a couple of pre-season friendlies and will be looking to take on a positive journey in the Belgian league. They finished fourth last term, and Van Bommel, is now expected to make contenders of the Reds.
The hosts come into this on the back of a slender 2-0 win in Kosovo against Drita to win by the same margin on aggregate in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Europa Conference League. Over their prior 6 fixtures, Mark van Bommel’s men have seen rewards for their attempts on goal a total of 7 times.
On the other side, Zulte Waregem had a disappointing form throughout the last season in Jupiler League . Their unimpressive run of form pushed them down to the 16th spot of the table. The side narrowly escaped the relegation zone with a difference of just 4 points.
The visitors come into this encounter following a 2-0 First Division A win in the defeat of Seraing in their last match.
