In the first match of 18th round in Jupiler League, Westerlo take on Waasland-Beveren.
Westerlo stand at the 10th position with 21 points, while their opponent Waasland-Beveren have 4 points less.
Home team is in a terrible form. They have managed to win only once in their last 8 matches in League. Westerlo have very solid attack (scored 27 goals in 17 matches), but their main problem is defence.
They have the worst defence in Jupiler League, conceded 35 goals (average two goals per match).
For this match they will be without two central defenders: Godeau (15/0 d) and Maertens (17/0 d), so I expect that their defence could be more shaky. MacDonald (7/1 f) and Sno (2/0 m) are also out.
Waasland-Beveren stand at the 13th position. They are near relegation zone and have to collect points in order to move up in the safer zone.
The visitors are playing very solid at home, but their away performance is terrible. They have managed to win only once away from this season (1-1-7), scored 10 goals and conceded 20 goals.
Waasland-Beveren conceded at least one goal in all their away matches this season.
Bojovic (7/1 d), Maric (11/1 m),Oumarou (4/0 f) and Sawaneh (17/1 f) are all out for this match.
Both teams have problems in defence and both team play very open football, so I expect that we can see at least three goals in this match.
Westerlo vs Waasland-Beveren Betting Tip: over 2.5 goals @ 1.95 (Bet365)
