Gent is in good form in this season, so far they suffered only three defeats, two in Champions league group stage and one in league against Charleroi at home 1:3. They will now host Waregem in 18th round of Belgium Jupiler league. Gent is doing fine job in defending their title in Belgium, currently are at 1st position with two points more than second Club Brugge. They are also having a good chances to achieve great success and reach Champions league knockout stage, they won direct placement into Champions league group stage after winning the title in their league in previous season and now after five rounds are at second position at the table with one point more than third Valencia, but the only problem is that they are playing against first placed Zenit, who had a perfect score and five victories in all five matches, so Gent must try to win here at all costs and make historical success to stay in Europe for the next spring. Gent is now on good run of four consecutive victories and for sure will now go for a victory at home in order to retain their leading position and continue with great results in this campaign.
Waregem on the other side is currently at 5th position at the table, they didn't impressed with their performances so far but now must try to end that series of five matches without victory, in last three matches they suffered three consecutive defeats, most recently they were defeated in 1/8 finals of the Cup by Gent 1:0. In last five duels against Gent they celebrated two times, suffered two defeats and got one draw. They must try to consolidate their squad and improve their form to end that series of bad results, it won't be easy at all now against very strong Gent. Waregem is playing great offensive football, in 17 games they scored 31 goal but they must improve their defense since they conceded almost equal number of goals 30. Waregem also must try to improve their performances on the road, since in nine matches away from home suffered five defeats, celebrated only three times and got one draw. They played match in Cup against Gent only three days ago and suffered narrow defeat but for sure will be very hard to set up different result here. Waregem ended previous season at 12th position and they now must try to find their form to keep their position which leads them in play offs for title.
Gent is in great form, they are doing fine job in Champions league and only one obstacle left between them and knockout stage, Russian Champion Zenit, in Belgium are also on good path to defend a title and for sure are favorites in this match, while Waregem is in bad shape they suffered three consecutive defeats in last three matches, most recently three days ago against Gent and I expect that Gent will achieve routine victory here in front of their fans.
