Nice vs Zulte Waregem: The French men of Nice host the Belgians of Waregem this Thursday on a Europa League match…
Despite being having a campaign way below last season’s campaign, when they actually fought for the French Ligue 1 title, Nice got off to a good start in the Europa League.
The team won its first two matches and got 6 points in the first two matches, that suggested that they would be on their way to advance.
But then came the matches against Lazio. And Nice lost both of them against the Italians, so they are starting to see their qualification at risk, especially due to the approach of Waregem, who got their two points against Vitesse.
The team still occupies the 2nd position of the group with 6 points, but now they only have a 2-point advantage over the 3rd place.
They got 2 wins and 2 losses in the competition, having a goal record of 9 goals scored and 5 goals conceded.

Waregem is finally having a performance inversely proportional to Nice’s.
The team has started off with losses against Nice and Lazio on the Europa League and seemed virtually eliminated.
But then came the matches against Vitesse, and the Belgians took advantage and conquered 4 points against the Dutch.
Those were important points that gave them hopes of an historical qualification in the Europa League.
Nice vs Zulte Waregem – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The big question here is the interest and Nice’s form that isn’t great. But I’ll remind you that playing away from home on the first round of this Europa League, Nice slaughtered this same Waregem 5-1.
I don’t think that this will be linear, but coming off 2 losses and with their position at risk, those seem good enough reasons for Nice to get interested and win this match.
