The Pro League league table might not tell the truth so early on, but it's the best truth we have so far. Waasland-Beveren and Anderlecht are placed 17th and 5th respectively.

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.

Waasland-Beveren form and stats

Waasland-Beveren are yet to win a home game, having collected 0 points from their first two Pro League games here at Freethielstadion. It's trouble wherever Waasland-Beveren are playing these days as they have suffered four straight defeats now, regardless of arena. They really need to get back to winning ways. We have seen two home losses in a row now for Waasland-Beveren, who are hoping that the phrase “third time lucky” applies to them.

Waasland-Beveren faced defeat in their previous match, away at Club Brugge (1-4). Heartbreak before that as Waasland-Beveren lost 1-4 at Zulte-Waregem's place.

At Freethielstadion, Waasland-Beveren has the goal stats of 2-5 (for/against) from 2 league fixtures.

Anderlecht form and stats

It's early days yet, but Anderlecht has scored 4 and conceded 4 goals from their travels in the league so far (2 games).
