We said: Westerlo 1-1 Mechelen

Considering Westerlo's struggles in recent months, we are not expecting a sensational performance from the hosts, but the two-week break would have helped freshen their troops up for Saturday's clash. Mechelen's campaign is beginning to peter out significantly, but we feel that De Kakkers will be good enough for a share of the spoils at Het Kuipje. Read more.
