Thorgan Hazard, on loan at Zulte Waregem from Chelsea, insists his side have not yet given up hope of winning this year's Belgian Jupiler Pro League title.

In the Championship Playoff, Hazard's side are outsiders with two games to play, but could still win the title if they win their two remaining games and other results go their way.

Zulte Waregem host leaders Anderlecht, who lie four points clear of Hazard and company, this evening, in what is likely to be the attacking midfielder's last home game for the club.

"Anderlecht will come to win because they are certain to win the title if they win the last two games", Hazard explained to RTBF.


"They won't give us any gifts and we can't give them any gifts either. I think it will be a good game.

"We still believe [in winning the title].

"Taking the six points that are needed to finish first would be good, but we could also finish in fourth place. What would be really nice would be if the four teams [Anderlecht, Club Brugge, Standard Liege, Zulte Waregem] could still dream of the title on the last day of the season.

"That would be really great for everyone. Suspense until the end."
