Genk will be the visitors at Olympisch Stadion on Monday for the First Division A meeting with home side Beerschot.
Our full set of predictions, statistics and match poll for Beerschot v Genk can be seen below (plus the best game odds).
Beerschot will be looking for an improved result here after a 0-3 First Division A defeat in their last game at the hands of Standard Liège.
Felipe Avenatti (32'), Maxime Lestienne (76') and Obbi Oularé (83') scored for Standard Liège.
Fixtures with Beerschot have usually been engaging ones recently with a lot of goalmouth action expected. Over their past 6 clashes alone, a grand total of 23 goals have been recorded for both teams combined (at an average of 3.83 goals per game) with 14 of these accredited to Beerschot.
Following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of Club Brugge in First Division A competition, Genk and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The only scorer from KRC Genk was Théo Bongonda (61'). Hans Vanaken (22') and Youssouph Badji (83') scored for Club Brugge.
The numbers tell their own story, and Genk have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 8 goals in total. At the back, Blauw-Wit can certainly do much better. Let’s see if that trend will be sustained into this next match.
Heading into this fixture, KRC Genk haven't been defeated in their previous 5 away league matches.
Team News: Beerschot
Beerschot boss Hernán Losada will be grateful to have no fitness concerns to speak of before this match owing to a fully injury-free group available to choose from.
It’s our opinion that Beerschot may well employ a 3-5-2 formation this time with Mike Vanhamel, Denis Prychynenko, Frederic Frans, Pierre Bourdin, Yan Vorogovskiy, Ryan Sanusi, Raphael Holzhauser, Tom Pietermaat, Joren Dom, Tarik Tissoudali and Marius Noubissi.
Team News: Genk
Genk boss Hannes Wolf has to currently contend with reduced team options. Bryan Heynen (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Eboue Kouassi (Malaria), Edon Zhegrova (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury) and Rubin Seigers (Medial Collateral Ligament Knee Injury) will miss out on this game.
We’re of the thinking that Blauw-Wit seem likely to utilise a 4-2-3-1 formation, starting the game with Danny Vukovic, Joakim Maehle, Carlos Cuesta, Jhon Lucumí, Jere Uronen, Daniel Muñoz, Kouassi Eboue, Junya Ito, Theo Bongonda, Mats Möller Daehli and Cyriel Dessers.
We feel that over the course of the game, Beerschot could find themselves struggling to put one past this Genk outfit who we reckon should just have the edge.
That’s why we have predicted a narrow 0-1 win for Genk after 90 minutes.
Hoping for a good game.
