There aren’t many personnel worries, with just a single fitness concern for the Genk manager Bernd Storck to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust set of players. Vic Chambaere (Back Injury) will miss out.

Thanks to a completely injury-free group ready to go, the Charleroi boss Edward Still doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this game.
We feel that in this game, Charleroi should have enough to put one past this KRC Genk side, but it realistically won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We think that it’s going to be a narrow 2-1 winning score for KRC Genk by the conclusion of the game. Hopefully this is a good one.
