Team News: Genk
Genk boss John van den Brom does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game owing to a fully injury-free group available to select from.
Team News: Club Brugge
Brugge boss Philippe Clement has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Federico Ricca (Achilles tendon problems) and Youssouph Badji (Back Injury) can’t be considered.
We’re thinking that Genk will need to apply a lot of pressure to get anything against this Club Brugge outfit who we think will get the vital goal that wins it.
We therefore fancy a narrow 0-1 winning margin for Club Brugge at full-time.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
