📏 Form Guide

KRC Genk WWDDLL

Genk will be hoping to bounce back here after the 5-2 First Division A defeat in their last game at the hands of Beerschot.

For KRC Genk, goals were scored by Paul Onuachu (19') and Cyriel Dessers (76'). Raphael Holzhauser (12', 63'), Pierre Bourdin (49'), Yan Vorogovskiy (85') and Marius Noubissi (90') scored for Beerschot.

It has not been often in recent times where KRC Genk have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Blauw-Wit have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 11 goals along the way.

Taking a look at their past results, Genk:

  • have not registered a win against KV Mechelen in their last 2 matches in the league.
  • haven’t won at home in the past 4 league games. Their fans aren't happy.

KV Mechelen DDWLLL 📉

Since tasting defeat last time out to Oostende in First Division A action, KV Mechelen and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.

Jack Hendry (95') scored for Oostende.

The stats don’t lie, and KV Mechelen have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 8 goals in total. In defence, Mechelen can certainly do much better. Let’s find out whether or not that trend can be continued on into this next match.

Going into this encounter, KV Mechelen have not beaten KRC Genk when having played them away from home in the previous 8 matches in the league. A very poor set of away results, indeed.

↔️ Head to head

An examination of their prior head to head meetings going back to 23/01/2016 tells us that Genk have won 2 of them & KV Mechelen 3, with the number of drawn matches standing at 1.

A combined total of 16 goals were scored between them throughout the course of those matches, with 7 for Blauw-Wit and 9 coming from Mechelen. That is an average goals per game value of 2.67.

The previous league match between these sides was First Division A match day 2 on 03/08/2019 when it finished KV Mechelen 3-1 KRC Genk.

The match was refereed by Bram Van Driessche.

🧠 Prediction

Genk will, in all likelihood, get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.

In contrast, KV Mechelen will be up against it getting goals - but, we do see them getting the chances to score, too.

We reckon that it will be a pretty comfortable 3-1 winning score for Genk when all’s said and done.
