Two big rivals Anderlecht and Genk will lock horns at Lotto Park this Friday, and also open the action for Belgium First Division A Round 16. This year’s edition of this league has been very interesting, as top six teams are separated by a small gap for only six points.

Anderlecht are hoping to win this match against table leaders and get back into the race after collecting just three points from the last four outings.

Genk’s results and form has been phenomenal in the last 30 days, having seven straight victories in this division. Yet, the odds on home and away win are at identical 2.60 rate at the moment.

Anderlecht vs Genk Head-to-head

Anderlecht vs Genk Prediction

Like a big majority of top tier Belgium teams this year, Anderlecht have been very inconsistent. Team has achieved only five victories in 15 appearances, while eight duels ended without winner. The average number of goals scored in Anderlecht’s games so far is exactly 3.00 per duel.

Record at home has been significantly better than on the road. Vincent Kompany’s squad is still undefeated at Lotto Park, having three wins and four draws. Many eyes are pointed at direction of young star Lukas Nmecha who scored six goals so far in this campaign.

Recent form has been far from good though – draws versus Gent, Standard Liege and Zulte, and one loss to Beerschot. Genk’s stats are looking unreal at this point. Team has scored 35 goals, which averages three per duel.

As mentioned above, squad has collected 21 point from last seven appearances. Considering the crisis of home team, we see good value in backing away win here.
