Club Brugges vs Genk
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Monday, 2 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Jan Breydelstadion (Brugge).
The first round of the Championship playoff is going to be wrapped up with a clash between Club Brugge and Genk. The hosts want to keep up their good form, while the away side is looking to getting involved in the battle for the Europa League spot.
After splitting the points at the end of the regular season, home side are now six points ahead of their main rivals Anderlecht. They haven’t lost in the last six rounds and during the entire season they’ve fallen to a defeat three times in total. Abdoulay Diaby and the lads have been the most efficient side in the competition with 68 goals scored so far. Club Brugge have been superb at home ground and they have allowed only two points to their rivals. They should continue in the same fashion if they want to keep their advantage intact.
Genk finished the regular season at the 5th spot and they are entering the Championship round with 22 points on their account. They’ve lost only once in the last five matches and Phillipe Clement’s side have been pretty productive, although their defence should have bone better. The visitors are one of the most successful away sides in the competition and they suffered only three defeats when playing away from home. They are three points away from the nearest Europa League spot and they should be looking for a little surprise here.
Club Brugge vs Genk: Head-to-head
Interestingly, the hosts celebrated their latest win over Genk back in 2016. Since then, these two sides have met on four occasions and the visitors have celebrated two times. When these two sides face each other, we are often able to see goals in both nets.
Club Brugge vs Genk: Prediction
Club Brugge are favourites in this one, but they won’t have an easy job. They need to open this stage with a win if they don’t want to get into troubles.
Since both attacking lines are pretty efficient and the tradition of their matches says that we can expect the goals from both sides, we are going to back up that tip.
