Eupen vs Genk Prediction
Genk is a team on a mission this season. They raced to the top of the table, leaving other teams far behind right in the first half of the season itself. Their away matches have done a lot in helping them dominate the league in such a manner. No team has recorded more points on the road than Genk or outscored them.
Genk has 25 away goals to their name from nine outings. The next best is just 17 by Gent and Bruges. Genk doesn’t play around and get to the point right from the starting whistle itself. As was the case in almost all of the matches this season, as well as in h2h games with Eupen, Genk will open their account in the first half itself.
Despite their admirable performances away from home, they have failed to keep clean sheets on a consistent basis. Especially against Eupen, Genk’s defense gets breached somehow. Their last five h2h games in a row, three of the last four h2h ties at this venue had both sides on the score sheet.
The stat will add one more game to its list this weekend.
