Genk vs Anderlecht
Belgium – Playoff Championship
Date: Saturday, 30th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Luminus Arena (Genk).
Genk blew away their opposition during the regular season and looks all set to carry on with that momentum in this post-season games. They excelled both in the offensive and defensive fronts, and posted a magnificent goal difference of +32, along with Brugge. The next best return is just +15. During the season, they lost just three games in total.
Anderlecht would really be low in confidence for this game. They were terrible on the road in the last few months, and at one point of time, they were on a seven-game winless streak, with six of them being losses. Towards the end, they had the fortune to take on some weaker teams, and if not for that, their whole 2018-19 would have been a disaster as far as road games were concerned.

Genk vs Anderlecht Prediction
Genk is by far, and by a distance the best team in the country. More than that, they are one of the best teams at home. Anderlecht, meanwhile, is not up to the mark on the road. They were winless in 11 of their last 16 away fixtures and lost ten of them as well. Disregarding some extremely weak teams that Anderlecht took on away from home, they have been really disappointing.
The team may have pulled off some good performances at home, but that paints a wrong picture about their overall form, especially of their away match-ups.
Genk lost just thrice in their last 23 attempts at home and found the back of the net in 22 of their last 23 home fixtures. The only time they failed to score at home in the last seven months was against Antwerp.
Genk is surely targeting a spot in the Champions League, and count on them to take advantage of the incredible form they are in. Anderlecht will find it extremely hard to take a shot at goal after overcoming the in-form defense of Genk.
