Previous matches between the two had averaged 4.36 goals while BTTS has happened 64% of the time. KRC Genk have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 10 games and have conceded the first goal of the game in their last 4 home games.

We feel an away win happening at Cegeka Arena as the visitors are very good at away fixtures and the home team are only average at their home ground this season.
