Genk will be the odds on favourites to win this first leg when they clash with Brondby IF in Belgium on Thursday night.
The reward after two legs will be the Europa League group stages and both teams have fought very hard to be here. For Genk they put 9 goals past Fola Esch in the earlier round and then followed that up by beating Lech Poznan 4-1 on aggregate which was a very impressive result.
