Genk vs Club Brugge
Belgium First Division A
Date: Sunday, 1 March 2020
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK
Venue: Luminus Arena, Genk.
Genk is nowhere close to the team which won the league and earned a spot in UEFA Champions League last season.
After exiting that competition with five defeats in six games, the team continued with poor performances in First Division A, struggling to stay in the top eight positions. They will face current table leaders Club Brugge this weekend at home venue.
After failing to cause an upset against Manchester United in the Europa League playoffs, Club Brugge can now focus on winning the domestic title. They are favorites to beat Genk, currently priced at 1.80.
Genk vs Club Brugge Head-to-head
It could be very helpful for the goals market to mention that the last six meetings between these two sides have always ended with BTTS. Even though Brugge was a better opponent, they failed to beat Genk in the first meeting this season which ended 1-1 FT.
The last game played at this stadium in April 2019 was won by the hosts convincingly 3-1 FT but Genk’s roster shifted drastically since then.
Brugge was slightly more successful if we take all h2h duels into consideration by winning 25 games and losing 22.
Genk vs Club Brugge Prediction
Genk have improved with form and results in comparison to the opening few months of season 2019/2020. They sealed three victories in the last four appearances at this stadium, beating Waasland Beveren, Eupen and Sporting Charleroi consecutively. They were defeated by Standard Liege here two weeks ago though 1-3 FT.
The only consistent thing for Genk in this campaign so far has been efficiency. Their strikers are doing a fine job in this field, bagging 40 goals in 27 matches. Paul Onuachu is topping team charts with eight goals.
Even though Brugge has the best defense in the league, we will back both teams to score as the primary bet. The current table leaders have kept only two clean sheets in the last seven away days in First Division A. As for the full-time winner market, a draw seems like the most realistic outcome, considering Brugge is facing some fitness issues.
