Genk vs Club Brugge
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Friday, 27 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Luminus Arena (Genk).
Genk clinched a massive 2-1 win over Anderlecht last time out to join the contest for the European football next term. The team led by Philippe Clement is now only four points adrift of the second place. Can they take advantage of the momentum and make an upset against the table-toppers Club Brugge when the two sides are set to open the new Matchday in First Division A on Friday evening at Luminus Arena.
This promises to be a thrilling encounter given that the visitors will come into it off the back of a 4-4 draw with Standard Liege. Club Brugge scored an impressive ten-goal tally in last two league outings. Given that Genk were also pretty impressive in the final third of late, we have reasons to expect another goal fest in one of the most interesting ties of the round in the top flight.

The most recent set of H2H games also promises goals as six of last eight saw the BTTS option “come in”.
Cub Brugge clinched a narrow 1-0 win when the two teams met at the start of the Championship Round earlier this month at Jan Breydelstadion.
Genk were much more successful in matches at Luminus Arena where they won 15 and lost just 7 of 27 affairs with Club Brugge.
Genk vs Club Brugge: Prediction
Ivan Leko’s men managed to recover from back-to-back away losses to Gent and Anderlecht. They did it in some style, netting ten in last two home ties, but they are again in for a string challenge playing the in-form Genk side on the road. Blauw-Zwart did not have much luck in matches at Luminus Arena over the course of history and we don’t believe they would end the negative run there this time out.
Club Brugge lost five and drew one of last six away matches against Genk. You can back the hosts to snatch the spoils at the 2.40 odds here. Also, the table-toppers shipped four goals on Sunday at home and we find the value in backing Genk to net two or more at the odds of 2.00.
