Genk vs Gent: Preview and Predictions

Genk vs Gent
Belgian First Division A
Date: Thursday, 10 May 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Luminus Arena, Genk.

Gent just can’t seem to be able to catch a breakthrough in the post-season. They lost four and drew one of last five league ties, a streak that dropped them down to fifth in the league standings. The Buffalos will need to find the way out of the crisis on Thursday evening at Luminus Arena if they are to keep dreaming of the Europa League football next term.

Genk re-joined the contest of the top-four finish thanks to a surprising 2-1 win over Anderlecht in late-April, but they will come into this match in low spirits after suffering a true disaster away at Standard Liege last weekend. Blauw-Wit shipped as many as five goals in a demolishing defeat on Sunday afternoon and it will be interesting to see if Philippe Clement will find the way to motivate his lads to bounce back in a highly-important contest four days later.

Genk vs Gent: Head-to-head

Genk were the much more successful side in the history of H2H meetings with Gent.

Blauw-Wit won 27 and lost 17 of 56 encounters against the Buffalos.

Four straight H2H tis saw both teams on target before the goalless draw in the clash played 20 days ago at GHELAMCO-arena.

Genk vs Gent: Prediction

Gent obviously have huge issues producing in the final third given they scored just two goals in last five league matches. They will find it tough to end the dismal record here at Luminus Arena knowing that Genk conceded only two goals during the streak of two wins and a dark in last three league games on the home pitch. We have to respect such streak for Genk given the opposition included the likes of Standard Liege, Anderlecht and Club Brugge.

To sum it all up, we have to back the home win at 2.00 based on both the H2H record and Genk’s superb form in front of the home against better opponents than Gent. The visitors lost four and drew one of last five league matches netting just twice along the way and our alternative option will be Genk to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.75.
