Lech Poznan vs Genk Preview

Belgians Genk will take on Lech Poznan and with these two recognizable teams meeting at this stage.

One of them will not have the opportunity to test themselves in the play offs and qualify for the Europa League proper. This 2 legged match then promises to be very interesting.

Genk are the big odds on favorites to win and can be backed at around 1.35 to do so. The bookmakers are not holding out much hope for Lech Poznan who have been priced up at 9.00 to win this game.

Poznan’s price will be shorter for the return leg but it is clear who the better team are and anything but a home win on Thursday would be seen as a shock.

There are goals in both teams and Genk will want to start the game very quick and get under their opponents skins.

The Poles can cause Genk more troubles than many believe and that is why we will back the away side on the handicap to win. Even with a +2 goals start on the visitors are still very good value.

Our main bet though will be to see both teams to score. Poznan have the ability to create many chances and by doing this we can cover many markets in what could be a very unpredictable game even if Genk do remain the favorites to win on the night.
