Genk vs Liverpool
Date: Wednesday, 23 October 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Luminus Arena (Genk).
The Reds are playing things too close to the chest in the continental fixtures, and this is not something new for them. At present, they possess the third position in the table and are slowly running out of time and chances to make any more mistakes. The fact that they are taking on a squad from a comparatively lesser Belgian league, boosts their chances to emerge victorious this match-day.
However, the struggles the reigning European champions have suffered on the road will probably affect their scope for a clean sheet.

Genk vs Liverpool Prediction
Jurgen Klopp’s men have been on a rampage for the last couple of years. Especially the arrival of Virgil van Dijk at the back has strengthened them beyond belief, and they rightfully are targeting back-to-back triumphs in the European arena now.
At present, they are on a winning run of five games and have recorded victories in 11 of their former 12 games. Moreover, where they have fared astonishingly has been in the domestic circuit. With a 100% win record in the Premier League, the squad holds an eight-point lead at the top and is threatening to put an end to their long wait for domestic glory.
The confidence they are able to acquire from this indomitable streak is no laughing matter, and taking into account that the opponents are a part of the First Division A, the guests could really make an impact this Wednesday.
In addition, the Smurfs hold the sixth spot in the domestic table and have been struggling to replicate their run in the previous campaign.
They were also winless in seven of their former thirteen overall match-ups, and in the CL group stage, the unit is placed dead-last in the table, and have conceded the most goals so far.
Taking these observations into account, count on the English cavalry to come out on top at the end of the tie.
In regards to goals though, the Reds, in spite of their impressive run in the Premier League, have been failing to make a significant impact on the road in European ties. So far, they have conceded five goals from their two fixtures in the tournament till now and lost their sole such game as well.
Consequentially, the chances for the guests to keep a clean sheet are considerably low this match-day.
