Genk vs Royal Excel Mouscron
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Saturday, 26th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Luminus Arena (Genk).
The Smurfs play nothing as their name suggests. Once on the pitch, the team would annihilate anything that would come in front of them. With the added advantage of the backing of the home crowd, it’s game over for most teams.
Bernd Storck’s men are severely overmatched in this tie. The group of players have scored the fewest number of goals in the Jupiler league and are taking the pitch against the most fearsome frontline in the country.
Remember the famous lines – “And the Chelsea fans cover their eyes in horror”. That’s what I would like to advise those who would root for the visitors in this tie. Cover your eyes and save yourself some suffering.

Genk vs Royal Excel Mouscron Prediction
KRC won their last four matches at home while conceding only one goal in grand total. They are on a run of 22 unbeaten games from their last 23 home-ties, a streak running back to last season. Coupled with that the team from Mouscron has scored just a single goal in their last six official h2h matches combined. The team also failed to score in two of their last four away ties. I strongly anticipate a win for the current league-toppers while keeping a clean sheet.
The Smurfs have scored in each of their last 23 home-ties, while Les Hurlus conceded in 17 of their last 20 trips away from home. Bernd Storck’s men were also winless in 16 of their last 20 away ties. On top of that the last three ties at the stadium reads a combined scorecard of 12-3, in favor of the league toppers, and as mentioned before, they have conceded just a single goal in the last six h2h games. I expect the potential champions to win both the halves.
