Powered by a sensational performance from probably the next big name in football, Erling Haaland, Salzburg had registered a massive 6-2 win in the reverse fixture. Since the other match in the group is between Liverpool and Napoli, and that too at Anfield, Salzburg will push for a much-needed win this Wednesday.

Genk vs Salzburg Prediction
Genk fell the last match-day against Gent, in their league encounter, for which the former had enjoyed the home advantage. Right away in the second minute did the visitors find the back of the net to put Genk under pressure.
Exactly as if in the first half, the visiting contingent found the back of the net again, two minutes after half time, to go ahead 0-2 in the scoresheet. Though the hosts did try their best to get back into the fixture, the Gent defense held strong at the back to ensure no goals were put into their net.
Meanwhile, Haaland continued his mesmerizing run with another hattrick the prior game week, to help his team to a 0-3 win over Wolfsberger AC, and that too on the road. It’s really no wonder that the major hitters in Europe are already preparing bids for the Norwegian youngster.
As things stand, this Wednesday, Salzburg hold the upper hand. The prime reason is easily the way they dominated this opponent in the reverse fixture. Though the scorecard indicated 6-2 at the end of the game, the Austrians had fired in five goals within the first half itself. There’s no telling how many they would have managed if they did not take the foot off the gas pedal.
Moreover, Genk are easily the worst of the group and are placed at the bottom of the table, with three losses, and a draw, from their four fixtures so far. They have also conceded the most number of goals and scored the least.
In addition, they are on a three-game losing run and have managed a single win from their last seven fixtures. On the other hand, their opposite number are unbeaten in their last five overall matches, of which four were wins, and on the road, they remained unbeaten in 18 of their previous 20.
Taking into account these observations, rightfully count on a victory for the guests, Salzburg.
