Genk vs Sint-Truiden
Belgian First Division A
Date: Sunday, 23rd October, 2016
Kick-off: 17:00 UK
Venue: Luminus Arena, Genk.
Genk’s fans are probably not enjoying the performances in their domestic First Division A so far. Their squad is currently sitting in not so great 9th position after ten weeks of action, which is far under the pre-season expectations set by the club board. They need to recover, and they need to do it fast because Anderlecht and Zulte shown no intention to stop winning.
Sunday’s clash against St Truiden is a perfect opportunity to get back into the upper part of the table and they will be welcoming The Yellows in great team spirit. Genk have battled one of the biggest European victories in recent club’s history on Thursday against Athletic Bilbao. The Baskians were sent home without points and the crowd was delighted.
Genk vs Sint-Truiden: Head-to-Head Stats
The tradition and previous head to head games are favoring the home side. Genk have hosted St Truiden 17 times so far, ending nine games in a victorious fashion. It is been a while since the visitors achieved some success at Luminous Arena; they have been waiting more than eight years to conquer it once again. The last match was played in December 2015 when Genk claimed an easy 3-0 win.
Sint-Truiden have won just 4 times in 36 meetings against Genk and one of which was in the last season’s home game on August 2015.
Genk vs Sint-Truiden: Prediction
Home victory is probably going to be one of the biggest banker bets in Belgium this weekend. Genk have finally started performing well, which was obvious during their Europa League duel against Bilbao. While Truiden have lost the majority of games on the road this season and we are doubting their ability to even score a goal in this match.
