Genk vs Standard Liege Prediction & Match Preview

Genk vs Standard Liege
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 16 February 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Luminus Arena (Genk).

The impressive form of Genk since mid-December, and especially at the Luminus Arena, tips the scale in their favor this Sunday. On top of that, Liege will have to deal with the fact they are on the road, and that they have suffered in such games almost all through this season.

Genk vs Standard Liege Prediction

Genk were held to a 1-1 draw by Antwerp on the road, the last match-day. Despite dropping the two points, it’s impressive that the team avoided a loss away from home, that too against a top-tier squad.

Elsewhere, Liege were held to a goalless draw at home by Club Brugge. Despite being at home, it could be forgiven that Standard Liege had failed to post the win, or even score a goal. The reason being, they had played hosts to the toppers (by a mile) of the table.

However, on the road, Liege really have struggled this season. In fact, they have managed a total of four wins away from home in 2019-20, and three of these victories had come against teams currently placed in the bottom-most four positions in the table.

On the other hand, Genk are on a four-game winning run at home, and scored twice or more in three of their past four matches here. They have also found the back of the net in ten of their former eleven games here, and the only encounter where they failed to do so was against the second-placed Gent.

Furthermore, Genk had recorded three of the last five h2h wins, and ten of the past twelve h2h wins had gone to the hosts of the day. And finally, Liege had not even found the back of the net even once in their last three visits to this stadium. Taking all these observations into account, expect an impressive display from Genk this match-day.
