Genk vs Waasland-Beveren Prediction

Genk avoided succumbing to back to back defeats last week by pulling off a narrow 2-1 win over Cercle Brugge on the road. The hosts however have tasted success just once in their past ten games in all competitions.

With just seven wins so far in the first division as well, the reigning champions are currently eighth in the league, seventeen points behind present table-toppers Club Brugge.

On the other hand, Waasland-Beveren are just three points shy of hitting rock bottom on the ladder. The visitors have looked tame in all of their clashes so far and will be making the trip to Luminus Arena on the back of a disappointing 4-0 defeat at the hands of Antwerp.

To make matters worse, the guests have come away with the win just once in their nine outings so far. Miserably, they have garnered no more than six points from a possible twenty-seven as well.

Taking into account that the hosts thrashed four unanswered goals past this foe in the reverse fixture of this clash back in August, count on Genk to make light work of the visiting contingent this weekend.

Furthermore, H2h history at this venue clearly indicates that goals have been in abundance whenever these two lock horns. All of their last six meetings here on the trot have featured over 2.5 goals on the charts.

With Waasland-Beveren losing by a two-goal margin in three of their previous four trips on the road, expect Genk to be keen on racking up the goals scoring charts in this one.
