Liverpool vs Genk
Date: Tuesday, 5 November 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool).
Napoli could really make matters complicated for the defending champions. Against expectations, the Italians are placed at the top of the table, and they have already defeated Liverpool in the first match-day of the competition.
This Tuesday, with the weight of Anfield behind them, Jurgen Klopp’s men are easily the favorites. They cannot, however, take this fixture lightly, and seriously mess their chances to become group champions, or even worse, to progress to the next round.
Some good news for home fans is the fact that opponents Genk has failed to match their performances in the preceding campaign so far. Not only have they suffered in the CL, but they are currently placed seventh in the Belgian First Division A.

Liverpool vs Genk Prediction
Klopp’s men seem dead set to go after further glory this campaign as well. They are rightfully in the lead in the PL race, and they stand a good chance to defend their CL title as well, provided the qualification process in the group stage goes without incident.
This match-day, the odds are in favor of the Reds. However, they are under pressure to deliver, and this could create some unwanted pressure.
Still, they do have the confidence of being the reigning European champions, the favorite to lift the PL title at the end of the season, and most importantly, the comfort of the Anfield pitch, and the crowd.
On the other hand, we have a representative from the comparatively far inferior Belgian league.
In addition, considering current form – Jordan Henderson and his boys have won 12 of their former 14 games and scored twice or more in 13 of their previous 16 as well. They also managed to win 17 of their preceding 19 appearances in front of the home crowd, and importantly, have not lost a single home game this whole 2019.
Furthermore, the reverse fixture of this upcoming game ended in a massive 1-4 victory on the road for the current PL toppers, and they will in all probability repeat another huge win this Tuesday, with the aid of home advantage.
