Mouscron vs Genk
Belgian First Division A
Date: Saturday, 15th October, 2016
Kick-off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Stade Le Canonnier, Mouscron.
The first thought coming to our minds about this particular league fixture is ‘Goals Galore’. Both teams have been playing some exciting attack oriented football over the last couple of weeks. However, the stylish play have so far failed to bring positive results as expected as both sides are currently sitting in the bottom half of the league table. But there will be no shortage of entertainment when they go head to head in the 10th round of Belgian First Division on Saturday evening.
The home team played some crazy matches in the last month. De Boeck’s men have lost with 1-5 to Zulte-Waregen and 0-3 to Club Brugge on home ground. However, they managed to bring home six points from away matches at Westerlo and Eupen in which they scored the total of seven goals which is very interesting and strange if you will allow.
Genk on the other side has managed to celebrate back to back victories over Sassuolo and Mechelen. However, they did lose the game at Kortrijk with 4-1 away from home in the last weekend of September.
Mouscron vs Genk: Head-to-Head Stats
Mouscron and Genk did not play much throughout the history, since the home team did not play the elite class of Belgian football that often. Genk as expected are better of the two since their first meeting in September 2014.
Mouscron won one out of five matches, but in some style, having demolished Genk away from home with 0 – 4 just one year ago. The last match between the two sides saw Genk’s narrow 0 – 1 win away from home when Buffel’s goal made all the difference.
