Royal Antwerp vs Genk Prediction
Royal Antwerp suffered their first defeat, since early November, after Club Brugge took them down with a narrow 1-0 scoreline, on the road, last week. Nevertheless, the hosts bounced to winning ways soon after, by getting the better of Kortrijk in the Belgium Cup.
It is also worth mentioning that the home team are currently sitting third on the ladder, four points behind second-placed Gent.
On the other hand, Genk will be making the trip to Bosuistadion this Thursday, on the back of a 1-0 win over Sporting Charleroi at home. The guests have now stumbled just twice in their past seven clashes in the first division.
However, to be frank, the visitors are sporting a very poor away record. For starters, Genk have just three wins to boast of from their past twelve outings in the league. To make matters worse, the guests have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous two visits here on the trot either.
Furthermore, Royal Antwerp are one of the only three teams that are yet to admit defeat at home. With home advantage out of the equation, Genk have little or chance of picking up the win this week.
Be that as it may, the hosts have shared the spoils on two occasions here so far. Meanwhile, Genk have also salvaged a point thrice in their outings this season.
Taking into account that their last h2h meeting here had also ended as a tie, back a draw no bet, just to be on the safer side.
Additionally, despite the impressive form at home, Royal Antwerp have kept a clean sheet just three times. Moreover, both teams have had their names on the scoresheet together in all but one of their past six h2h meetings here.
Given that visitors have also racked up eighteen goals on the road this term, count on Genk to find the back of the net along with Royal Antwerp on Thursday.
