Slavia Prague vs Genk
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 14 February 2019
Kick-Off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Sinobo Stadium, Prague
Slavia Prague have started February well and they host Genk for their Europa League clash on Thursday in good spirits, after beating Rosenborg in the Atlantic Cup and restarting the Czech Liga campaign with a 2-0 win over Teplice.
Red and whites have been in great form at Sinobo Stadium and will now hope they can show off such a character once again, where earning an advantage here surely proves an essential task for Jindrich Trpisovsky’s men. However, they’re in for a tough task and have a lot to prove in front of the home crowd.
Genk come into the match on the back of a two-game winning streak of their own, where they beat Waasland-Beveren and Standard Liege in two tough league outings to build on the top spot at the top of the table. They’ve been scoring numbers of goals lately and we’ll now surely see them very motivated to keep it up, as Philippe Clement searches for an upset in Prague and their fourth win in five outings.
Slavia Prague vs Genk: Head-to-head
The sides haven’t had a chance to meet before and Europa League brings them together for the first head-to-head clash.
Genk have both scored and conceded goals in five of their last seven trips.
Slavia Prague come as underdogs and want to use the home turf to shift the odds in their favour.
Slavia Prague vs Genk: Prediction
We don’t see them making it happen, though, and we’ll now rather stick our necks out for Genk to leave unbeaten – with a Draw priced at 3.20. We have seen both sides in good form but we don’t see any of them turning this one their way with a lot to be played for in the second leg.
We should be in for goals and with that in mind, we’ll also back a YES on Both teams to score at 1.80! We have seen both sides scoring and conceding many goals lately and this looks like great way to go about the market.
