Standard Liege vs Genk
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 23 August 2020
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Stade Maurice Dufrasne (Liège).
Standard Liege has carried on their unbeaten streak in which they finished last season to the new edition of the Jupiler League this season.
With a two-game winning streak in the campaign at the start itself, the Reds are pretty intimidating with their form. Their previous encounter was on the road and they defeated Waasland-Beveren with a 1-2 scoreline.
Genk is not behind in the table, but they dropped points in the last match after a 1-1 draw at home against Leuven in the league. They are still unbeaten in the campaign this season and have scored goals in both the games consecutively, which shows they have a fighting spirit in the game.
The Smurfs will not make it easy for the home team, but will not be entirely in control of the encounter.

Standard Liege vs Genk Prediction
With both teams at such a pleasant form in the league’s start, the match will be tight at Liege to determine a clear winner out of the two strong contenders.
More than their ground advantage, Standard Liege has been unbeaten in their recent three h2h meetings with the visitor. Thus, we can back the Reds to be the favorites with a double chance in the encounter in case of a draw.
The Reds kept a clean sheet in their opening home match in the campaign this season. However, Genk has scored in both the fixtures in the schedule. So, a BTTS will probably serve as a suitable option for the punters in ninety minutes.
