Genk will win

Genk – Gent Match Prediction | 10-11-2019 12:00

Genk have been in a much better shape, though, and will be no easy task for them. Theyve beaten Club Brugge and Standard Liege quite comfortably since their home win over Gent in early April, which should have them in a great mood as they travel to GHELAMCO-arena. Theyve been conceding goals on the regular but impressed in the final third, primarily led by Mbwana Samatta up front.

Genks failure to stamp their authority on matches is really beginning to cost them, while their seeming inability to win isnt helping much either. They remain just two points off the fourth and final Europa League spot, though their form needs to improve if theyre to secure continental football ahead of both Charleroi and Thursdays opponents. Liege last time out, conceding five in the process, Saturdays hosts find themselves bottom of the pile in Belgiums Championship Group. Having been taken apart by St.

Genk - Gent H2H

I can see this being another high scoring game. This will leave them open at the back though, and Genk have only failed to score at home once in their last 16 outings. Gent will have to go for it from the outset and they have scored seven goals in their last four away games in all competitions. Considering the first leg, backing Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score at 20/21 looks a good choice here, so Im going for that alongside a 2-2 correct score predictions at 10/1.

Liege and say that it has been coming, because not many wouldve foreseen them getting smashed to that degree. It would be easy to overreact to Genks shocking result against St. Prior to that fixture, Phillipe Clements side hadnt been doing too badly, but they also werent doing too well. Theyre unlikely to be completely dominated by many teams, but theyre also a side that can quite easily be edged out. Recent results, before their 5-0 loss against Liege, of 1-1, 2-1, 0-0, 2-2, 1-0, 1-0, 0-0, 2-1 and 0-0 would support this notion.

Yves Vanderhaeghes men did lose last time out, but they couldve won just as easily. In fact, in a game where they dominated both in terms of possession and chances created, and conceded just two shots, Thursdays visitors really ought to have taken all three points. Just two of the visitors last 11 matches have seen a winning margin greater than one. Similarly, Gent are also the sort of side who dont do too much either way; theyre either narrowly beaten or narrowly defeated.

Blauw-Wit shipped as many as five goals in a demolishing defeat on Sunday afternoon and it will be interesting to see if Philippe Clement will find the way to motivate his lads to bounce back in a highly-important contest four days later. Genk re-joined the contest of the top-four finish thanks to a surprising 2-1 win over Anderlecht in late-April, but they will come into this match in low spirits after suffering a true disaster away at Standard Liege last weekend.

Reason For Genk vs Gent Betting Tips

Frankly, backing Gent on the Draw No Bet market makes far more appeal than backing the hosts to win at skinny odds. Based on all available evidence, its felt that the pair should be quite evenly matched in the market, so its easy to side with the visitors given the disparity in prices. In addition, given that they both seem to adopt a style that is something in between, it really is no coincidence that the pair have drawn in three of their last four meetings.

With that in mind, we hope to see goals on Saturday and were also going for Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.50 which comes off as more of a banker bet. However, we feel Gent will do their bit in making this an exciting challenge in front of the home crowd, desperate for points to challenge a spot in the top 5.

This puts them in an excellent position to progress in the competition, and they have kept the confidence rolling over the weekend as well. Genk managed a shock victory when they visited fellow Belgians Gent in the Europa League first leg last week, going into half-time 4-1 up and eventually winning the game 5-2, despite hints of a second half comeback from the hosts.

Gent obviously have huge issues producing in the final third given they scored just two goals in last five league matches. They will find it tough to end the dismal record here at Luminus Arena knowing that Genk conceded only two goals during the streak of two wins and a dark in last three league games on the home pitch. We have to respect such streak for Genk given the opposition included the likes of Standard Liege, Anderlecht and Club Brugge.

Genk vs Kortrijk Betting tips

During the regular season, Under 2.5 Goals landed in 67% of Genks home matches, as well as in 53% of Gents away matches. Given the fact that both have been struggling somewhat in the final third, coupled with the fact that each of the other two meetings between the pair this season have been somewhat lacking in clear-cut chances, its easy to conclude that Under 2.5 Goals is worth a punt at the prices too.

To sum it all up, we have to back the home win at 2.00 based on both the H2H record and Genks superb form in front of the home against better opponents than Gent. The visitors lost four and drew one of last five league matches netting just twice along the way and our alternative option will be Genk to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.75.

Having played well and kept a clean sheet in the recent reversal of this fixture, the hosts will come here feeling upbeat, though its tough to see how they merit such red-hot favouritism. As the league table suggests, theres not a lot between this pair, so the fact that the home side are priced at even-money is somewhat confusing. In fact, its hard to see how Genk warrant anything other than marginal favouritism, even on home soil.
