Anderlecht Prediction

Anderlecht sit in 5th place in this 6-team Championship Group but just two points ahead of bottom club, Gent, with just two matches of the second phase of the Belgian top flight season remaining, and a tough assignment against Genk on Thursday night.

Anderlecht have produced disappointing and below average displays and results so far in this Championship Group campaign as the hosts have registered just 1 win out of their opening 8 matches to date, which was a 2-1 home win over 4th placed Standard Liege who are 5 points above them in the table.

The hosts currently occupy the last remaining Europa League qualifier berth and this is the best they can hope for now having put in such abject displays in this second phase, following 5 defeats within these 8 matches to date.

Losses to Genk (away), Club Brugge (home and away), Antwerp and Standard Liege have prevented Anderlecht from nailing down this final Europa League spot, and they need a result against Genk tonight to keep Gent at arms length.

Genk Prediction

Genk sit top of the Championship Group and therefore occupy the only automatic Champions League spot in the table, but hold just a three point margin now over 2nd placed Club Brugge following a 3-2 loss away at their 2nd placed rivals last time out.

Genk therefore need a result of their own at Anderlecht on Thursday night in order to consolidate their position at the top of the group and hope that Standard Liege can do them a favour by beating Club Brugge at home.

Everything is still in Genk’s hands though, and having previously posted 6 wins from their 8 matches to date in this second phase of the season, which includes winning their previous 5 matches on the trot, the visitors will still be confident that they can bounce back with a win on Thursday night.

Recent wins against Gent (home and away), Club Brugge, Standard Liege and Antwerp have set them on their way but they must at least avoid any further defeats in order to keep Club Brugge at bay.

  • Anderlecht have lost 5 of their 8 matches in the Championship Group to date
