Eupen Prediction

Eupen sit in 11th place in the Belgian top flight and some 20 points adrift of league leaders, Genk, but absurdly, they also occupy one of the Europa League play-off positions although you have to be actually bottom of the league to miss out on one of these positions!

Eupen have been inconsistent throughout most of the First Division A season so far as they come into this clash having lost four of their last six with defeats to Lokeren, Sint-Truiden, Standard Liege and Gent and although they’ve registered recent wins over Waasland-Beveren and Mouscron, these were against teams that sit third and second from bottom in the division.

The hosts’ home record stands at an even 5-0-5 14/17 which includes winning four of their last five on home turf with a notable 2-0 home win over Anderlecht, but they’ll have their work cut out if they’re to get anything from this clash with Genk here today.

Genk Prediction

Onto Genk then, and the visitors sit proudly at the top of the First Division A with a seven point cushion ahead of second placed Club Brugge who take on Antwerp this Sunday also, so the league leaders could further extend their lead with a win at Eupen this afternoon.

Genk will be in reasonably confident mood as they’ve lost just once all season which was a 2-1 loss at home to Cercle Brugge but otherwise, Philippe Clement’s side have been the model of consistency, particularly away from home where they hold a very useful looking away record of 6-3-0 25/9.

In addition, Genk have kept four clean sheets on their travels so far this season and they’ll fancy their chances of not only winning this match but also keeping a fifth shut-out too. They also carry a serious goal threat with the likes of midfielders Malinovskiy (8 goals) and Pozuelo (4 goals) along with forwards Samatta (12 goals) and Trossard (9 goals).

Betting Tips Verdict

Genk should run out easy winners in this one despite being away from home.
