Genk Prediction – Can Genk continue dominance over visitors?

Genk’s inconsistent start to this new Belgian First Division A season continued when they registered a resounding 4-0 win away at early strugglers, Waasland-Beveren, last weekend which has lifted Friday night’s hosts up into a more respectable mid-table position.

It’s still early days of course, but Genk had previously suffered worrying back-to-back defeats to Mechelen 3-1 away from home and a very surprising 2-0 loss at home to Zulte-Waregem at their Luminus Arena which prompted a positive reaction from Felice Mazzu’s side last weekend.

Prior to that shock defeat at home to Zulte-Waregem, Genk had put together a promising 9-match unbeaten run on home turf in the Belgian top flight, which included a convincing 3-0 victory over Friday night’s opponents, Anderlecht, in their last meeting which was back in March.

Indeed, Genk have had the upper hand over Anderlecht in recent encounters at their Luminus Arena as the hosts have won the last 3 meetings on the trot at home, while forward, Samatta (4 goals) looks the most likely for the hosts.

Anderlecht Prediction – Can Anderlecht pull away from relegation zone?

As mentioned earlier, it’s still early days in this new Belgian top flight season but nevertheless, it’s been a disappointing start to the campaign for Friday night’s visitors, Anderlecht, as they find themselves floundering near the bottom of the division.

With just 2 points to their name from the first 4 matches of this season, Anderlecht occupy fourth from bottom in the First Division A and sit in 13th place thanks to draws against Royal Excel Mouscron and Mechelen, both of which were 0-0 stalemates.

Two defeats to Oostende 2-1 at home and a 4-2 loss away at Kortrijk respectively mean that the visitors have plenty of work on their hands if they’re to start climbing up the domestic top flight league table, and recent results have been poor by Anderlecht’s standards.

Anderlecht have managed to scrape just 1 win out of their last 14 matches overall in the First Division A and this disappointing sequence includes 8 defeats, while their only highlight during this poor period of results was a 2-1 home win against Standard Liege.

Anderlecht are also without an away win from their last 7 matches on their travels in the top flight.


Key-Facts – Genk v Anderlecht

  • Genk have lost just 1 out of their last 1o home matches in the top flight
  • Genk have won the last 3 meetings at home against Anderlecht
  • Anderlecht are without an away win from their last 7 matches on the road


Betting Tips Verdict

Whilst Genk have struggled to start with, they hold the upper hand in recent exchanges against Anderlecht and should grab the points here.
