Genk Prediction – Can Genk open account at home?

After the first two matches in Group E, Belgian hosts, Genk, find themselves bottom of the group with just 1 point following a heavy 6-2 hammering away from home to Salzburg, but they did manage to steady the ship somewhat with a point against Napoli in a 0-0 draw at home on Matchday 2.

Genk head into Matchday 3 on the back of a disappointing 1-0 defeat away at Standard Liege in the Belgian First Division A, but they had previously put together a 4-match unbeaten run in all competitions which included wins against Oostende and Mouscron in the domestic top flight, a cup win against Ronse and the aforementioned draw with Napoli in the Champions League.

Switch to the Champions League though and you’ll find that Genk have really struggled with the step up in quality as the Belgians are without a win from their last 8 ties in this competition, a sequence that includes 4 defeats and 4 draws.

The hosts have also managed just 3 wins out of their 11 home ties in the Champions League too, with wins against Sparta Prague, Partizan and Maccabi Haifa but they’ve never played Liverpool before in any competition until this evening.

Liverpool Prediction – Can Liverpool maintain unbeaten run?

Wednesday night’s visitors, Liverpool, bring a 6-match unbeaten sequence into Matchday 3 of the Champions League as The Reds look to keep their challenge for a top two finish in Group E on track with a win in Belgium this evening.

Premier League wins over Chelsea, Sheffield United and Leicester City have helped Jurgen Klopp’s side to the top of the Premier League table and although they were held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester United at Old Trafford, their attentions will now turn to defending their Champions League title after making an indifferent start to this new campaign.

Liverpool’s defence got off to a bad start as they were dealt a 2-0 defeat away at Napoli on Matchday 1 but the merseysiders bounced back on Matchday 2 with a 4-3 home win against Salzburg to place them in 2nd spot in the group.

There’s usually goals wherever Liverpool roam and the Champions League is no exception as 4 of Liverpool’s last 6 away ties in this competition have seen over 2.5 goals scored, and they should also secure a win here too.


Key-Facts – Genk v Liverpool

  • Genk have gone 8 matches without a win in the Champions League
  • Genk have won just 3 out of their 11 home ties in the Champions League
  • Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 6 matches in all competitions


Betting Tips Verdict
