Club Brugge can take a big step towards retaining their title when they travel to face second place Genk who will see this as their big chance to pressure the leaders.

Genk Preview – Will Genk continue their resurgence in form and score a huge result here?

Genk know that anything less than a win and their hopes of pulling off an unlikely title success are over. Considering this is a team who finished the regular season in fourth and 20 points behind Friday’s opponents, the fact they find themselves in second place and now eight points adrift of Club Brugge will be a huge boost to John van den Brom and his players.

It’s the way which the split works in Belgium and Genk will be hoping to close that gap further with a home match against the current champions.

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Friday 5 May)

There has been a significant improvement in Genk’s recent form with five wins in their last seven games and just one defeat in that time. This is on the back of a run of just one win in nine league games which looked for all purposes of ending their hopes for a top four finish and playing in this Championship group let alone this outside chance they have to regain the title they won in 2018/19.

More realistically the aim for Genk is to finish second and ensure they are in Champions League qualification next season. They have a one point lead over Antwerp and Anderlecht at the moment but with another five games to come against their top four rivals there is plenty of twists and turns expected.

Club Brugge Preview – Can the champions get a result that takes them to within touching distance of retaining their title?

There’s no doubt that Club Brugge have been the dominant team in Belgium once again and whilst the reduction in their lead was expected due to the split, their recent form will be somewhat concerning as it has allowed the teams below them to make some ground up.

Last weekend’s draw at home to Anderlecht means it’s now just two wins in their last five league matches – two of which have been losses. That will put some doubt into the players’ mind, especially as the defeats have come against two of the teams in the Championship group.

No team has come close to Club Brugge in terms of their away from with the champions winning at least three games more than any other club in the top-flight on their travels. It’s eight wins in their last 10 away matches so that will give them confidence as they bid to exit this slightly tricky spell.

The signing of Noa Lang from Ajax for this season has been an inspired one. The Dutch striker has scored 15 goals in 25 appearances, which includes finding the net in each of his last three appearances. He’s yet to score against Genk, however.

Genk vs Club Brugge Betting Advice

In terms of the title race it’s win or bust for Genk but they are also under pressure to get a result in the race for second and that potential crack at the Champions League. Club Brugge haven’t been at their best of late but they are still a formidable force as shown by their away form and they will want to put any doubts about them retaining their title to bed.

The visitors and current champions have been dominant in this fixture of late as well, winning four out the last five meetings.

Key Facts – Genk vs Club Brugge Betting Tip

  • Genk are occupying second spot at the moment but can move to within five points of the leaders with a win
  • Club Brugge had won eight of their last nine away in the league before losing at Anderlecht last month
  • It’s four wins in five for Club Brugge in this fixture whilst both teams scoring in their last nine


Ideally it would be a selection with more confidence if Brugge were in better form but I’m banking on them to show their class and add to their excellent away record.
