Genk Preview – Can Genk rekindle form?

Genk may hold home advantage at their Luminus Arena for this upcoming 1st leg tie against Shakhtar Donetsk but the Belgian hosts have been in ordinary form of late as they’ve won just one of their last seven games overall in all competitions.

That solitary win came in the shape of a 5-2 home win against MVV in a pre-season friendly but three defeats and three draws aren’t the type of results that a club needs to bring into a Champions League tie.

In addition, Genk also suffered an opening day 4-3 defeat at home to Oostend in the Belgian First Division A which doesn’t bode well for the visit of Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday night, especially as Genk have failed to win any of their last 12 ties at this level.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Shakhtar Donetsk Preview – Can Shakhtar earn 1st leg lead?

By contrast, Ukrainian outfit, Shakhtar Donetsk, have suffered just one defeat out of their last nine matches in all competitions which was a pre-season friendly loss away at Polish side, Rakow Czestochowa, but they’ve also picked up seven wins during this period too.

The visitors have also started their domestic Premier League campaign in positive fashion by recording back-to-back wins against Inhulets and Lviv, with 2-1 and 3-0 wins respectively while results in the Champions League in previous times have been reasonable enough.

Shakhtar Donetsk have lost just three of their last 11 ties at this level so they stand a decent chance of getting a result in Belgium on Tuesday night.
