Standard Liege Preview – Can hosts raise Standard?

After finishing in 6th place in the Belgian First Division A regular season, Standard Liege then entered the Conference League play-offs but the second phase of the season was a period that Standard Liege will probably want to forget as they lost five of their six matches.

Home and away defeats against Oostende and Mechelen along with a 2-0 loss away at Gent well and truly dashed any hopes of a place in this season’s inaugural Europa Conference League, so the hosts will be keen to improve upon that this time around.

However, having picked up just four wins from their last 17 matches overall in the Belgian top flight, Standard Liege may well have a fight on their hands in this season-opener against Genk, whom they lost against in their last meeting, a 2-1 cup defeat back in April.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Genk Preview – Can Genk open account?

By contrast, it was a far more successful campaign last season in the First Division A for Friday’s visitors, Genk, as they finished in the top four at the end of the regular season and then finished runners-up to Club Brugge in the subsequent Championship Round, thus earning themselves a place in the Champions League qualifiers.

Five wins out of their six matches in the Championship Round saw Genk sweep aside challenges from Royal Antwerp and Anderlecht for the Champions League qualifier spot, picking up victories over Antwerp home and away and most impressive of all, home and away wins against Club Brugge as well.

The bigger picture shows that Genk have lost just one of their last 12 matches overall in the Belgian top flight and they look a tough prospect for Standard Liege on Friday night.
