Anderlecht vs Genk Match Preview
Genk have been in fine form through April and now still top the league table with a three points gap behind them, despite seeing a thriller 3-2 loss at Club Brugge end their five-match unbeaten streak – opening the scoresheet early on but seeing a second-half comeback.
Blue-Whites have beaten Gent (2-1), Club Brugge (3-1), and Antwerp (4-0) in front of the home fans and also snatched points at Standard Liege (1-3) and Gent (0-1) along the way, which should have Philippe Clement’s men very motivated to recuperate quickly and secure the title.
Anderlecht have plans of their own in a chase to secure the Europa League Play-offs after jumping Gent to the 5th spot, as they picked it up and bagged a 2-1 home win over Standard Liege as well as a 1-1 draw at Antwerp.
Purple & Whites have struggled for consistency, though, and this was a problem at Stade Constant Vanden Stock too. They’ve only earned their second win in seven home outings as they beat Standard in early May and Karim Belhocine will have to find more defensive stability if they’re to shoot down Genk.
Indeed, the visitors have been more convincing this term and their three wins over Anderlecht speak for themselves this term, as we now back them to the fourth in a row at Evens with Paddy Power.
However, we feel Anderlecht will put on a great challenge and want the points just as much on the day, which promises a thrilling contest in Brussels. With that in mind, we’re going for goals and Over 2.5 Goals FT looks like banker material at 8/13 with bet365.
