Genk vs Slavia Prague Match Preview
Genk host Slavia on the back of a goalless draw earned in Prague looking to build on it and make their way to the 8th Finals past the Czech rivals, hoping to put a convincing 3-1 loss at Club Brugge behind them and put on a more confident display at Luminus Arena.
Blue-Whites have bagged four wins in their last five outings here and suffered just one loss (1-2 to Royal Excel Mouscron) along the way, beating Sarpsborg 08 (4-0), KV Oostende (2-0), Gent (3-1), and Standard Liege (2-0) and basing their success on rock-solid defensive displays before anything else.
Slavia have lost on their consistency and this has proven costly over the weekend too as they dropped all three Czech Liga points at Viktoria Plzen (2-0), where their struggles to score goals on the regular proved costly once again.
Jindich Trpisovsky’s men failed to find the net at all in three of their last five outings across competitions and this will surely be very worrying once again, as they look for a cure in Belgium. The visitors still sit at the top of the First Division A table and we should see them confident in such a search.
Still, we feel Genk will have what it takes to turn this one their way and we’ll go for a Home win at Evens with William Hill. We have seen them in great shape at Luminus Arena and we now hope to see them building on such a tally.
However, we also expect a strong challenge and a narrow contest in Belgium, where just a single goal could put this one beyond reach. We’ll thus also go for a low-scoring clash with Under 2.5 Goals FT, which looks like buying money for old rope at 4/6 with bet365.
