Liverpool vs Genk Match Preview
Liverpool remain second to Napoli in Champions League Group E, but should take another significant step towards qualification with an emphatic home victory against Genk.
The Reds’ only defeat in any competition this season was 2-0 away to Napoli, which is why they are trailing the Italian club in the table, and the match-day five reverse fixture at Anfield on November 27 may well decide who advances as group winners.
In the meantime, Liverpool would probably settle for a couple of home wins in this pool on Tuesday, with Napoli welcoming third-placed Red Bull Salzburg, although a draw at the Stadio San Paolo would also go down very nicely with Jurgen Klopp et al.
For their part, the reigning European champions need to again beat Genk, which they did pretty comfortably in Belgium two weeks ago 4-1 with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scoring a double and the other goals coming from Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.
Genk were unsurprisingly outclassed and the reigning champions of their country are struggling in the defence of their title, stuck in mid-table and having lost four of their six away matches – while they were also drubbed 6-2 at Salzburg in the Champions League.
With Liverpool facing Manchester City at the weekend, Klopp may decide to rest a few of his key players here in the confidence that his side can still beat Genk and with such a superb European home record of late (see stats above), a repeat of the scoreline from two weeks ago looks distinctly plausible.
