RB Salzburg vs Genk Match Preview
RB Salzburg enjoyed exciting football as they bagged eight wins in eight competitive outings early in the new campaign and they host Genk hoping to build on such performances, where we’ve seen goals coming from all directions and an amazing average of six per match.
Die Mozartstadter beat Hartberg (7-2) over the weekend as André Ramalho, Okugawa, Daka (x2), and Haland (x3) all made it on the scoresheet. This will surely serve as a great boost to their dressing room atmosphere and we certainly hope to see them impress at Red Bull Arena once again.
Genk have struggled for such pick-me-ups lately and we’ve seen a lack of consistency hold them back in a chase to join the top of the First Division A table early on. They have ten points to their name after seven outings and the struggles to keep it together at the back will be worrying for Felice Mazzu.
Blauw-Wit snatched an exciting 1-1 draw at Club Brugge ahead of the International break but saw a disappointing 2-1 loss at Sporting Charleroi after it, where they conceded two early goals and failed to bounce. They’ve conceded six goals in four away games this term and we feel this could prove costly here as well.
We will thus back Salzburg to an exciting win in front of the home fans as we go for a Home win and Over 2.5 Goals FT at 21/20 with Coral, which feels like a generous pick seeing their records lately and the attacking football they play under Jesse Marsch.
Genk haven’t lacked in the goalscoring department, though, and we feel they’ll do their part in making it a thriller on the day. We’ll thus also go for a Yes on Both teams to score, which comes at 8/13 with bet365 and has seen support from many big hitters as well.
