Genk v Anderlecht – Jupiler League Betting Preview + Prediction
19 May 2016, Cristal Arena , 18:30 GMT +0
Anyone following Genk will know, that at home stadium is where the Genk shines. To back up this statement the “Smurfs” suffered only 3 defeats on the home pitch during Jupiler League.
Looking at recent games for Genk, it’s been up and down. Winning 3 consecutive games against Oostende (4:0), Waregem (1:2) and Club Brugge (4:2), then loosing 2 against Gent (1:2) and Club Brugge (3:1). It really seems as a team that is unpredictable of what will be their next result, but that might not be the case, as one thing is for sure. Out of the last 7 home games, 6 of them were a win for Genk. As for missing players, only Malinovsk and Castagne will be sidelined.
Now for the visiting side, Anderlecht. They, as well as Genk perform much better when playing at home, compared to away matches. That is clear when you take a look at recent away fixtures, where they failed to impress 3 times in a row, against Gent (1:1), Oostende (4:2) and Club Brugge (4:0). So it’s safe to say Anderlecth will have a harder time today, when they visit Genk. But there is another problem that concerns Besnik Hasi and its injuries. Deschacht, Najar, Obradovic and Defour are all injured, as for Buttner, he will miss the match due to suspension.
Taking all that into consideration, Genk has a great chance to win today against badly depleted squad of Anderlecht and get themselves closer to European football next season. Take Genk ti win this one, the odds of 1.87 on 12Bet are a great value.
Prediction: Genk -0.50
Odds: 1.87 12Bet
