Genk faces Salzburg at the Luminus Arena in Genk
The outsider in Group E of the Champions League Genk faces Salzburg at the Luminus Arena in Genk. We are going to offer you our Champions League predictions for this fixture on Belgian soil.
For Genk this is a last opportunity to do something more significant in this group and to keep their chances of winning the third place. Right now the Belgians are 4th with just one point won, but being 3 points behind the third Salzburg. This is why a win here could be very important for the Belgians.
Genk won their only point in this group in the second round when they made a draw against Napoli at home. In the other three games they had they suffered defeats. So far Genk have conceded 12 goals.
Genk will want to avenge for the humilation they had to suffer in Salzburg in September. This is when they conceded a 2-6 defeat, being totally outplayed by the Austrian champions. You can be sure that Genk would like to forget what happened at the Red Bull Arena, but now they have to face the same team again.
Salzburg on the other hand are motivated to win because this would keep their chances for the second place and the 1/8-finals. If they win against Genk and in same time Liverpool beat Napoli at the Anfield, the Austrians are going to be just one point behind the Italians.
Despite of winning only against Genk in the first round, Salzburg are leaving good impression with their performance in the competition. They have scored 12 goals so far which makes them the team with the best attack in the group at the moment. Genk should be worried about this – they have a solid reason.
In our Champions League predictions we believe that Salzburg are favourites to win against Genk, even away from home. The Austrain team is better, but let’s see what they will do.
