Liverpool vs Genk Betting Tips and Predictions: Liverpool
Liverpool have been making hard work of their Premier League fixtures of late, having won four of their last five by just a single goal. Of their recent cup matches though, they’ve scored 13 goals and conceded nine. Of course, one of those matches was the 5-5 League Cup draw with Arsenal.
Jurgen Klopp’s side though will have to go for the win here and need to take the game seriously. They beat Genk 1-4 in the reverse fixture but the scoreline didn’t tell the whole story, Genk put up a good fight but the gulf in class saw Liverpool pull away as the game progressed.
In team news, Virgil van Dijk and Mo Salah returned to the starting XI against Aston Villa at the weekend and Klopp should play both of them again here to keep them matchfit for the upcoming City match. Joel Matip is out, while the likes of James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Divok Origi should start.
Liverpool vs Genk Betting Tips and Predictions: Genk
Genk sit rock bottom of Group E with just one point from their three Champions League matches so far. They’re a decent side back in Belgium but the gulf in class against Champions League teams has been obvious to see, they’ll learn a lot from the experience and will surely be back stronger in the future.
For now though it’s hard to see Genk getting anything from this match. They could make things difficult for the home side though who may be preoccupied with their aforementioned Premier League match against Man City at the weekend. Their secret weapon is Tanzanian striker Mbwana Samatta, who has six goals in 13 league matches and one in three in the CL, in last season’s Europa League he bagged nine in 12 for the Belgian side so he’ll be eager to keep that impressive run going.
