Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Luminus Arena will host a highly-anticipated showdown between Genk and Charleroi. Genk have been playing below expectations at the start of the season, but it is still early for us to start drawing conclusions. De Smurfen aim to return to winning ways as soon as possible, and they should take advantage of Charleroi’s current form. The Black and Whites are still leading the chase for the Jupiler League title, but they do not seem to be at the top of their game ahead of the trip to Genk.
Following a 1-1 draw with Mouscron, Charleroi failed to impress in a 2-1 home loss to Standard Liege, and it is no wonder the odds for home win have been dropping. Seeing that Theo Bongonda returns to contention after serving his ban against Waasland-Beveren, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts.
