Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Genk will look to build on a 3-1 win over Standard Liege when they take on Eupen in the Jupiler League round 3. Genk quickly bounced back from the 3-2 loss to Club Brugge, with the team regaining the confidence, but they do not want to stop now. Summer signing Cyriel Dessers has already started paying off, and we predict that the Nigeria attacker, who scored a brace at the weekend, will make life difficult for the opposition back-line.
Luca Oyen remains in the treatment room, while all Vic Chambaere, Adnane Abid, Mujaid Sadick, and Paul Onuachu are major doubts. Against all odds, Eupen defeated reigning champions Club Brugge on Matchday 2 to climb to 10th place in the standings. The Pandas, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Genk’s party at Cegeka Arena. As for the visiting side, Gary Magnee serves the first of his two-game ban.
