Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
All eyes will be on Cegeka Arena when Genk and Mechelen square off against each other in a highly-anticipated Jupiler League game. Genk aim to build on a routine 4-1 win over Beerschot VA, and the good news for the hosts is that important midfielder Kristian Thorstvedt is back from suspension. Joseph Paintsil is on international duty with Ghana, while all Chambaere, Jukleroed, Onuachu, and Ouattara Mohammed should miss out with injuries.
Mechelen, on the other hand, are one point clear of Genk in the Jupiler League standings. De Kakkers are eyeing a place in the Conference League playoffs as well, and given their attacking potential, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. Oum Gouet represents Cameroon at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, while all Engvall, Swers, and Dassy are out of contention with injuries.
