Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Following four consecutive draws in the Jupiler League, Genk will be aiming to return to winning ways when they take on Mechelen on Matchday 11. Genk are seven points behind league leaders Royale Union SG, meaning that Sunday’s matinee is of big importance for the home side. As Wouter Vrancken has a luxury to field the best possible side against Mechelen, home win should definitely be considered.
De Kakkers, on the other hand, do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last four league matches. Mechelen are not regarded as good travellers and, taking everything into account, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Genk’s party at Cegeka Arena. As for the away team, Rafik Belghali continues to miss out with a hamstring problem, while Yonas Malede faces race against the clock to be fit for Sunday’s encounter.
