Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Sunday’s football game at Cegeka Arena pits together Genk and Seraing, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2022/2023 Jupiler League campaign. Genk are on the right track to regain the trophy, but Royale Union SG are still breathing down their neck. The league leaders were not in action at the weekend as their encounter with Eupen was canceled due to a snowfall, meaning that tired legs should not prove to be a big problem for the home side.
Both Matias Galarza and Luca Oyen should miss out with injuries, while Kelvin John and Adnane Abid are major doubts. The visitors, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with 15 points in their pocket, and given their poor start to 2023, we predict that the hosts are going to extend their winning run to four games. To make things even worse for the away side, midfielder Sami Lahssaini is banned for the matches.
Highlighted Player (Mbwana Samatta):
Born in Dar Es Salaam on December 23, 1992, Mbwana Samatta is a Tanzania striker who plays for Genk in the Belgian Jupiler League. Samatta began his youth career at African Lyon and he played his first game at senior level for Simba SC, the club from his homeland.
In 2011 he moved to TP Mazembe and after scoring 60 goals in 103 league games for the club, the Tanzania international signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Genk. On August 23, 2018 Samatta scored a hat-trick against Brondby in the Europa League.
Speaking of his international debut, Samatta made his Tanzania debut in March, 2011 in a 2-1 win over Central African Republic. It has to be noted that the Genk attacker was named African Player of the Year (based in Africa) in 2015. His main position is centre-forward, but is capable of playing as a winger as well. His contract with Genk should expire on June 30, 2020.
