Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
There will be fireworks when Genk and St Gilloise go head to head in the Jupiler League derby on Matchday 29. Genk have been scoring goals for fun of late, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Tanzania forward Mbwana Samatta, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late, while both Tolu Arokodare and Luca Oyen remain in the recovery room.
St. Gilloise, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 4-2 loss to Westerlo, with the team beating Eupen 2-1 in front of home fans. The visitors are eager to keep their title hopes alive, and given their attacking potential, we believe that punters from all around the world can find value in betting on both teams to score. As for the visiting side, Malta international Teddy Teuma limped off with injury in the last league match, with Oussama El Azzouzi likely to step up.
