Beerschot VA vs Genk Prediction & Betting tips
On the fifth day of play in the Jupiler League, promoted Beerschot takes on the dethroned champions from Genk. The home side have so far not been unsettled by the increased demands and recorded three wins in a row at the start of the season. Last weekend, however, it was the first bankruptcy in the home game against Standard Liège.
Despite the clear result of 0: 3, the newcomer was on a par with the Walloon guests in terms of play – with the crucial exception of a large number of unused chances. For his part, Genk is having a hard time getting into the season and recently suffered a bankruptcy at the champion in Bruges. For Beerschot’s game against Genk, the tip includes a double chance in favor of the hosts.
The rise of the kickers from Antwerp is still a slight understatement: seven years ago the Flemings played fifth class, but since this season the team of coach Hernan Losado has been represented in the upper house.
On the other hand, at least the final upswing up to the top floor of Belgian football does not come as a complete surprise, since a Saudi prince has been a financially very potent partial owner for two years, who also calls Sheffield United his own. The start can be seen with nine points after four rounds as described.
Above all, Raphael Holzhauser turns up the offensive. The Austrian has scored three goals so far and presented two to the Purple White Army. He was involved in all but one goal! In view of his great form, Beerschot against Genk has the odds for his next goal celebration on top with value.
At the moment, the bookmaker also offers a lucrative Unibet bonus for new customers, which makes opening an account particularly advantageous. The mentioned short official path to the blades from the Premier League also led to a hopeful loan deal this week – that’s how Ismaila Colibaly is kicking at Beerschot from now on.
The youngster previously worked for Sarpsborg in the Norwegian elite series and quite a few clubs in Europe had the Malian talent high on their wish lists.
After the championship season in the previous year, the KRC only finished seventh when it was abandoned prematurely. For the team of coach Hannes Wolf it should go up again this year and at least participation in the final championship round is a minimum goal for the blue-whites.
After a first win at Waregem, this venture seemed to be on the right track. But the victory was deceptive and disillusionment has long spread again in Genk. The four-time champion of the country could not record another victory in the last three game rounds.
Admittedly, the tasks with Liège and the title holder from Bruges were difficult, but if you want to play up again, opponents of this caliber must of course also be defeated. Instead, they achieved a goalless draw against the Walloons and a 2-1 defeat against FCB before the international break.
The fans of the Smurfs have to accept, for better or worse, that there isn’t much left of the former class of the team. Numerous players were already given up last year, which is why the place in midfield was quite logical from this perspective. The last name on a list as long as it was painful was Mbwana Samata on attack.
The top scorer of 2018 is now playing at Aston Villa in the Premier League. However, the squad could be reinforced with Cyriel Dessers at least on the offensive before this season. The 25-year-old Belgian came from Heracles in the Dutch Eredivisie, where he secured the title of co-top scorer last season.
