Genk vs Antwerp Prediction & Betting tips
On Sunday, two more teams from the top six will play against each other. Leider Racing Genk receives Antwerp. Can the home team repack after the defeat against Club Brugge? Or are the visitors after their zero at six?
The departure of Alejandro Pozuelo is still imminent. Philippe Clement takes the gauntlet to find solutions, ‘a challenge’, but he will have seen just like everyone how Olympia Racing Genk was a helpless prey without ‘Pozo’. It is not the first time this season that Racing Genk remains without Pozuelo. In the same way, it was eliminated in the cup match in Union. Pozuelo makes the puppets dance around him. In his absence, you get the impression that Genk becomes both football-technical and mentally vulnerable.
Genk had opted for a top match for the (bad) field of Club Brugge. Club Brugge was very good in the first place. The players of Genk never got the time to think. The few times that Genk got the ball in front, Marcus Ingvartsen lost every game, and made the composition of the Genk midfield that the team could not put in the same way as Club. Earned defeat but no man overboard for the limburgers.
Clement does not shy away from his responsibility: ‘It is my job to find solutions once without’ Pozo ‘. I admit: it is a challenge. The same scenario would happen, Club should be without Hans Vanaken and Standard without Mehdi Carcela “, Clement looks for mitigating circumstances, he should look at it positively: without ‘Pozo’ or if necessary with a disgruntled ‘Pozo’ champion, his daring will only enlarge.
Antwerp has its home matches against the G5 clubs behind. The harvest is not famous with three out of fifteen draws against Club Brugge (1-1), AA Gent (2-2) and Standard (1-1) and defeats against RC Genk (2-4) and Anderlecht (0-1 ). In comparison with last season that is a point less after draws against Anderlecht (0-0), Standard (0-0), Club Brugge (2-2) and AA Gent (1-1) and a loss against RC Genk (3 -5). Nevertheless, the interim balance is better with 45 points and a fourth place now compared to 37 points and a sixth place last season.
Antwerp got Anderlecht on the floor on the previous matchday. On paper a second fun duel on Super Sunday. But the expectations were not met. The spectators were seen a lot of battle but there were hardly any goal attempts. Antwerp seemed to take the lead, but it did not get a penalty right after intervention by the VAR. The game seemed to end in a draw until the home team got the lid on the nose in injury time.
He thought long before he started his analysis, but Laszlo Bölöni reacted remarkably positively. ‘I saw a good match. Both teams belong in play-off 1. I hate to lose, but we did not make the difference ourselves in the first half and the second was the same. A tie might have been closer to the truth, but there is no truth in football. One point could have been good for us.
