Genk vs Club Brugge KV Prediction & Betting tips
The absolute top poster is on the program on Sunday. Leader Racing Genk defends a one-point lead over Club Brugge in its own Cristal Arena. Does Genk give a tap? Or is Club Brugge steaming further?
Genk is still the leader at the start of the game against the blue-black title competitor next Sunday. But the title ‘authoritarian leader’ does not fit, Genk turned out to be too vulnerable against a strong AA Gent defensive and it came too narrowly and with a great shiver. Fortunately there was Ruslan Malinovskyi, the match winner. But a hero who suddenly makes his team squint with a view to the match against Club.
Genk was lucky in his match against Ghent. The visitors had earned a penalty at the start of the match. They might even have received two. Genk created a lot of opportunities, but it also gave away a lot. A few minutes before time, Ghent scored the connection goal and it became a very exciting five minutes. The biggest disaster, however, was the red card for Malinovskyi.
The heavy suspension proposal of seven match days for Malinovskyi divides the football world. With high flaring emotions. Logical. If the Ukrainian midfielder with the fabulous kicking technique does not come into action this season, RC Genk can almost certainly forget the title. The verdict is only expected on Friday. The possible suspension is in any case a regrettable matter. Just as the dust around the transfer of Alejandro Pozuelo has settled, RC Genk gets a new blow in the face.
Club Brugge KV:
Whoever stops Club Brugge will be champion this season. Racing Genk is better off receiving the outgoing champion on Sunday, because after Ghent and Anderlecht, Standard now also had (more than) three goals. With a win on Genk, Club is already one on Palm Sunday. “We played football on a level that was close to perfection,” said Club coach Ivan Leko.
CluB Bruges receives the Rouches from Liège. They opted for a preserved layout and tried to limit the spaces. Nevertheless, the home team was immediately in the game and the ball went quickly from foot to foot. An unfortunate own goal was the start of a (small) goal festival. Club Brugge impressed with a large dose of self-confidence towards Genk.
Ten goals, seven goal scorers. But between the multiple-headed attack machine that is Club Brugge, there is one special duo: Hans Vanaken and Emmanuel Dennis. All seven goals from the Nigerian were assisted by the Red Devil. What a love. “We even laugh about it in the dressing room” Vanaken knew it: that of the seven goals that Emmanuel Dennis scored this season in all competitions together, he was introduced by his feet. “He is also doing great, isn’t it,” Vanaken immediately added. “Now hold seven games.”
