Genk vs Gent Prediction & Betting tips
For Genk and Ghent, Play-off 1 is threatening to turn into a big sisser. Both can only win twice and they dangle all the way down. Who can take a step (you) to a European ticket?
KRC Genk congress weekend an excellent case if it won in Liege, because then the fourth place was a fact. But that turned out differently for the Limburgers, who had to drip with a defeat. As a result, they are in last place in PO1 and must be won against Ghent. In case of loss, it threatens to end in a minor as Genk is after Standard the most footballing team in the playoffs.
Genk had the difficult assignment last weekend to tackle Standard. In the opening phase Genk got the first giant chance. On a nicely carved cross from Nastic, Samatta smacked at the goalkeeper. Shortly thereafter, the Genk goalkeeper completely lost his shot at Carcela, which ended up in the middle of his goal. At the 2-0, the Rouches received extensive assistance from Aidoo, who first suffered a loss of ball and then unintentionally pushed the ball into an attacker’s feet. Then the feather was broken and it became a painful loss.
Striker Leandro Trossard was very disappointed. “I’m not happy with this match,” said the winger. “If you lose with these figures … This was unworthy of Genk. We now have two home matches against direct competitors. If we win, we will still participate in European football. We knew in advance that these two home matches would be crucial. ‘
AA Gent starts after the home defeat against Charleroi in a crisis event at the last triptych of Play-off 1. The pressure increases, also on trainer Yves Vanderhaeghe, because the goal of reaching European football is in danger. A shock effect is needed to turn the tide into the heavy-duty final hatch of Play-off 1. Because with less than a European ticket, the Ghent board is not satisfied. The impressive remonte during the regular competition can not make up for that. Assistant coach Bernd Thijs paid the toll and had to leave this week.
Genk had a home match against Charleroi last week. But what Ghent brought was far from sufficient. In the second half, the Buffalo’s had enough chances to justify a victory, but football was not good. Especially for rest. Ball losses, bad checks, no line at all. In the Ghelamco Arena you could even hear murmur, whistle and booing.
Birger Verstraete was hard but correct in his analysis. ‘Losses against Charleroi: that is unacceptable. Especially because we can do better. We have shown that in other matches. I also do not think we are in a period where it is all wrong or we do not work hard enough. That makes it worse: that we train very sharply and now lose. “The midfielder knows what to do to him and his teammates. ‘Especially do not seek excuses and dare to be honest. Our first half was not to see. ”
