Genk vs Oostende Prediction & Betting tips
The brought back to life team on Genk awaits the players from the North Sea from Oostende at the end of the seventh game day in the Jupiler League. The home side got off to a mixed start to the season with just one win from their first five league games.
For those responsible for the association, the end of the flagpole in cooperation with Hannes Wolf was reached. The former HSV coach had to pack his bags after less than a year.
Under his successor Domenico Olivieri, a win against Mechelen was achieved on the last match day, although the KV was the slightly better team. With Oostende, the front table neighbor now looks over. Like the Smurfs, this shows a completely balanced record with two wins, two defeats and two draws.
For the match in the Luminus Arena between Genk and Oostende, the tip includes that the guests lose a maximum of one goal difference.
The blue-whites were still champions two years ago, but the sporting descent began last season. Almost all of the top players have been sold, which is why there isn’t much left of the quality of that time.
On the other hand, by Belgian standards, enormous sums of money could be made for players like Trossard or Berge from predominantly British clubs with a wallet that is known to be full. These were used, at least in part, for some interesting commitments.
Among other things, the 25-year-old Cyriel Dessers was signed by Heracles Almelo from the Dutch Eredivisie. The striker won the title of vice-top scorer last season and should also be able to start in the qualitatively comparable Jupiler League.
With two goals in five games, he has already indicated his potential. With three goals in the last two league games, his strike partner Onuachu from Nigeria is also getting better and better.
In Ostend, the fish rolls have been equally smaller for some time. The club rose to the Belgian House of Lords seven years ago and has since established itself among the top 5 of the Jupiler League. It was almost enough to participate in the Europa League once.
But these are long gone times. After the withdrawal of the most important financial sponsor Marc Coucke, who now owns the record champions RSC Anderlecht, things have become much quieter on the North Sea beach. At least that was the case until summer. Now the hope among the fans of the KVO has increased again.
The reason is the increasing fraction of German players. This expansion has the background that the coaching chair was recently occupied by the German Alexander Blessin. The 47-year-old was previously responsible for the RB Leipzig U19 team and now apparently lets his various contacts play.
With Nick Bätzner and Frederik Jäkel, two hopeful young German players were brought to Ostend. Both should take the next step in their development in the Belgian Jupiler League.
Blessin has evidently been able to anchor his playful philosophy better and better in his team. After two bankruptcies at the beginning, which were also conceded against the formally strong clubs Beerschot and leaders Charleroi, Oostende did not lose again. Rather, the “Kustboys” arrive with victories against Mechelen and Leuven.
In view of this increase in performance, the odds for hits on both sides in the upcoming match between Genk and Oostende are also equipped with value. At the moment, the bookmaker is also attracting new customers with a lucrative Betsson bonus.
