KRC Genk is hosting Club Brugge at Luminus Arena in a derby match of round 4 in the Belgian Pro League.
Genk is still undefeated in the Pro League this season, and they are in 6th place in the standings with 5 points, 3 scored goals, and 2 conceded goals. In their last Pro League match against Standard on the road, Genk has had 53% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, and 5 corner kicks. Genk was a slightly better team in this match, but unfortunately for them, they weren’t able to score a goal. The final score in this match was 0-0. Ito, Onuachu, and Desseres have all scored 1 goal each for Genk so far this season. Heynen, Kouassi, Zhegrova, and Siegers are all injured, and none of them will be in the lineup for this match. Genk ended the last season in 7th place, outside the Europa League and the Champions League zone, but that might be good for Genk because they can focus only on Pro League and getting back on top of the standings. Genk has started the season well, but they are struggling a bit in the attacking end, and if they want to stay close to the top, Genk has to improve their goalscoring form.
Club Brugge hasn’t been playing well this season, and they have only 1 win from their last 3 games in the Pro League. During this stretch, Brugge has conceded only 2 goals, while scoring 4 goals. Before the season started, Brugge was playing against Royal Antwerp in the Belgian Cup finals, and they lost 0-1. With only 3 points, Club Brugge is in 12th place in the standings. Club Brugge has won the title last season with 70 points, 58 scored goals, and only 14 conceded goals, which made them the best defensive team in the league. In their latest Pro League match against Beerschot at home, Club Brugge has had 63% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, and 5 corner kicks. Brugge was the better team in this match but they were struggling in the attacking end. Club Brugge ended up losing this match 0-1. Diatta has scored 2 goals for Brugge so far this season, while Badji and Vormer added 1 goal each. Mitrovic is the only injured player for Club Brugge, and his return date is still far away. Club Brugge hasn’t started the season well, but they are still one of the best teams in Belgium, and they still have time to turn things around and get closer to the top.
The home team was dominant in this matchup, and Genk is in slightly better form than Club Brugge. This is one of the biggest derbies in Belgium, and goals were pretty consistent when these two teams meet. I think this one could go either way, which is why I will stick to goals in this match.
