Genk to Win

Both Genk and Rapid Vienna have been going through many winless matches recently. The Smurfs are yet to win from the last five games, losing three of them. While Rapid Vienna have been able to register one win in that course along with two draws and two defeats. But Genk have done better in the Europa League and clipped Dinamo Zagreb to a draw in the last group stage meeting to stay in the race of the next round. The Blue-Whites also registered victory in the last two consecutive duels against the Green-whites. So we will back the home side to take the lead once again against the coming rivals.

Over 2.5 Goals

Although Genk didn’t get a single win in the last five games, yet regardless of the results, they have yielded seven goals in that course. They have scored eight goals in the previous four home games. On the other hand, Rapid Vienna have hit the target five times in their last five attempts. The recent scoring tendency of the teams is not that good but we expect a total of at least three goals in this game.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Genk have scored in all of the last four games and they hold the consistency of scoring in their home games as well. On the other hand, Hütteldorfer have also found the back of the net in four of their last five outings. Back in the H2Hs, the Blues-whites have scored in all duels, claiming two defeats. But the recent form of Genk’s defense might be helpful for the visitors as they have conceded goals in all of their recent matches. A BTTS outcome would be our next pick for this match.
