Gent Win

Gent will be on a high after just registering the cup success over Anderlecht. Even though Genk come into the game on the back of two wins and two clean sheets, the results have been against mediocre opponents. Seraing and Eupen have been struggling with the relegation zone throughout the campaign and results against these clubs may not be a true reflection of the club’s stature to get results in this game.

Total goals over 2.5

There have been more than 2.5 goals in three out of the last five matches for Genk, who have conceded a staggeringly high number of goals when they are away from home. Gent have been able to get four goals without a response from Genk in the last two meetings, but this game will feature goals at both ends to add up to over 2.5 goals.

Both teams to score – yes

Even though Gent have managed back-to-back clean sheets against Genk, it will be a tough task for Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s men to keep up this good form. Bernd Storck does have a very good record against Gent with three wins in four games.

Gent vs Genk: Match Preview and Team News


Gent have had a good run against Genk in recent years to feed very confident about starting the play-off stages in positive fashion. Genk have been able to maintain momentum in the run-up to the play-off places and the victory over Anderlecht in the cup final will be an additional motivation. Gianni Bruno is the only player unavailable due to an injury.


Gent will be hopeful of overturning the away form at just the crucial stage in the season. The recent wins over Seraing and Eupen would have done enough to just improve the club’s form and confidence levels. Junya Ito is suspended for the game while Vic Chambaere is out with a back problem.
