Note: These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing.

Rapid Vienna favourites to win

The hosts are our favourites to win this game. Notably, this will be the fifth meeting between Rapid Vienna and the Belgian side, Genk. The hosts bagged a 2-2 draw in the first home fixture against Genk and a 3-2 victory in the second home match back in September 2016. While both sides have 3W, 1D and 1L in the last five games, we think Rapid Vienna has the home advantage to win this match.

The visitors to open the scoring

Our second prediction is that the visitors should open the scoring in this game. Even though the hosts boast an undefeated record of three games in four meetings with Genk, they failed to score first in all the previous meetings. Our second tip backs Genk to open the scoring for the fifth time in this matchup.

Both teams to score

Our third pick is goals on both sides of the pitch. Even with a better record of 3W and 1L in this match, Rapid Vienna failed to keep a clean sheet in all the previous four encounters with KRC Genk.

Match Preview: Rapid Vienna Hosts Genk for Third Time in Europa League Fixture

The fifth encounter between Rapid Vienna and Genk is set to generate a lot of heat as both sides look to undo each other. Find out more in our match preview below.

Rapid Vienna

Rapid Vienna host KRC Genk for the third time. The hosts never lost in the previous two home fixtures against Genk. However, the stakes are high in this year’s tournament. The hosts are winless in their last two games and come to this game with a 2-1 away loss in the Austrian Bundesliga. The hosts average 2.2 goals in the last five games, a record that should earn them at least a goal in this fixture.

KRC Genk

Genk bagged a 2-2 draw on their first trip to Vienna but lost 3-2 on the second trip. However, the fact that the visitors have netted four goals in two trips to Vienna should motivate them to do even better on the third trip. Genk is currently 5th in the Belgian Pro League after six games. They have an impressive scoring record of 12 goals or an average of 2 goals in six League matches. With that, we expect them to score once again on the third trip. All the previous were in the Europa League and so is this fifth matchup.
