Antwerp and Genk face at Bosuilstadion, in a match for the 25 th round of the 1st Klasse. In the last confrontation between these teams in this competition, on 30‑10‑2019, the final result was a draw by (2‑2). The history of direct matches played at this stadium favors the visiting team, which in the last 4 matches won 2, drew 1 and lost 1. However, in the last match at this stadium, by Beker van Belgie, on 03‑12‑2019, Antwerp won by (4‑3), in the tiebreak through penalties. The goals of the match were scored by S. Juklerød (30 ') and D. Mbokani (72' and 104 ') for Antwerp and by J. Mæhle (4'), W. Hoedt (81 'Own goal) and J. Ito (105 ') for Genk. Special attention is needed for the home / away condition, as both teams show significantly different results in their home and away matches.
After 13 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses, the home team is in 3rd position, having won 45 points. In the last match, they have lost in an away match against Club Brugge by (1‑0), after in the previous match they have won (2‑1) at home, against Zulte Waregem. This is a stronger team when they play in their stadium, as in the last 30 games they have recorded 5 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses as a visitor; against 9 wins and 6 draws at their stadium. In their last match, for Beker van Belgie, they won Kortrijk away by (0‑1).
In this competition, they haven't lost any of the last 11 matches at their stadium. His attack has scored regularly, since he managed to score in 8 of the last 10 games in this competition. This is a team that scores a few times first: they only opened the scoring in 6 of their last 24 games for the 1st Klasse, of those 6 they reached the break in advantage in 3 and won in the end of the 90 'in 4.
If it is stabilized in the zone that will lead to the final hexagonal, it is because of the good work that has been developed, but even so it will try to improve its numbers. Logically Antwerp will need to continue playing good football and achieving good results, that is, it needs to maintain regularity. That said, it is quite clear that you will try to score as many games as possible, no matter where you are playing. Therefore, we can expect a team attentive to the duel and trying to impose themselves, after all they want to leave the field with a positive score. In this match Daniel Opare and Matheus will be left out for being in the medical department.
After 11 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses, the visiting team is in 6th
position, having won 37 points. In the last match, they have won at home
against Charleroi by (1‑0), after in the previous match they have lost
(4‑1) an away match against Gent. This is a stronger team when playing
at their stadium, as in the last 30 games they have recorded 4 wins, 4
draws and 7 losses as a visitor; against 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses at
their stadium. In the league, Genk won 9 points out of 30 possible
points, after 2 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses in the last 10 home matches.
The team allowed goals to the opponent in 8 of the last 10 games, reason
why it has not presented great defensive solidity, but its attack has
scored regularly, since it managed to concretize in 8 of the last 10
games in this competition. In their away matches for this competition
there is a tendency for goals, since 8 out of 12 ended with Over 2.5
goals on the scoreboard. This is a team that scores a few times first.
In fact, he failed to open the scoring in any of the last 24 games in
the 1st Klasse.
The campaign that Genk has been presenting in the Belgian championship is not bad, but he knows he can show more than that. Today his goal is to establish himself in the zone that will lead to the final hexagonal, which will require good results. At home, winning is practically a must and away from your domains you should also seek points, as this is how a good campaign is made. Therefore, he hopes to show quality on the pitch and that at the end of the match he can celebrate a positive score. In this match Maarten Vandevoordt, Bryan Heynen and Danny Vukovic will be left out for being in the medical department.
