RSC Anderlecht vs KRC Genk / Jupiler League – This match of the penultimate round of Belgian Championship play-off is far more important for the visiting team. Anderlecht definitely disappointed this season and it would be a good achievement if they reach Europa League qualifiers, while Genk is just one step away from winning the title. If Genk wins in Brussels it would practically become the new champion. Genk lost in the previous round, while Anderlecht wasn’t defeated in two last rounds. Genk won all three head-to-head played this season so far.
RSC Anderlecht vs KRC Genk begins 16.05.2019 at 20:30 CET
Nothing happened this season as Anderlecht planned. They always plan to win Belgium titles and want to achieve something in European competitions but Anderlecht underperformed on all fronts. They didn’t pass the group phase of the Europa League and were eliminated early from the Belgium Cup, while in the league they did modestly and right now occupy the fifth place in the play-off. They won and drew in two previous rounds, so in the end they might reach Europa League qualifiers. Forward Santini is still in good form but the team’s second scorer Dimata is injured.
Probable lineups RSC Anderlecht: Didillon – Appiah, Sanneh, Bornauw, Cobbaut – Trebel, Kums – Najar, Verschaeren, Bolasie – Santini
Genk is just one step away from winning the title and it can be said that they deserve it. They spent almost the entire season at the first place in the table, or more precisely, they occupy the place since the ninth round of regular season. Genk had the first “match point” in the previous round. They played away with 2nd-placed Club Brugge and had managed to take an early lead where draw would meant that they won the title. However, they succumbed to the psychological pressure and lost by 3-2. This is their second “match point” and if they fail in Brussels they will have the third in the last round. The same team played in two previous rounds and we expect it again.
Probable lineups KRC Genk: Vukovic – Maehle, Dewaest, Aidoo, Uronen – Berge, Heynen – Ito, Malinovskyi, Trossard – Samatta
RSC Anderlecht vs KRC Genk PICK
Anderlecht fans would like to forget the season as soon as possible, while Genk is very close to win the title which it can practically verify in this match. We expect that Genk do exactly that with the fourth victory this season over the team from Brussels.
Pick: Genk wins
Odds: 2.05 at betway (down to 1.95 can be played)
