  • Competition: Belgium - Jupiler Pro League
  • Date: Friday, 20th, January 2023
  • Kickoff: 19:45 UK / 20.45 CET
  • Venue: Kehrwegstadion (Eupen)

Eupen is playing its seventh consecutive campaign in the Jupiler Pro League this season. Their best position so far was 12th, which means that this team is mostly "spins" around the relegation zone. Last season, they finished just four points above it, and it is increasingly certain that this season too, they will lead the fight for survival in the company of the best. Unlike last, now three teams leave the league at the end of the season, and Eupen is currently only three points away from the first most threatened team.

Genk, the club that won the last title in 2019, is very well on its way to repeating the success of three seasons ago and returning the Jupiler Pro League title to the Luminus Arena. The popular "The Smurfs" are playing excellent in this year's edition of "JPL", which is best shown by the performance of only two defeats suffered from 21 games played. Genk, at this moment, has everything in their hands, as they are leading the table with 55 points won, which is even 10 points more than their first companion, the team Royale Union SG, with a match more.

Eupen vs Genk Betting Tips: AH2 (-1)

Genk hopes to repeat a similar success from early August when they demonstrated their power in front of their fans and convincingly "celebrated" against Eupen, with a result of 4-2.

Eupen opened the second part of the season with a victory over last-placed Seraing (1-0), but after that, a crisis followed in which the popular "Pandas" managed to grab only a point from three league games (D1, L2), so the match with Genk comes at the worst possible time.

The club from the province of Liege showed a solid "realization", scoring 27 goals in the current season. However, Eupen clearly lacks defensive consistency since their defense capitulated as many as 43 times, and according to that parameter only Oostende (44) is worse than them.

Also, the impression is that their home field looks more like a disadvantage than an advantage, which is confirmed by seven defeats from nine home games, so this is another reason why Genk is a clear favorite.

The Smurfs, meanwhile, are the leaders when looking at away performance. Wouter Vrancken's chosen have won 24 points from 9 away games and lost only two, while they achieved four triumphs from the last five visits.

Genk, quite simply, are enjoying a fantastic season. They have by far the best offensive line in the league which has found the back of the net 52 times this season and it's hard for Eupen (the second weakest defensive team) to stop Genk's attack which is razor sharp. All in all, we expect The Smurfs to add another three points and consolidate their leadership position.

Eupen Team News

Eupen will host the current leader without the services of the long-absent Amadou Keita (muscle injury), while the participation of Sibiry Keita and Tyreek Magee will be additionally assessed before the match.

With only one point won, coach Edward Still cannot be satisfied with the performance of his team, so he is forced to make a few changes to the starting line-up against Genk.

Wouter Vrancken will have bigger personnel problems, because he still cannot count on Matias Galarza (Hamstring injury), Luca Oyen (ACL Injury), Adnane Abid (ACL injury) and Kelvin John (Ankle injury).

During the winter transfer window, Genk managed to sign two new signings, very young and ambitious players. Anouar Ait El Hadj arrived from Anderlecht, while Yira Sor comes from SK Slavia Prague.
