  • Competition: Jupiler Pro League

  • Venue: Cegeka Arena (Genk)

Genk fought to finish among the best four teams in the Jupiler League championship group, but eventually, they stayed short, so Domenico Oliveiri's team will have to fight with Gent for a place in the Conference League. Genk were close to securing the Europa League, but five losses in the last six matches ruined everything. Last weekend, Genk lost 2-0 on the road against Royale Union SG. The home side was much better as they tallied xG of 2.06, while guests finished with only 0.18, so Genk hardly could expect something more than a loss. 

Gent probably expected a better 2023/24 season, but they improved their impression in the Conference League group, where they finished first, so Hein Vanhaezebrouck's team will now have a chance to secure a Conference League spot if they win in Genk on Sunday afternoon. Gent won six of the last seven matches. In the previous game, they won 2-0 at home against St. Truiden. 

Genk vs Gent pick: Over 2.5 goals

Most Genk and Gent matches in previous months were high-scoring. Genk went over 2.5 goals in five of the last seven games, while Gent went over 2.5 goals in eight of the previous 11 matches. Over 2.5 goals should be the best bet for this tie.

Genk team news

Genk's Zakaria El Ouahdi got a red card in the previous round, so he will skip the game against Gent. The good news for Domenico Olivieri's team is that Carlos Cuesta and Mujaid Sadick could return after they served their yellow card suspension. Also, it is important to report that Luca Oyen will not play due to an ACL injury, while Bryan Heynen, Yira Sor, and Aziz Outtara Mohammed are questionable to play.
