Standard Liege and Genk clash on Sunday lunchtime with both sides hoping to extend their unbeaten start to the new Pro League campaign. After two games, this weekend's hosts are one of only 3 teams (Beerschot and Charleroi) that remain perfect with successive victories.

As for Genk, they were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw with OH Leuven last weekend courtesy of Thomas Henry's late equaliser. Can they return to winning ways here against a side with genuine title ambitions?

Or do Standard make it three consecutive Pro League wins for the first time since 2018? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Standard Liege vs Genk Betting Tips

Between these two sides, they recorded a whopping 29 shots in their most recent Pro League fixture last weekend.

This is a side that finished last season in seventh place, five points adrift of Liege in the final Europa League qualification berth after 29 games. Head coach Hannes Wolf was left frustrated by his side's inefficiency and used all three substitutions to replace his forward line.

Cyriel Dessers, winger Theo Bongonda and former Cardiff creative midfielder Mats Moller Daehli all came off – then Henry equalised with five minutes to spare.

It was a cruel ending to a fixture they should have won, quite frankly. Nonetheless, the German will be expecting to avoid a repeat display here, against considerably tougher opposition in Liege this Sunday. Liege by contrast, recovered from a goal down to win 2-1 away at Waasland-Beveren on Monday evening.

In a second-half packed with action, quick-fire strikes by Selim Amallah and Samuel Bastien sealed an important comeback for Philippe Montanier's men — whose persistence under pressure was key. It's likely the pair will start again this weekend, in a game that could be decided by which team is more clinical with goalscoring opportunities.

Standard Liege vs Genk Correct Score Predictions

As mentioned, Liege are targeting three consecutive Pro League victories for the first time in two years. Genk are inconsistent, but the last time they went scoreless? December 22, losing 2-0 away at Anderlecht.
