Genk VS Beşiktaş

Genk and Beşiktaş meet at Cristal Arena, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (Group Stage). Beşiktaş registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

Analysis of Genk

The home team is currently in the 1st position, with 6 points won, after 2 wins and 1 loss. In the penultimate round, they have lost an away match against Sarpsborg 08 by (3‑1). In the last round, they have won an away match against Beşiktaş by (2‑4). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 12 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in away matches, with 57 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 13 wins and 2 draws at their stadium, with 48 goals scored and 11 conceded. They come to this match after a home draw against Club Brugge by (1‑1). Genk registers 4 wins in the last 4 home matches for the UEFA Europa League.

They have won the last 4 home matches for this competition. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in all of the last 9 matches for this competition. They have been able to score first and have done so in 8 of the last 9 matches for the UEFA Europa League, they have reached half‑time in advantage in all of those 8 matches and have always held on to the lead until the end of the 90'.

Genk is a Belgian team with three titles from the 1e Klasse (Belgian 1st Division Championship), the last one won in 2010/11, as well as four Beker van Belgie titles and a Belgian Super Cup.  The team eliminated three opponents in the qualifying stages of the Europa League in the current season: Fola Esch, Lech Poznan and Brondby. Meanwhile in the group stage, Genk conquered two wins in the first three rounds and thus occupies the top spot in Group I, two points ahead of the second places. In the last five games that Genk played at home, counting several competitions, were scored two or more goals and three of them were scored more than 2.5 goals. We believe Genk will be able to make one more a very busy game.

Confirmed Lineup: D. Vuković, S. Dewaest, J. Mæhle, J. Aidoo, J. Uronen, R. Malinovskiy, Pozuelo, B. Heynen, M. Samatta, J. Paintsil, D. N'Dongala.

Analysis of Beşiktaş

The away team is currently in the 4th position, with 3 points won, after 1 win and 2 losses. In the penultimate round, they have lost an away match against Malmö FF by (2‑0). In the last round, they have lost a home match against Genk by (2‑4). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 24 conceded; against 11 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 38 goals scored and 16 conceded. In their last match, for the Süper Lig, they got an away loss against İstanbul Başakşehir by (1‑0). In the last 4 UEFA Europa League away matches Beşiktaş has a record of 1 win, 1 draw and 2 losses. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 9 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 24 of the last 28 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In 9 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 13 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 6 of their 15 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Besiktas is a Turkish team with thirteen Super League titles, the last one conquered in 2016/17, and the team has dozens of National Cups, so it is a great Turkish football team. For the Europa League, the team comes in the Group I's last place. The current situation comes after having won the first home game against Sarpsborg (by 3-1) and two defeats, one away from home to Malmo (by 2-0) and another home defeat to Genk (by 2-4), which will be its next opponent. Besiktas will face Genk and should again provide another multi-goal game.

Confirmed Lineup: T. Zengin, Pepe, D. Toköz, D. Vida, C. Erkin, G. Medel, R. Babel, O. Özyakup, Ricardo Quaresma, J. Lens, N. Uysal.

Betting suggestion:

In this match between Genk and Besiktas, we believe we will have another match with several goals, because in the last game between the teams at Besiktas's stadium, we had a match with 6 goals. Now, this pattern should be repeated at Genk's stadium. Therefore, out bet for this game will be "Over 2 goals", so we still have the chance of the bet return if the game has exactly 2 goals scored.
