The Belgian Championship round 22 program starts on Friday, we offer our exclusive Eupen-Genk match prediction.
Eupen tries to stay in the strongest division
Eupen’s current championship is progressing without success, the club is 15th in the table, just one point behind the relegation zone. In the last round, the team narrowly avoided defeat to Heverly Louvain, leveling the score in injury time – 1: 1. Eupen no longer wins three games in a row, which has a negative effect on the confidence of the players. Recall that the club is owned by the same owners as PSG, so there are definitely resources to avoid relegation. Three players will miss the upcoming duel with the leader.
Genk is racing for the championship
Genk is doing very well, the club took the lead in the Belgian championship, ahead of the nearest chaser by as much as 9 points. In such scenarios, it is necessary to fight only for the championship. In the final round of the Masters, they narrowly beat Westerlo away 3-2 for their third successive win. Due to injuries, three players will not be able to enter the field.
Confrontations between these clubs often turn out to be fruitful, as was the case in the first round when Genk won 4-2 at home.

The bookmakers’ statements are quite predictable, there is one of the outsiders against the leader, so the visitors have a big advantage here. Eupen has to stick to points, regardless of the opponent’s status, so we think it’s acceptable to bet on over 2.5 goals, it shouldn’t be boring.
