Tip Reasoning

Genk head into this weekends fixture against Cercle Brugge sitting top of the table with 35 points from their opening 15 games. They currently sit 4 points clear of nearest challengers Club Brugge in the title race. Genk head into this match in slightly poor form having drawn their last 2 games against Club Brugge and most recently away at Mouscron.

Cercle Brigge are sitting moderately mid table in 9th position with 19 points from their 15 league games this season. They head into this fixture full of confidence after picking up back to back wins against Mouscron and Waasland-Beveren both at home.

Genk are the only unbeaten left in the division as they have won 10 and drawn 5 of their 15 league games this season, however their home form isn’t as good as it could be. Genk have won 5 of their 7 home league games drawing the other 2 to Sint-Truiden and Club Brugge respectively. They are finding the net regularly as they have scored 15 times averaging 2.14 per game. Genk’s defence has been fairly solid conceding just 6 goals on home soil, averaging a goal against every 1.17 games.

Cercle Brugge are like Jekyll and Hyde when it comes to home and away form, they sit 4th in the home form table with 16 points from their 8 games however away from home its a different story entirely. Cercle Brugge are winless on the road, drawing 3 and losing 4 of their 7 away games this season. Their scoring form is no better, finding the net on just 3 occasions in their 7 away outings whilst their defence have conceded 12 goals in that time. After drawing 0-0 in their opening 2 away league games they have only drawn to Oostende whilst losing to Antwerp, Club Brugge, Anderlecht and Eupen.

Genk have been priced up as heavy favourites to win here and it’s not hard to see why, the home side are very solid on home soil whilst Cercle Brugge are simply awful on the road this season however their is a market that interests us and offers value. Cercle Brugge have have lost to nil against 2nd placed Club Brugge and 3rd placed Antwerp whilst Genk have won to nil in 2 of their last 4 games. With Cercle scoring in just 2 of their 7 away games we can’t see them finding the net here and backing Genk to win to nil looks the best bet here. Cercle have a problem defending against the top sides conceding 4 to both Club Brugge and Anderlecht and we can see them being hit for 4 here again, with 4-0 looking the most likely scoreline here.
