Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Genk will be looking to build on a 2-1 win over Gent when they host Eupen at their Luminus Arena on Friday evening. Genk made a slow start to the season, but their recent performances are surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of upcoming challenges. The good news for the hosts is that Japanese attacker Junya Ito return to the starting XI after serving his ban in the triumph over Gent.
Eupen, on the other hand, did well to beat Mouscron on the road in their last league match. The visitors were not in action at the weekend as their game against Mechelen was postponed, meaning that tired legs are unlikely to prove to be a big problem for them. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Genk have found their form of late. In their last meeting in the Jupiler League Genk defeated Eupen 2-1.
