Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Out-of-sorts Genk will be looking to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Club Brugge and Beerschot VA when they welcome Mechelen at their Luminus Arena. The Blauw-Wit have been playing below expectations at the start of the season, with the team already dropping ten points. Genk have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Mechelen, and we believe that they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course.
You should bear in mind, though, that both Carlos Eccehomo and Theo Bongonda are out of contention through suspension for the hosts. De Kakkers, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing each of their last three league fixtures. Even though the hosts head into the game with a severely-weakened squad, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the match.
