Genk and AS Eupen meet at Luminus Arena, in a match for the 11th round of the Pro League. In this stadium, the history of direct confrontations is favorable to the home team, which registers 3 wins and 1 draw in the last 4 matches. In fact, the last time these two teams played a match at this stadium was on 26‑12‑2019, in a Pro League match that ended in Genk winning (2‑1). The goals of the match were scored by P. Onuachu (60 ‘) and J. Ito (12’), for Genk, and J. Lazare (63 ‘), for AS Eupen. Despite being a match between 8th and 12th in the table, in reality it is a confrontation between the 10th classified in home games and the 9th as a visitor.
After 4 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses, the home team is currently in 8th position, with 16 points won. In their last match, they beat Gent away by (1‑2), after having won (2‑1) at home in the previous match, against Sporting Charleroi. This is a team little affected by the home factor, that is, they usually win as many points at home as away. In his last matches he scored 9 goals and suffered 7 at home, against 7 scored and 8 suffered as a visitor. In their last 5 home games for the championship, Genk won 2, drew 2 and lost 1, for which they won 8 points out of 15 possible. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 9 of the last 10 matches, so it has not presented great defensive strength, but its attack has scored regularly, since it has scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 17 of the last 20 matches have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 10 games in the competition, he conceded the first goal 6 times, but got the comeback in 3. There is 1 period that stands out in the last 5 home games for all competitions: he scored 3 of his 8 goals between minutes (61 ‘ ‑75 ‘).
Without experiencing a good moment of form at this start to the championship, Genk is in the middle of the qualifying table. His defensive system is very insufficient and this prevents him from evolving in the competition. However, he will play in his stadium in this match and must prevail offensively in search of the 3 points.
AS Eupen :
The visiting team is currently in 12th position, with 11 points won, after 2 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost at home to Cercle Brugge by (1‑2). In the last match, they won away against Excel Mouscron by (0‑2). This is a team that tends to achieve more positive results as a visitor than at home, since they have won 7 points away and 4 in their stadium, with 6 goals scored and 4 suffered as away, against 4 goals scored and 8 suffered at home. In their last 5 away matches for the championship, AS Eupen has recorded 1 win and 4 draws, for which they have won 7 points out of 15 possible.
For this competition, they have not lost any of the last 5 away matches. Their defense has not been very strong, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 9 matches, but their offense has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 9 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 11 of the last 16 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 9 games in this tournament, he suffered the first goal 4 times and never got the comeback.
The moment in which Eupen lives is similar to that of Genk, since it has oscillated too much between positive and negative results and is not well placed in the leaderboard. Thus, he is aware that he needs to conquer victory in this game, because his opponent is only one position behind in the table and with a defeat he can begin to complicate his life. For that, he must try to dominate the game and will seek to score from the first minutes.
