Genk vs Fola – Europa League : Genk is a team that usually plays on the Europa League
Even on the last season, they’ve advanced the group stage where they had good teams on their group and still managed to reach the quarter-finals of this competition where they only lost to Celta de Vigo on a very close tie.
Genk has been making interesting campaigns and they are a competitive team.
The roster is interesting and balanced, and the team is confident, since they’ve had a very good pre-season where they’ve shown good accuracy during practically all the matches, scoring a lot of goals.
On this encounter, they know they will face a team that will play very defensively and it’s a good sign that they’ve scored a lot of goals on the latest preparation encounters.
Fola is a team from Luxembourg, they play on a league that’s practically amateur and that doesn’t have any expression.
They finished in 3rd place last season and therefore they earned the right of competing on this Europa League’s qualification stage.
Fola, on the previous round, has defeated Prishtina from Kosovo, on a tie that finished 0-0 on both legs and on penalties, this team from Luxembourg advanced.
Fola doesn’t have experience on these Europa League’s qualification stages and this is new for them and their players that are practically amateurs.
On this tie, they aren’t favourites and it is expected they will lose both matches.
Genk vs Fola – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Genk is an experienced team, that has been managing to get interesting results on the European competitions
and here I believe they will come in strong and very determined against an opponent that shouldn’t offer a lot of resistance and that shouldn’t bother them too much.
Genk has reached the quarter-finals on this competition last season and this year the objective is at least returning to the group stage.
This opponent is the ideal for them to gain confidence,
so I expect a strong Genk from the start and the goal should appear still during the first half, and therefore my bet will be on the Belgians to be in the lead at half-time against much weaker opponents.
