Charleroi vs Genk by Gilles
Charleroi vs. Genk in the quarter final of the Belgian Cup at Stade du Pays de Charleroi.
In the previous round Charleroi defeated Anderlecht with penalties (FT:2-2, AP:7-5) . On Friday Charleroi played a 2-2 draw at Eupen in the Pro League. With major teams as Anderlecht, Brugge and Standard out of the Cup, Charleroi is a big candidate to take the Cup this season, standing on a 6th palce in the Pro League at the moment. For the club and coach F. Mazzu the Belgian Cup is a big objective this season.
Because the game in the Europa League was delayed on Thursday at Sassuolo, the Genk players did get a few days extra rest. Namely, the Belgian Football Union decided to play the Pro League match Genk vs. Waasland-Beveren, normally planned for Sunday, on another date. In the previous round of the Cup, Genk defeated Waasland-Beveren 1-3. On Friday noon, Genk won 0-2 at Sassuolo and as such became winner of their group in the Europa League.
Selection Charleroi: Penneteau, Mandanda, Baume,N’Ganga, Willems, Poulain, Dessoleil, Marinos, Bedia, Bakar, Boulenger, Mata, Baby, Marcq, Fall, Hendrickx, Diandy, Benavente, Pollet, Tainmont, Zajkov and Van Hecke. Out: Martos(18/0 d), Saglik (4/0 m) and Stevance (0/0 f). Not selected: Ninis (13/2 m)
Selection Genk: Bizot, Brabec, Colley, Walsh, Dewaest, Karelis, Kumordzi, Susic, Trossard, Wouters, Buffel, Sabak, Uronen, Pozuelo, Ndidi, Jackers, Bailey, Castagne, Samatta and Schevenels. Out: Heynen (14/0 m).
Last season Genk defeated Charleroi with penalties in the 1/8 final of the Belgian Cup at Luminus Arena, Genk (FT:1-1, AP:6-5). Genk has a good home reputation but has also trouble winning away matches. However, last 2 matches away Genk did manage to win (see previous, Sassulo and Waasland-Beveren). At Charleroi, Genk did not win a match in the last 4 seasons. Therefor I think Genk awaits a difficult game at Mambourg. Given the objective Charleroi has made of the Cup, the difficulty Genk has on away matches and especially the bad statistics Genk has at Charleroi, I back Charleroi to advance to the semi final in the Belgian Cup.
