Antwerp vs Genk (By: FantaCalcio)
Second game for Genk and Antwerp in the playoffs I.
To be honest I find that the Belgian system is very unfair, Genk deserves to be champion after their excellent season so I hope they resist till the end.
After seeing their advance with Brugge dropping from 9 points to 4, they stayed mentaly strong and won easily their first game against Anderlecht 3-0.
The issue with Genk lately was their away games as they are without a win the last 3 games.
The real issue is that they are conceding too many goals, at least one goal in their last 5 away games (but scored at least one goal in each one of them).
Antwerp on the other side is not the team we saw in the begin of the season anymore.
They lost 5 of their last 7 league games and they owe their spot in playoff I only to their good begin of season.
I am not surprised to see them underperforming as their squad is full of ex "Belgian league stars" and they are starting to get tired of this season.
A good proof was their last game away to Standard where they couldn't hold their 0-1 advance and collapsed in the last 20 minutes conceding 3 goals.
Also 6 of the last 7 goals conceded by Antwerp came in the last 20 minutes of the game.
I think this might happen also today with Genk, which I also hope/ think will win the game.
