Standard Liege vs Genk (By: Dajkula)
Standard welcomes Genk in the 4`th Championship round of the Belgium First Division. Standard has 33 points and 8 less than Genk. This will probably be their last chance to get into the championship title and they have to give it all today. With the support of the beautiful home crowd, they will again try to make this ground unpenetrable. Standard has 2-0-1 in the championship and they won over Antwerp and Gent while Brugge just demolished them in the last round with 4:0. Standard was never a good traveler but at home, they can take any team in the league. With just 1 loss so far they are the best home team of the league and they can`t be considered the underdog today, I feel.
Genk got a confidence-boosting win over Brugge at the weekend so it is probably not the best time to face them. Genk was, also, the best away team of the regular part of the season. They enhanced their lead to 4 points and in this match, I bet they would be happy with a draw. I say that because lately, they are far from convincing regarding their away matches. From the last 4 away matches, Genk has not won any as Brugge won with 3:1 and Antwerp with 1:0. They were good favorites against Antwerp but the failed completely with the hosts dominating for most of the match. With those two losses, they drew with Charleroi 1:1 and Waregem 3:3. So, I do fancy the chances of Standard in this one.
Especially since Genk has not won at this ground since 2012. They lost 9 of the last 11 @ the Stade Maurice Dufrasne.
Standard will be missing Oulare(att.3-1) while Genk is without Zebli.
Going with the home win.
