Charleroi vs Genk by Neuro
Charleroi achieved great victory last weekend as they defeated Mons 3:2 away from their fans. It was much needed victory as they escaped from the very bottom of the standings and now can hope to build up on that performance and completely get away from the dangerous positions.
They have surprised Mons with great attacking tactics from the beginning of the game, also with aggression all over the pitch and high tempo that saw them leading 3:1 already in seventeen minute. Later on, they were able to keep the leading, putting the pressure at Mons, but also with a bit of luck as Mons failed to score from the penalty kick near the end of the full time whistle. That win was one of the rare positive things in the club, whose owners left the directors board and the club during last week.
Recently signed goalkeeper Sifakis will not be included in the squad for tonight's game as his paperwork is still not completed, while midfielder Leandro and striker Escoe are injured, neither of them with a important role this Summer.
Genk, on the other side, is coming from a 3:0 mid-week win over Videoton, at the start of the group phase of Europa League. Blue and Whites opened the scoring with an early goal in 22nd minute of the game and continued having full control over the opponents scoring two more in last twenty minutes of the match.
In the championship, Genk is currently placed at seventh position with only two wins and five draws from the beginning of the league. They are coming from a 1:1 draw at home against newly promoted Beveren. Although it was a disappointing result for them, the game itself wasn't bad at all as the hosts had the upper hand during the most of the game, especially in the second half they have made every effort to claim the win but failed to convert many chances to a 2:1 lead. Main defender Joneleit and goalkeeper Koteles remain out of the action due to injuries, while the left back Tshimanga will stay at the bench following a knock earned in game against Waregem two weeks earlier.
Genk has scored in every game they have played this season, on the other hand Charleroi has also started being effective. With the hosts announcing that they will play in a 4-3-3 formation and missing in the defense of Genk, goals look like written all over the game.
