Belgian champion Genk receives the British vice and Champions League defending champion from Liverpool. The Smurfs, of course, come as a blatant outsider in the encounter.

Today’s Betting Tips Genk vs Liverpool
After setting a bad 2: 6 clap in Salzburg for the Flemings, the KRC was able to rehabilitate. The draw was not even undeserved. In fact, the defeat at Red Bull Salzburg seems to have been a salutary shock.
Since then, the team has mostly won in the Jupiler League and reached the next round in their home cup. Went to the start of the season on the first four matchdays still half of all competitive games lost, so has the newly ragged team now solidified, even if recently a setback by a 0: 1 at Standard Liege came about.
In the upcoming match, we trust the hosts at least one goal, the Genk against Liverpool Tipp nevertheless includes an away win of the Liverpooler. The Klopp team must not afford a slip-up after the kick-off.
Even with this seemingly easy task, a highly concentrated performance of the champion can be expected. This is supported by the experience of the previous game against Salzburg, which was won only just 4: 3 and in which a 3-0 lead meanwhile due to poor seriousness in the playful appearance of the hand was given out.
Genk – Statistics & Current Form
In the group Genk is not only against Liverpool, but basically in every game the underdog. The KRC had to pull in the summer a variety of supports the championship team, which has lost a lot of individual quality.
To make matters worse, that even the successful coach Clement left the club in the direction of Vice-Club Club Bruges. The starting conditions for the new season were thus extremely difficult. But slowly the newly assembled Genker Elf is found. In addition, the recovery of Theo Bongonda plays a positive role in this process.
The new signing of Zulte-Waregem now relieves top striker Mbwana Samata, who has played badly over the past few weeks. After his double entry for his home country of Tanzania in the World Cup qualifying at the beginning of last month Samata met only once in the match in Salzburg. On top, another newcomer gets better and better:
We are talking about Paul Onuachu, who is now vehemently advocating a start-up mission. The Nigerian was signed in the summer by FC Midtjylland from the Danish Superliga. Based on his previous performances, the Flemings have landed an absolute stroke of luck with the 25-year-old.
So far, the attacker was only in four games at least half an hour on the court, but always scored the national team of his country. Most recently in a 2-1 home win against Royal Excel Mouscron. Here Onuachu scored after his substitution even his first double and secured single-handedly the success.
