Genk take on the visitors Lokomotiva in the second leg of Europa League qualifying matchup. The match will be played at Cristal Arena on Thursday, August 25th. The first leg ended with eventfully 2-2 draw.
Genk show positive results at the start of the season but the team still need to improve their performance as all their wins aren’t that confident as they should be. Genk have eliminated two mediocre team like Podgorica and Cork City but those wins didn’t come easy. Now Genk have troubles beating Croatian side with an average age of 22 years. The first leg in Croatian started off well for Belgian side but they couldn’t hold on to 2-0 lead and conceded two goals from Lokomotiva. However, Genk show much better results at home as they are on seven-match undefeated run in games at own stadium that lasted since 24th of April.

Lokomotiva have already reached much further stage that everyone expected. Young Croatian side eliminated one by one US Santa Coloma, Rovaniemi, and Vorskla. They also showed their character in home leg against Belgian side, coming from behind and taking 2-2 draw. The team is focused on Europa League only and suffered three defeats in a tow in domestic league. Seven away matches got the team two wins, two draws and three defeats.
Lokomotiva’s players are already heroes as they reached such late stage and managed to offer a battle to much stronger Genk. However, this story has small chances to continue after upcoming fixture in Belgium. Genk are clearly more skilled side and they won’t allow another slip in clash with the same opponents.
Prediction for the match: Genk to win.
