Genk hosts Anderlecht in round 5 of Belgian Jupiler League. The match will be played on Friday, August 23rd at Luminus Arena (Genk)
Genk's start in the new season cannot be called successful but a failure either. The team is average and shows decent football sometimes. It gained two victories in four rounds. In the opening match, Kortrijk was beaten, and an unsuccessful streak was broken by a major away victory over Zulte-Waregem in the last round (4-0). I think that in the wake of this success, Genk is quite capable of gaining the upper hand over Anderlecht, which started in the new season terribly.

The start of Anderlecht can be called a real disaster. Multiple champion of the country is not a formidable force now, even in Belgium. In two of the four matches, the team looked faded (goalless draws) and lost the other two matches at all. Famous Anderlecht lost 1-2 to Ostende at home and was weaker than Kortrijk away. By the way, Genk beat this team at home.
Genk looks better than the opponent does at the start of the season. Yes, the team is not playing perfectly, but Anderlecht is simply terrible so far. Besides, the match will take place in Genk’s field. I think that the hosts have every chance of winning, taking into account the factor of the home field and the bad shape of the opponent. Moreover, Genk has consistently played better than Anderlecht in recent years if we look at head-to-head matches. In five last games, Genk won four times and played one draw. If we take matches in the field of Genk, the hosts were stronger in the two last ones - 3-0 and 1-0.
Prediction for the match: Genk to win
