Genk take on the visitors Lech Poznan at the Luminus Arena in the first leg match of UEFA Europa League third qualification round. The match will be played in the eponymous city Genk on Thursday, August 9th.
Genk have been giving high hopes to their fans lately, they are likely become one of the best clubs in Belgium and compete for the highest places pretty soon. There are a lot of high class players in the squad of the Smurfen who can make the result by themselves even on the international scene. The team and its coach Philippe Clement have set the goal to go through to the group stage of the Europa League this season and the chance of actually doing it is pretty high because the Racing have been playing really good lately. In their last three home matches Genk beat Fola with a 5-0 score, Olympiacos with a 4-0 score and drew against Sint-Truiden with a 0-0 score.

Lech Poznan have been showing high class performances in the Ekstraklasa lately but they haven`t been able to show much on the European scene. There are very few star players in the squad of the Railwaymen but the team has been playing really good as a unit which has been a bliss for their fans. The team is likely to get knocked out of the tournament before the group stage but the players have at least a chance to try. In their last three matches Lech Poznan beat Cracovia with a 2-0 score, Shakhtyor Soligorsk with a 3-1 score and Slask with a 1-0 score.
Genk and Lech Poznan have never faced each other before. Now it`s hard to pick a favourite, both teams have been looking equal lately. However, the Smurfen will have a home crowd advantage so they are likely to win in the first leg match.
Prediction for the match: Genk to win with -1.0 handicap.
