Genk hosts Liverpool in round 3 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, October 23rd at Luminus Arena (Genk)
After a devastating defeat in Salzburg, Genk managed to tune up for a home game with Napoli. The Bleu-Whites not only gained 1 point in that meeting but even managed to keep a clean sheet. Yes, the Belgians allowed the Neapolitans to create several good attempts, but in general, the defense played reliably. Genk conceded just two goals in the last four matches. At home, the Blue-Whites conceded only five goals in the last six games (for comparison, 13 goals were conceded in seven away matches). That is, Genk is capable of not conceding a whole bag of goals from Liverpool at home.

Manchester United managed to break Liverpool's 17-match winning streak in the Premier League. Actually, the misfire of the Reds was brewing. In recent games, Klopp's team gained 3 points with great difficulties. It scored a victorious goal to the net of Leicester from the penalty spot in the added time and hardly beat Sheffield away (1-0). Even in the match with Milton Keynes from the third division of England, the Reds scored only two goals. Finally, they equalized with Manchester United only in the 85th minute. Liverpool has a decline in shape, and Klopp will not be able to count on Salah who is injured.
In the last season, Liverpool unsuccessfully played in the Champions League away games ( it not only lost to Barcelona and PSG but even lost to Crvena Zvezda without scoring a goal. In the current Champions League draw, the Reds were already beaten by Napoli away (2-0). Generally, Liverpool scored just 11 goals in seven away games (1.57 goals per match, on average). In the last away matches, the Reds cracked the opponent’s defense only once. Genk coped with Napoli’s attack, and it is ready to hold back the onslaught of the Klopp team. The Belgians scored only two goals in the last three matches, and it means that Under 4.5 goals scored is an almost guaranteed event in the upcoming match. Still, the British are likely to win. The Reds worked reliably in defense in away games and conceded more than one goal only in Naples. Genk scored only eight goals in six home games. The Reds are quite capable of organizing a reliable defense because the hosts are experiencing problems in the attack. Therefore, I am waiting for the victory of Liverpool, but without hammering.
Prediction for the match: Liverpool to win and Under 4.5 goals scored
