Liverpool host Genk
Trying to achieve a third consecutive win in their group, the European champions Liverpool host Genk at the Anfield on Tuesday. Depending on the result in the match between Napoli and Salzburg, this game could allow the English team to top the group. Let’s see what’s going on in our Champions League predictions.
We all know that Liverpool started their Champions League campaign with a loss against Napoli, but in the next two games the Reds enjoyed two wins over Salzburg and Genk. In these two matches Jurgen Klopp’s boys scored 8 goals as well. Right now Liverpool are one point behind the leader Napoli, but this could change.
In the previous round of the group stage Liverpool visited Genk and enjoyed a 4-1 win. It was Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s night, who scored twice against the Belgians. Sadio Mane and Mo Salah also added for the visitors.
During the weekend Liverpool achieved their 10th win in the Premier League for the season. They played against Aston Villa and won the game with two late goals from Andrew Robertson and Sadio Mane.
Meanwhile Genk are 4th in Group E with just one point won so far. The Belgians managed to win a point during their home game against Napoli, but they also suffered two losses. There’s no doubt that the Belgian side is going to be an absolute underdog at the Anfield.
In their last game in the Belgian First Division A Genk suffered a defeat. Felice Mazzu’s team visited AS Eupen, but got beaten with 0-2. It was a bad game from the visitors and not a good signal before the trip to Liverpool.
During our Champions League predictions we are going to advice you to avoid looking for big surprises in this game between Liverpool and Genk. We don’t think there are going to be any. We think Klopp’s boys will do their job and win the three points here, maybe with a good advantage.
