THE PREDICTION

Genk were able to stabilise themselves in the Belgian pro League with a 1-2 win away at Sporting Charleroi last Friday, with their only other win in their last five matches coming in the last round of the Belgian Cup. They will be challenged throughout by a Mechelen side who up until very recently were one of the form sides in Belgium but a loss at KV Oostende on Saturday broke an eight-match unbeaten streak. A 0-0 draw back in January broke with tradition between these sides as the previous four matches between them saw over 2.5 goals scored with two wins for each side. The pattern there is that the home side has won this match-up in every meeting since 2014 and that should give Genk great confidence here just as Mechelen look to be going off the boil. Both teams to score in a victory for the hosts looks like a well-trodden path to follow here.
