THE TEAM NEWS

KORTRIJK

  • Kortrijk are currently enjoying their best run of form in the 2019-20 Jupiler Pro League season with three wins in their last three matches and only one defeat in their last seven league fixtures.
  • They comfortably defeated lowly Oostende 3-0 away from home last Saturday with recent signing Terem Moffi getting his name on the scoresheet for the third time in his last four league matches.
  • With just four matches remaining in the regular season they are six points outside the top six, but a victory here against sixth-placed Genk would move them to within three points of their opponents so there is a huge incentive for Kortrijk in this match.

GENK

  • Genk disappointingly lost 3-1 at home against Standard Liege last Saturday and are now clinging on to their place in the top six by a single point ahead of Mechelen.
  • They threatened to come back from a 2-0 half-time deficit against Standard Liege when they pulled a goal back with just over five minutes to go, only then to concede a third goal as they were chasing an equaliser.
  • Central defender Sebastien Dewaest – their goalscorer against Liege – is missing from this match through suspension. They will also still be without Mats Moller Daehli due to his hamstring problem.

THE PREDICTION

In-form Kortrijk are finishing the regular season strongly and will hope to keep their top six hopes alive with a victory against Genk, who currently occupy sixth position in the table. Kortrijk will be a threat in front of goal having scored at least twice in each of their last four games with Nigerian striker Terem Moffi has scored three in four games and is likely to be a danger to a Genk backline who have looked uncertain in recent games. A home win is the prediction.
