Genk were always and should always be expected to be challenging at the very top-of-the-table. Under the management of Wouter Vrancken, they begin this weekend’s round of fixtures sitting just inside the top six and the end of season championship round playoff places after two defeats in their last three matches.

They come into this one on the back of a 2-1 loss to Fiorentina in the group stages of the UEFA Europa Conference League, in midweek. That European defeat means they have managed just one win in their last five matches across all competitions and the pressure is beginning to grow on the aforementioned Vrancken.


Coached by Hein Vanhaezebrouck, the attacking talent of Gent is arguably the best in the division with the likes of Hugo Cuypers and Gift Orban. Orban scored again in midweek to lift himself to the top of the UEFA Europa Conference League scoring charts as the visitors to Genk hammered Ukrainian Premier League side, Zorya Luhansk, by four goals to one the other day.

That means, with a record of seven victories and seven defeats in their opening 15 2023/24 Jupiler Pro League matches, Gent have suffered just two defeats in 27 matches across all competitions so far this season with one of those defeats coming away to Pogon Szczecin in UEFA Europa Conference League qualification when they had already won the first-leg by five goals to nil.



Wouter Vrancken’s Genk could name an unchanged eleven for this weekend’s game against Gent with a fully fit and available squad.

PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Vandevoordt; Munoz, Sadick, McKenzie, Kayembe; Heynen, Galarza; Paintsil, El Khannouss, Bonsu Baah; Arokodare




Gent have only one injury concern for this weekend with Laurent Depoitre remaining a doubt but they could name an unchanged eleven for this one.

PREDICTED XI (3-4-2-1): Roef; Kandouss, Watanabe, Torunarigha; Samoise, Kums, de Sart, Brown; Tissoudali, Hong; Cuypers


QUESTIONABLE: Depoitre (Injured)


These are two of the stronger sides in Belgium’s top-flight but it is perhaps a bit of a mis-match, given the respective form of the teams. Genk, as mentioned, are in danger of slipping out of the top six which would be a desperate situation if they headed into the winter break in that position. Gent, on the other hand, are performing extremely well as they attempt to chase down Anderlecht and Union SG at the top-of-the-table. The visitors, who appear extremely difficult to beat, are slight favourites for this one.
