Genk vs Celta Vigo – Europa League
Thursday 20th April 20:05, Luminus Arena
Match Preview and Betting Tips
Genk have work to do if they are to turn this Europa League tie around, but two away goals in the 1st leg mean that the Belgians are still in with a big chance.
Celta would have been happy with their 3 goals scored at home during the 1st leg, but to concede 2 away goals could prove very costly in the grand scheme of things.
Both sides have been winning more often than anything else over recent weeks so we should be in for another great leg, and hopefully another batch of goals.
Genk lead the best of the rest in the bottom half of the Pro League, but they have relied on their good form in Europe to keep their fans happy in what has been a disappointing domestic season.
Celta are also enduring a frustrating season by their recent high standards, and currently sit 10th in the table and unlikely to be playing in Europe next season unless they win this competition.
I’ve gone with a score draw from this intriguing 2nd leg which would be more than enough to see the Spaniards through to the next round. Aspas has been one of Celta’s best performers this season and I’ve backed the striker to score the first goal on Thursday night.

These two teams met for the very first time earlier in the month, and what a 1st leg they produced.
The pair scored 5-goals between them, with the visitors from Belgium taking the lead after just 10 minutes through Boëtius. Celta responded in great fashion and drew level 5 minutes later through Danish winger Sisto and just 2 minutes after that Aspas put the hosts 2-1 up.
Before the half time whistle blew Celta found themselves 3-1 up through former Man City striker and Swedish international Guidetti. A goal from veteran Belgian attacker Buffel brought the visitors right back into this tie and helped set up an intriguing 2nd leg in Belgium.
