KRC Genk Vs KAA Gent
Genk smashed five past Gent in the last leg between the two sides and will probably feel as though it is job done.
Genk will be looking to make some serious waves in this years Europa League and will be hoping that they can collect a much needed away win in this make or break tie. The Belgians finished last season in fourth spot and will be hoping for a much better performance on all fronts this season. The side looked excellent in the group stages and finished on top of the tree, they then followed that up with a thumping 5-2 win over Gent in the first leg that will probably be enough for the side to get through to the next round.
Gent have been off the pace domestically this season and have failed to really hit the heights they would have expected of late. The team have struggled at both ends of the pitch in their previous few matches, failing to put teams to the sword whilst also managing to concede some rather sloppy goals. That poor domestic form has clearly been carried into the UEL this season, with the side on the wrong end of a 5-2 loss in a game they should really have put much more into. The team looked to be dead and buried, but you never know, anything could happen.
Gent will have spent the last week or so picking through the wreckage of their last meeting with Genk and wondering just how they managed to lose so badly. The side were 4-1 down at half time after putting in easily their worst 45 minute of football and will have been reeling from what was a truly dreadful first half display. However, they steadied the ship somewhat and managed to draw the second half 1-1, although it has to be said Genk took their foot off the pedal.
I will be going for the low scoring away win in this one. Genk look a million miles ahead of Gent this season and I see no reason why they will not go all out once again to beat the side. They will be keen to avoid an embarrassing comeback loss similar to the one suffered by PSG and as such should go strong with both their team selection and approach.
