Reason for Liverpool vs Genk UEFA Champions League
The defending European champions are pushing for another victory in this competition, especially with things starting to get tight. The Reds are just three points ahead of an impressive Salzburg side, while Napoli lead the way. Liverpool can’t afford to drop any points when they host the bottom side.
Liverpool are again huge favourites to beat Genk in this UEFA Champions League (UCL) clash. Thoroughly enjoying Belgian opponents, the ‘Reds’ have a historical record of: W11, D2, L1 against teams from that nation in European competitions.
The Reds are yet to keep a clean sheet in this season’s competition, while none of their seven home games across all competitions this season have seen them keep a clean sheet. Given that run, it isn’t just the Reds who could drive up the scoreline here.
Liverpool are unbeaten in 23 European home matches, and have won eight of their last nine UCL matches at Anfield (W8, D1). Furthermore, the ‘Reds’ kept a clean sheet in six of the last seven matches in that run.
Liverpool face Manchester City at the weekend and Jurgen Klopp may rest players here as a result. Mohamed Salah has struggled with an ankle injury in the last few weeks and may not be risked.
Key Player: Sadio Mané (LIV) scored in the reverse fixture, and at Anfield alone, his last four strikes have come in the first half.

Genk are rooted to the bottom of the table and unlikely to move off it any time soon. The visitors shocked the competition with their 0-0 draw against Napoli but, otherwise, the Belgian side have been far too open during two heavy thumpings already in this group.
Belgian underdogs Genk are winless in 15 UCL group stage matches ahead of this daunting trip. Overall, Genk have managed to score at least one goal in 31 of their last 33 European matches, but the defence is a major concern, with the ‘Smurfs’ conceding two goals or more in three of their last four competitive matches.
The visitors head into this clash having lost 6-2 in their last away group game, a meeting with third-placed Salzburg. Now the Belgians are away to the European champions, with Liverpool looking to make it nine wins in 10 home Champions League games.
Genk have been behind at half-time in both of their UCL defeats so far. Underlining this trend, they have conceded the first goal in five of their last six competitive away matches, while shipping at least two goals before the break in three of their last five away from home.
Goalkeeper Danny Vukovic is still sidelined for Genk and is joined on the absentee list by left-back Jere Uronen. Look for 22-year-old Casper de Norre to deputise.
Key Player: Mbwana Samata (GEN) has a goal and a yellow card from three CL group stage matches so far. .
