Full Time Result – Genk
The choice here is difficult – Genk has a 4-game losing streak coming into this match but the thing is – all of those matches were away from home. At their home ground, Genk is one of the strongest teams in the league while on the other side, Gent has been the absolute worst away team since the beginning of the league. They have lost 4 out of their 5 visits this season and in most matches, they didn't even score. We expect Genk to snatch the win here although we do not expect it to be with more than one goal difference.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
Although Gent's away performance has been terrible, we expect them to score on Sunday against Genk. This is just something normal for this particular derby – in almost all head-to-head matches, both teams score at least one goal and you never know what will happen until the final whistle. Despite the bad recent games, Genk has been incredible at home this year and they will certainly score at least once (although we expect at least 2 goals from the team).
Alternative Corners – Over 9
Teams in Belgium play some serious attacking football that often ends in loads of corners per match. In this particular derby, we have two teams that have been taking among the highest average corners per match. See the all-season averages for both teams: for Genk – 5.36 corners per match and for Gent – 7.18 corners per match. The low line of over 9 here should be covered without problems and there is always the possibility that even a single one of those teams can cover it by itself.
