John van den Brom's side needed a 92nd minute equaliser from Theo Bongonda to cancel out Konstantinos Laifis' opener for Liege.

The draw extended Genk's unbeaten run in the league to 13 games, a run which saw them finish runners-up to Club Brugge last season

A midweek friendly this week saw a young Genk side lose 3-1 to RWDM.

Coach Alexander Blessin's side conceded after just seven minutes and shipped another two in the second-half.

It was a fourth defeat in the last six away games as Oostende's travel sickness continued into the new season.
