Liverpool are set to unleash their awesome attack on Genk in their UEFA Champions League clash at the Luminus Arena. The Reds are unbeaten in six matches across all competitions since their opening day defeat to Napoli. With Genk still seeking their first win the competition, this might be a day for the Liverpool frontline to profit.

Genk Form


Genk head into Wednesday’s clash off the back off a 1-0 defeat to Standard Liege in the Belgian First Division. They also played out a 0-0 draw at home against Napoli in their previous Champions League outing.

The result against Napoli means the Belgians are still seeking their first win in Group E having suffered a 6-2 defeat to Salzburg in their opening match. Felice Mazzu's men have also failed to score in two of their last three matches across all competitions and are expected to struggle against the defending champions.

Genk News


Mbwana Samatta should continue to lead the line for Genk having scored one of the team’s two Champions League goals this season. Theo Bongonda and Junya Ito have combined for just one goal in their last seven matches across all competitions, they should line  in attack.

Liverpool Form


Liverpool saw their winning run in the Premier League come to an end on Sunday following a 1-1 draw with Manchester United. They will be confident of bouncing back in the Champions League on Wednesday having claimed a 4-3 victory over Salzburg in their previous fixture.

The reigning champions have won six of their last eight matches in the competition stretching back to last season. Klopp’s men have shown plenty of attacking quality with 10 goals in their last four Champions League matches.
