Genk faces Sporting Charleroi
Genk faces Sporting Charleroi in a match from the 4th round of the Belgian First Division A. The game is going to be played on Sunday night at the Luminus Arena in the city of Genk. How these two teams started the new season in the Belgian league? Let’s take a look. Genk are currently 3rd in the league standings, after winning 7 points from its first three matches. Philippe Clement’s team enjoyed two wins over Lokeren and KV Oostende, while the match with Sint-Truiden ended with a draw. It’s impressive that in its three matches played so far, Genk scored 7 goals and conceded just one. This is telling us that they have a pretty solid defence at the moment. In their previous game, Genk celebrated a 2-0 win against KV Oostende away from home. Leandro Trossard opened the score with a penalty kick before Ruslan Malinovskiy made it 2-0 with a goal in the last few minutes of the match. Sporting Charleroi is currently 9th in the First Division A standings with 3 points won and a record of one win and two losses. They have won against AS Eupen but suffered defeats against Antwerp and Anderlecht. In its previous game, Sporting Charleroi hosted Anderlecht at home. Kaveh Rezaei opened the score for the home team, but Anderlecht’s Nany Dimata and Ivan Santini turned the tie around. It was a bad luck for Sporting because they clearly had the opportunity to do something more in this game. This is our look at the First Division A clash between Genk and Sporting Charleroi. Because of home ground advantage and performance so far, Genk are favourites to win and clinch their third win since the beginning of the season. Sporting Charleroi is clearly having more difficulties at the moment, so they are the underdogs in this clash.
