Westerlo welcoming Genk in first match of 19th round in Belgium Jupiler league. Westerlo is last placed team at the table with 12 points from previous 18 rounds, they managed to celebrate only two times, suffered 10 defeats and got six draws. Most recently in previous round against Leuven on the road they suffered convincing defeat 5:1 while before that they managed to reach quarter finals of the cup by eliminating lower ranked Atwerp after penalties. They are in really bad form, in last seven rounds of the league are without victory and in those matches they got only two points. Westerlo ended previous season at 12th position at the table and they would be more than satisfied to repeat that result in this campaign. They must try to end those series of bad results but it will be very hard for them to achieve positive outcome here, so far they conceded almost amazing 40 goals and they must improve their defense at all costs. As for absent players, midfielders Trompet, Sakor and Lecomte will stay out of action due to injuries.
Genk on the other hand occupies solid 7th position, and for sure will give their best to reach at least 6th position and try to fight for the title. Previous season Genk also ended at 7th position and now must give their best to achieve better results in this campaign. Genk had a decent start of this season and they were in good form but later they dropped their form and suffered four convincing defeat and it seems that they are not completely back at the track, they are coming here after goalless draw against Aderlecht at home. Genk has positive record in duels against Westerlo, they managed to celebrate four times and suffered only one defeat. They are favorite here but also are not in their best shape and to achieve better results they must improve their goal scoring skills, so far they scored 20 while conceded 21 goal. They must improve their performances on the road since so far they celebrate only once away from home against Leuven 1:3. Midfielder Gorius and defender Hamalainen will miss this match due to injuries.
Westerlo seems almost desperate in this season, they are at last position in league and must improve their performances and try to consolidate their squad in order to get out of the relegation zone, while Genk had decent start of this campaign but in last few rounds they dropped their form and now will for sure give their best to earn all three points here, I expect interesting match and over 2.5 seems like a logical choice.
