A home win is expected from this fixture if the league table is anything to judge by. The Genk fans are optimistic that the difference between 3rd and Sint-Truiden's 14th place in the table will show on the pitch.

Insights:
  • Genk have the most dropped points from leading position (21) in Pro League

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.

12-12-19 (wins/draws/losses). These are the numbers for Sint-Truiden when playing away games on grass, which is not the surface they have on their own home stadium (which has artifical turf). Their goal statistics from those 43 matches are 49-73 (scored/conceded).

Sint-Truiden are still fighting for the big positions at the top of the table.

Sint-Truiden form and stats

Playing away, Sint-Truiden have won 4 games, drawn 5 and suffered 7 defeats in the Pro League this season.

It's the second away game in a row for Sint-Truiden, but there's smiles all around after the 4-2 victory versus Waasland-Beveren (placed 18th) in the Pro League last time out. Prior to that match, a home win 2-1 against Mechelen.

As you can tell from the result, the match against Waasland-Beveren was as crazy as a clown in a village circus. Great fun for the neutral supporter with 6 goals, will the fun continue today?

Sint-Truiden find the net regularly in their away games. 21 goals from 16 away fixtures in the league. Sint-Truiden struggle to build an impenetrable defensive wall in away matches with a total of 28 goals conceded from these games. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only 2 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.
