Genk hosts Servette at the Cegeka Arena in a second leg from the Champions League’s second round of qualifications. In the next few paragraphs we will show you our advanced football betting statistics and trends.
The tie is still wide open after a 1-1 draw in the first match in Switzerland. Toluwasale Arokodare opened the score for the Belgians at the Stade de Geneve, but in the second half Servette managed to score the important equaliser. Steve Roullier got an assist from Timothe Cognat and put the ball behind the goalkeeper Maarten Vandevoordt.
Now Genk are looking like favorites in the second leg as they are playing at home. It does not guarantee them the win, though – they still need to do the work on the pitch. And because of UEFA’s new rules this away goal is not giving them an advantage.
During the weekend Genk achieved a spectacular 4-0 win in the Belgian league. They paid a visit to RWDM and didn’t face any problems to secure the three points. Fadera, Heynen and Munoz scored in the first half while Carlos Cuesta finished the job with a 4th goal after the break.
Meanwhile Servette made a 2-2 draw against Zurich at home in a match from the second round of the Swiss Super League. Rene Weiler’s team was actually two goals behind in the scoreline, but in the second half Servette managed to score twice. Christian Bedia from a penalty kick and Derek Kutesa equalised for the hosts.
That’s our advanced football betting statistics and trends guide for the Champions League qualifying match between Genk and Servette on Wednesday. Probably the Belgians are favorites here, especially when playing at home. They could be hurt if they underestimate the Swiss team, though. Let’s see what’s going to happen at the Cegeka Arena in Genk.
