Genk vs Besiktas Europa League

Genk is having a fantastic season at various levels both in the championship where he leads and appear to already take up candidacy for the title as in the Europa League where he is also leader of Group I with six points, two more than Malmö and Sarpsborg and three more than Besiktas, this after the last triumph in the competition that happened precisely in Turkey, by 4-2.

Moreover, in the previous days Genk beat Malmö at home 2-0 and was surprised out by Sarpsborg in Norway losing 3-1.

Last weekend, Genk conceded points to Club Brugge, with whom he drew a ball, keeping the advantage of three points for the rival and also second place.

Besiktas is well below expectations on all levels. In the Turkish Superliga, the group led by Senol Günes occupies a modest sixth place, six points behind, with only 18 points in 11 games.

In the Europa League, things are the same or worse, with Istanbul training to occupy even the last place in their group with only three points in three games from Sarpsborg’s 3-1 debut.
Having broken up a series of four unbeaten games with a 4-1 win at Rizespor for the championship, Besiktas lost again last Friday, this time away against leaders Basaksehir 1-0.

This is a game that can be decisive for the European future of Besiktas, which goes to Belgium under great pressure, to play in a stadium where Genk has not lost since last March, when he was eliminated from the Belgian Cup in his stronghold against Standard Liège.

If they need to attack in order to win the three points, Besiktas will have to be exposed defensively and take some risks, which can be fatal against a team like Genk, with the quality he has shown in the offensive process and especially in the counterattack, as proven in the first leg of the game in Istanbul, where the Belgians won 4-2.

To play at home and with the support of his fans, I believe that Genk will again give an air of his grace and unless it is up to date not in terms of finals will have plenty of opportunities to score during the 90 minutes and leave the Besiktas in rather delicate situation in this Europa League.
