Tuesday, December 3, starting at 19:45 pm, Antwerp will meet Genk in the Belgian Cup eight.
The home team comes after a 1-0 victory on home soil with Mechelen and is in 5th place in the domestic competition. It is worth noting that the band coached by L. Boloni has an almost perfect track in front of his fans where he recorded 7 victories and a draw in the first 8 games. Moreover, the Mbokani striker is in an impressive form, being the goalscorer of the championship with 13 successes recorded in 17 matches.
Also on Bosuilstadion, Antwerp passed Lokeren in the previous round of the Cup. It was 2-2 after the first 90 minutes, and 4-2 after the two halves of overtime.
After a poor start to the season, F. Mazzu was replaced by H. Wolf on November 19. He followed a 2-2 defeat at Mouscron, a 4-1 defeat on home soil with Salzburg and last weekend he suffered a new 2-1 defeat on his own in front of St. Truiden. It is worth noting that in this last game, I. Hagi was the starter, he scored a goal in the 9th minute, but the guests returned the score from the first half. Thus, Genk is without a victory of 7 official matches, and in the domestic competition is on 9, at 7 lengths playoff distance.
Antwerp is a more fit team, and in front of its supporters has an impressive track record. In the last 2 months, Gent and Club Brugge have lost from Bosuilstadion, while St. Liege got a draw, these being the only points lost by Boloni’s team on their own ground this internal season. On the other side, Genk is still not found and leaves with a second chance in this game.
PREDICTION: Both teams to score / YES @ 1,56
