Genk vs Shakhtar Donetsk

Genk vs Shakhtar Donetsk will take place at Luminus Arena.


They start their European obligations from the third qualifying round of the Champions League and aim to be in the groups of the tournament. Last year they participated in the fifth group of the Champions League but finished in 4th place with a draw and five defeats. Overall, they have completed 15 matches without a win in the top inter-club competition.

Their appearances within borders so far are not good. For the championship, last Friday they were defeated with 4-3 at home by Oostende. In the premiere, they were drawn away from home against Standard Liege. Earlier they lost 3-2 to Club Brugge for the Belgian Super Cup.

Like their current opponent, De Zerbi’s team begin their European obligations in the third qualifying round of the Champions League having many ambitions for a good course in the organization. Last year they finished third in the second group of the top inter-club competition and continued in the Europa League, where they were eliminated in the round of 16 by Roma.
This year they started the championship of Ukraine positively. In the premiere, they prevailed 2-1 at home to Inhulets. Last Friday, they prevailed 3-0 away from home to Lviv. Between the games with KRC Genk they will host Olexandriya.

Genk vs Shakhtar Donetsk prediction

KRC Genk have not yet found their good competitive rhythm and Shakhtar Donetsk are able to cause serious problems. Of course, there is a rematch but I estimate that the Ukrainian club will take the decisive qualifying step tonight.
