20/1 Liverpool to score vs Genk
Genk v Liverpool betting preview
Genk have never conceded more than once in 7 UCL games at homeGenk are no easy mark at home. They have played seven previous home games in the Champions League group stage and drawn six, losing the other 1-0. Their last European outing in front of their own fans was against Napoli and ended 0-0. In the first group stage match, the Belgian were hammered 6-2 in Salzburg. Their domestic form has been far from convincing in their defence of the title. Genk were beaten by rivals Standard Liege at the weekend and they are now languishing 10 points off the lead in the Belgium Jupiler League.
The home side is likely to play with a similar or unchanged side following their 0-0 draw at home to Napoli on Matchday 2 a fortnight ago. Son of Gheorghe Hagi, Ianis Hagi will play as number ten behind the lone striker Mbwana Samatta. Theo Bongonda and Junya Ito are expected to complete the offensive midfield trio while Sander Berge and Patrik Hrosovsky will start in the middle of the park. Danny Vukovic and Neto Borges are both unavailable due to respective Achilles tendon and foot injuries.
Liverpool are on a run of 4 successive away defeats at this stage of the competitionLiverpool's 100% start to the Premier League season came to an end on Sunday. They salvaged a point with a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Manchester United and now they top the table with a 6 points advantage over Man City. The Reds' record in a group stage away games is underwhelming. Jurgen Klopp's men lost all three group-stage away games last season, including a 2-0 defeat at Red Star Belgrade, and began this pool with a 2-0 loss at Napoli. A 7-0 drubbing of Maribor in 2017 is their only win in their last 10 such games. After the loss in Naples, the Merseysiders bounced back to pick up three points from their next fixture, at home to Red Bull Salzburg (4-3).
Mo Salah missed Sunday's trip to Old Trafford with a ankle injury and is rated doubtful. Should the Egyptian fall short then he will likely be again replaced by Divock Origi as this game will come too soon for Xherdan Shaqiri. Trent Alexander-Arnold is another notable absentee for the visitors due to illness. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita and Adam Lallana are pushing for a start in midfield but the likes of James Milner, Fabinho and Georgino Wijnaldum should get the nod. Alisson will make his first Champions League appearance of the season after recovering from injury against United.
