Genk and Brugge will play in a derby on Friday, trying to get important points in Playoffs. Genk are already in second place, which entitles them to qualify for the Champions League, but Anderlecht and Anterpen are behind them by a point less.
Bruges is in first place with 8 points more than his opponent in this match and it seems that he will be able to fight for the lead and, accordingly, for the right to direct promotion to the Champions League. Genk is 2nd with 31 points, and has won 4 of its last 5 games. We can say that they made a good start in the playoffs with a 3: 2 victory over Antwerp with great merit on the left wing of Genk – Bologna, which scored again. Genk must try to take valuable points from the leader, and this is quite possible in view of the good form of the team and the fact that Bruges leads by a considerable margin. We will hardly see Bruges now in much in last games, but I guess both teams will play offensively and a goal match will be possible. The hosts will try to keep the second place and try to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Bruges are currently the leaders with 39 points, and the lead is solid for the playoffs, but this should not reassure them much. Brian Heinen is returning from injury, which is good news for them. In their last 5 matches Bruges have recorded 2 victories and it seems that they have slowed down, but at the same time there is a great result. In their last 2 games, the team has scored 6 goals.
Prediction – over 2.5 – 1.57 from 22bet
