Mechelen vs Genk Prediction

Mechelen have started the year with a four-game unbeaten streak (three wins) in the league to boost their European aspirations. They sit directly behind their visitors and a win here would take them closer to the Championship playoff spots.

Genk, on the other hand, have made a poor start to 2024. The Blauw-Wit are winless in four matches they have played this year (two losses) which has seen them fall out of the top six. It is a far cry from their displays last season which saw them compete for the league crown until the final day of the campaign.

Both sides are attack-minded and we are backing the spoils to be shared in a high-scoring stalemate.

Prediction: Mechelen 2-2 Genk
