Genk – Statistics & Current Form
How important is the Belgian champions the match against Red Bull Salzburg on Wednesday night? A Champions League game would be an absolute highlight for many players – currently has the Belgian champions but quite different problems due to a very weak season so far. For a few days, Hannes Wolf, former head coach at VfB Stuttgart and Hamburger SV under contract with the Belgians and should bring the fourfold champion back on track.
His debut last weekend failed. In the away game at Royal Excel Mouscron Genk had to settle for a 2-2 draw. After 16 league games in the Belgian league, the reigning champion only ranks eighth in the table. The gap to leaders Club Bruges is already a respectable 14 points. Together with the RSC Anderlecht Genk is currently fighting for the term “disappointment of the season”.
Realistic chances to hibernate internationally are no longer with the Belgians. Nevertheless, Hannes Wolf will certainly not take this game lightly, after all, it’s not just about high premiums for a win, but also about the fact that Wolf gets to know his team better under competitive conditions. Above all, it is important to strengthen the defensive, because in the last five international games Genk has received no fewer than 16 goals and scored even five hits.
The only point win the Belgians celebrated in the home game against SSC Napoli (0: 0). Thus, Genk continues to wait for the first victory of the club’s history in the Champions League. In 2002/03 the group phase ended with four draws and two defeats. In 2011/12 there were three draws (all at home) and three defeats. Given the formality and the fact that Genk has not yet won a Champions League game, we take despite attractive odds distance between Genk and Red Bull Salzburg by a prediction on the home side. No other team has played more games (16) in the premier class without celebrating a victory.
In terms of personnel, Hannes Wolf had to cope with the first setback last weekend. 22-year-old midfielder Bryan Heynen has suffered a torn ACL and will miss the Belgian top club for several months. Otherwise, Hannes Wolf will be able to rely on the proven forces.
Expected formation of Genk:
➤ Coucke – Dewaest, Cuesta, Lucumi – de Norre, Berge, Hrosovsky, Hagi, Maehle – Ito, Samatta

Red Bull Salzburg – Statistics & Current Form
Those who doubted whether Red Bull Salzburg lost anything in the UEFA Champions League were clearly challenged in their first matches. Not only because of the great victory in the first leg against the KRC Genk, but also in the games against the much higher ranked favorites Liverpool and SSC Napoli convinced Salzburg on full line. However, the very young team had to pay a little apprenticeship. Finally, Salzburg collected in these three games only a single counter.
With four points from four games, Salzburg still has the chance to reach the knockout round of the premier class, but it is no longer realistic to spend the winter in the Champions League. SSC Napoli are four points clear and have also lost the direct comparison with the Bulls. Despite already twelve goals scored in four games also prevented the opportunity utilization more counters. With these numbers, Genk and Red Bull Salzburg would already be justified in predicting a winning game.
Not to be denied, however, are the problems in the defensive area. While errors can often be eliminated in Austria, they are immediately punished at this level. In the four games the Austrian champions conceded ten goals. In comparison, there were only 14 goals conceded in 15 league games. Currently guarded with Carlos Miguel Coronel due to injuries even only the number three of the hierarchy housing. In the 1-1 draw against Naples, however, he became the “Man of the Match”.
The dress rehearsal before the game in Genk also went awry last weekend. Salzburg had to settle for underdog SKN Sankt Pölten at home with a 2: 2 draw. The marching-elf even lost a 2-0 lead. Accordingly, “not amused” was the US head coach and complained on Sky interview that such services are “not enough”.
Maybe a warning shot at the right time, because a defeat in Belgium on the last matchday would start the big shaking. Salzburg must also consolidate the defensive and can not only run forward blindly internationally. The defense does not yet have CL quality. Compared to Saturday bridal Erling Haaland will be available again after knee problems. Goalkeeper Cican Stankovic would probably be fit as well – though it is questionable if Marsch makes another exchange on the keeper position in such an important match.
Expected formation of Red Bull Salzburg:
➤ Carlos Miguel – Ulmer, Wöber, Onguene, Kristensen – Szoboszlai, Junuzovic, Mwepu, Ashimeru – Haaland, Daka
