Pulling off yet another remarkable great escape at Villa Park over the weekend, Liverpool will now turn their attention back to Champions League qualification when they welcome Genk to Anfield on Tuesday night.
Enjoying a four-match winning run across all competitions and the only Premier League outfit to still boast an unbeaten record heading into November, the Reds have also enjoyed a recent free-scoring European run.
While Jurgen Klopp’s side might be starting to shine in Group E, Genk find themselves enduring an extended rut and will unsurprisingly face yet another extremely tough test on foreign soil.
Suffering a 2-0 defeat against AS Eupen in Belgium’s top-tier over the weekend, Felice Mazzù’s men have won just one of their last five matches across all competitions and suffered a hammering when they last met Liverpool a fortnight ago.
Shipping four against the Premier League contenders at the Luminus Arena in their last Group E matchup, you might be interested to know that Liverpool can be found at 11/10 with Bet365 to bag over 3.5 goals in midweek.
Who can stop Liverpool?
Despite trailing 1-0 at Villa Park over the weekend, two late strikes from Andrew Robertson and Sadio Mane secured another dramatic victory and have extended on what is becoming a stellar run both domestically and in Europe.
Once again holding a six-point buffer over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, Jurgen Klopp’s men are the only side across England’s footballing tiers who are yet to taste defeat this season.
Dreaming of landing a famous silverware sweep this year, last year’s Champions League winners have now scored four goals against both Genk and Salzburg. It is no surprise that the former BVB boss finds his side as a clear favourite to land the top spot in Group E come next month.
Klopp’s side can be found at 4/6 with Ladbrokes to secure top spot in Group E, ahead of Napoli who are pencilled in at 7/4.
One man to watch out for on Tuesday will be Ballon d’Or nominee and last weekend’s last-gasp hero, Sadio Mane.
Finding the net on the road on Saturday, the Senegal international has also scored in back-to-back Champions League matchups and can be found at 8/13 with Bet365 to extend that run in midweek.
Genk’s continued rut
Putting in another very worrying display in their 2-0 defeat away at AS Eupen over the weekend, the former Belgium champions have continued to stall.
Now freefalling down to 8th in the First Division, new boss Felice Mazzù is already coming under increasing pressure with his side recording just a single victory since the 6th of October.
Already sat at the foot of Group E and five points adrift of both Liverpool and Napoli, Tuesday’s traveling support also have a growing reputation for their continued European issues, particularly on foreign soil.
Failing to win any of their last 13 Champions League appearances, Blauw-Wit have also lost their last five European matches on their travels, conceding a stunning 18 goals in their last three Champions League matches away from the Luminus Arena.
You might be interested to know that Genk can be found at 11/2 with Paddy Power to once again ship over 5.5 goals on the road in midweek.
Still facing trips to campaign, Tuesday could prove to be yet Anfield and the San Paolo Stadium to finish their Group E another long night on Merseyside.
