Liverpool vs Genk
Who? Liverpool vs Genk in Group F of Matchweek 4 of the UEFA Champions League 2019/20
Where? Anfield, Liverpool
When? 20:00 GMT, Tuesday 5th November 2019
Matchweek 4 of the UEFA Champions League sees reigning Champion League winners Liverpool host Belgian outfit Genk at Anfield.
The Reds had to ride their luck last time out in the league. A 94th minute winner from star man Sadio Mane meant Liverpool have maintained their gap over Manchester City. They have incredibly accumulated 31 points out of a possible 33. In the Champions League, Liverpool are looking strong favourites to top Group E should they see off Genk and Napoli at home. Liverpool have already defeated Genk 4-1 away from home.
For Genk, they are looking to get some points on the board. Just the solitary point so far for Genk in the Champions League this season means they will probably compete with Salzburg for a Europa League Play-off spot. They drew at home to Napoli, however suffered heavy defeats to Salzburg and tonights hosts Liverpool. Their league form has taken a hit too, with just one win in their last five league matches.
Liverpool (1/10* to Win): Liverpool will be without Joel Matip, Xherdan Shaqiri and Nathaniel Clyne. We expect front three Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mo Salah to play. The defensive partner of Virgil van Dijk could be Dejan Lovren or Joe Gomez.
Genk (25/1* to Win): The visitors are without Finnish defender Jere Uronen and Australian goalkeeper Danny Vukovic. We expect the Belgian side to start with Tanzanian forward Mbwana Samatta. He has one goal so far in the Group Stages and six league goals this season.
Liverpool beat the Belgian side 4-1 last time out, thanks to a brace from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who was the standout player on the night!
