Since the start of the season, KRC Genk is more dominant at home. They have eleven wins out of 20 games on home soil. Although KRC Genk is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 30% home clean sheets.
Royal Antwerp FC has picked up 5 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Ploeg van't Stad wins 1.50 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence.

The Great Old failed to win in three consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Thursday and win against KRC Genk. Furthermore, they are in really bad away form, having lost two consecutive games on the road.
