Betting tip for Genk vs KV Oostende
Genk could win this in cruise control. We suspect that this will be an impressive display by the short-price favourites. Only a fool would be confident of an upset in this one. Genk to win; 1.55 with some companies. While we can see a decent display in this one, the value is not great in this particular match-up so bear that in mind.
