Racing Genk vs Besiktas: Exciting tie in open Europa League Group I

04:04, 07 Nov 2018

Belgian side Genk will be welcoming Portuguese rivals Besiktas for a Europa League Group I match day four tie on Thursday. The host will look for another step towards almost certain qualification with another win at home.


They currently sit top of the group of the group with six points from three matches, two ahead of Malmo and Sarpsborg who sit joint second. They will be coming from a 1-1 draw in the Belgian Pro League against Club Brugge over the weekend. Dieumerci Ndongala was on target as they picked another point that helped them remain top of the standing and will be a key figure in this tie alongside Tanzanian Mbwana Samatta.

Besiktas occupy last position on the table and are in dire need of wins to get their campaign back on track. It is a possible venture seeing as they are only three points behind the leaders with three matches to go. They will be looking to avenge a 4-2 first leg home defeat and will again rely on Vagner Love who scored a brace to lead the revenge mission.
