The Belgians are favorites going into tonight’s second leg, but odds on Cork to win are too high I think. I’ve seen last week’s first leg in Belgium and the opening round of the Belgian Jupiler League last weekend when Genk defeated Oostende 2-1 and in both games Genk were very poor at the back. In both games they allowed too many clear chances to their opponents and were more than lucky to win both games.
Cork are very good at home this season and in eight games they’ve won seven and drawn once. They have conceded only 3 goals on home soil in the league to date. I know that Genk are better side than teams in domestic league, but after Dundalk trashed Bate Borisov 3-0 on Tuesday, I just feel that difference shouldn’t be this big as the odds suggesting.
