How is Genk coming along?

Genk is, right now, the last classified of the group with 3 points from 3 matches played, 1 goal scored and 6 conceded, 1 win and 2 defeats.

The Belgians started the group stage with a win in Austria against Rapid Vienna, 1-0, with a solitary goal by Paul Onuachu in stoppage time.

However, on the second matchday they were stunned at home by the Croatian Dinamo Zagreb, 0-3, showing that the team would have a lot of work to do to ensure qualification for the next stage.

This became even clearer when on matchday three they went to London to lose yet again, 3-0 again, to West Ham, who will now be their away opponents.

In the league, Genk are in seventh place with 20 points from 13 matches, 27 goals scored and 22 conceded.

After conceding another 0-3 defeat at home to Gent in the league, they beat Waregem, 6-2, on the last matchday, after having also beaten Saint Eloois, 6-0, in the Belgian Cup.

12:14 PM2 months ago

How is West Ham coming along?

West Ham is the outstanding leader of Group H with 9 points obtained in 3 matches played, only with victories and with 7 goals scored and no goals conceded.

The English team has been demonstrating in the Europa League the excellent league that it has been doing also in the First League, proving that it is one of the potential candidates to win the competition.

The Londoners started their participation in the group stage with a 2-0 win in Croatia against Dinamo Zagreb, then defeated at home the Austrians Rapid Vienna, 2-0, and closed the group with a 3-0 win against Genk.

Despite sometimes playing with a second line, the team shows to have a high quality squad capable of facing the various competitions in which the team is inserted.

These were David Moyes' statements prior to his 1000th match. 

Personally, it’s a big day. All managers who start would like to get to 1,000 games but rarely get there. It’s a big achievement, it is, and I think all managers would be proud of it. It shows longevity and consistency in the game and I’ll be proud to get there.

I had my 999th game against Aston Villa and it was another one which will always stay in my memory and thankfully I won that one.

11:53 AM2 months ago


David Moyes will today complete 1000 games as D.T., congratulations to the boss! 

After leading West Ham United to a record points and wins record in the Premier League last season, the manager has guided the Hammers on a record eight-game unbeaten run away from home in the top flight.

Now, Moyes is looking for another milestone, as the Hammers could become the first English club in UEFA Europa League history to win their first four group stage games without conceding a goal.

Watch out for this West Ham player:

Tomas Soucek has become one of the fundamental pieces that the Hammers have, the center midfielder or pivot has gone from strength to strength since his arrival in the Premier League being an undisputed starter and increasing his value in the transfer market. At the moment he has 5,680 minutes played with West Ham, 66 times he has appeared in the starting lineup and has scored 14 times, he also has two assists so far this season.

1:45 PM3 months ago

Watch out for this Genk player:

From Mexico to the whole world, formed in the youth academy of Santos Laguna and one of the jewels with more projection in national team, Gerardo Arteaga, will be the player to follow for this match. The Mexican, signed in 2020 by Genk, has so far accumulated 3,838 minutes played with the Belgian team, 47 appearances in the starting lineup, 3 goals with the blue jersey and 6 assists. He has also recorded 6 yellow cards but has never seen the red card so far, the Mexican could be the one who balances the balance in favor of Genk and give them the victory their team needs so much.

Refereeing team:

For this match, Craig Pawson will be the central referee, he will be accompanied by Ian Hussin and Scott Ledger as the assistants 1 and 2 respectively, finally, Michael Salisbury will serve as the fourth referee. In the VAR, referees Michael Oliver and Dan Cook will be in charge of monitoring any dubious play inside the box or that merits a red card.
1:20 PM3 months ago

Looking to secure qualification

The Hammers are living one of their best moments so far this season, for starters, they are coming from a victory against Manchester City in the round of 16 of the Carabao Cup, also, at the weekend they beat Aston Villa in the Premier League and in the Europa League they are undefeated and group leaders with 9 points. Likewise, they currently have 7 goals scored and no goals conceded so if they win, the Hammers would be in the next round of the Europa League. 
1:15 PM3 months ago

Win or die

The Genk team is in trouble that could end in their elimination from the current UEFA Europa League, for starters, they are at the bottom of Group H with only three points, which have come from one win and two defeats in the first round. Likewise, they have only scored 1 goal and have allowed 5 goals to be conceded, resulting in a goal difference of -5. Should they fail to beat West Ham, the Belgian team would be signing their sentence and would be almost completely eliminated from the competition.

The road to Seville begins

All great moments began in a dream and there are only a few lucky ones who can boast in their lives that they once got to hold Europe in their arms and were named "princes of Europe". Once again, the dreams of 48 teams seeking to engrave their name in eternal glory begin, but to do so, they will have to overcome a long road full of obstacles to reach the main event, Seville, and have the honor of being crowned as the new champions of the old continent. In Group "H", West Ham and KRC Genk will face each other in another UEFA Europa League group stage duel, with the English side remaining leaders of the competition, while the local team will be looking for points to have aspirations of getting out of the bottom of the group.
