12:25 PM6 days ago

KRC GENK TEAM SUMMARY

But Genk goes through the same situation. Just a little bit cooler: Genk can't win 3 official matches in a row already. First, there were draws at home with West Ham (2: 2) in the Europa League and Cercle Brugge (1: 1) in the Belgian championship, and on November 21 they lost 0: 2 away against Beershort (an outsider in the Belgian championship).
12:23 PM6 days ago

DINAMO ZAGREB TEAM SUMMARY

Dynamo Zagreb is on the verge of earning a ticket to the Europa League playoffs. To do this, the team just needs to win at home against the team they beat confidently in September. But then Zagreb Dynamo was on a good run. But now we have a defeat of Zagreb Lokomotiv (0: 1) and a 1: 1 draw with Osijek in the Austrian Championship: the team can not win 2 games in a row.

Historical clashes

In the history of head-to-head meetings between these rivals, there is only 1 match: on September 30, the Croatians won without problems against Genk in a 3:0 scoreline party. Can they also win at home?


 

12:03 PM6 days ago

Here's how Genk arrives

As for the visitors, Genk, they have won just one of their last 14 European matches, including qualifiers (Draws - 3, Defeats - 10), but as that win came in the group stage, they still have a chance if they are able to defy the odds and win here.

However, this will be easier said than done as they face a Zagreb side that has not lost 12 of their last 14 home games in the Europa League. The fact that the last six Belgian teams to face Zagreb have failed to even score a goal casts doubt on Genk's chances.

11:53 AM6 days ago

Here's how Dinamo Zagreb arrive

The goal is simple: avoid defeat and Dinamo Zagreb will remain in the top two going into the final day of the group stage. However, with just two points ahead of Genk and a trip to Premier League rivals West Ham awaiting them, Zagreb will want to take all three points here.

Given what's at stake and Zagreb's solid form against Belgian opponents (Wins - 5, Draws - 2, Losses - 1), betting on the home side to get the job done at what looks like a good price is a good option.

Game Context

Thursday's Europa League at the Stadion Maksimir pits Dinamo Zagreb and Genk, the two teams vying for second place in Group H. Dinamo Zagreb did well to beat Rapid Vienna 3-1 in their final group game, bringing the team a step closer to qualifying for the round of 16.
Genk, meanwhile, drew 2-2 with West Ham United in their final group stage match. The Belgians are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, but beating Dinamo in Zagreb is easier said than done.
11:43 AM6 days ago

Genk's starting eleven ready!

This is how the Belgian team will start to face what could be their last chance to continue dreaming of advancing in the competition. 

11:38 AM6 days ago

The wait is over!

The wait is over, the UEFA Europa League action resumes with the match between Dinamo Zagreb vs Genk in group H. If the home team wins, the Croatian team will qualify to the next round, but if the visitors come away with all three points, the group will be much tighter.

Watch out for this Dinamo Zagreb player:

Bruno Petkovic has become one of the fundamental pieces that the Dinamo Zagreb team possesses, the center midfielder or sometimes center forward has gone from less to more since his arrival in the First Division of Croatia being undisputed starter and increasing each time much more his value in the transfer market. At the moment he has played 9,504 minutes with the Croatian team, in 143 times he has appeared in the starting lineup and has scored 48 times, he also has 35 assists since he has worn the colors of Dinamo and has only received the yellow card 22 times. Bruno could tip the scales in his team's favor at any moment and give them a place in the next round of the Europa League.

11:18 AM6 days ago

Watch out for this Genk player:

From Mexico for 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.

Last Dinamo Zagreb lineup:

D. Livakovic, S. Moharrami, J. Sutalo, K. Theopile Catherine, B. Franjic; J. Misic, A. Gojak, L. Ivanusec, B. Petkovic, M. Orsic; K. Andric.

Background:

Interestingly, the two teams had never met in all of history until two months ago when they met for the first time in the UEFA Europa League. On that occasion, Dinamo Zagreb won away to Genk 3-0 at the end of the second round of the UEFA Europa League group stage. On that occasion, the scorers were Luka Ivanusec, Bruno Petkvic and an own goal by Daniel Munoz.
10:58 AM6 days ago

Refereeing team:

For this match, Craig Pawson will be the central referee, accompanied by Ian Hussin and Scott Ledger as assistants 1 and 2 respectively, and Michael Salisbury will be 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.
10:53 AM6 days ago

Looking to secure qualification

The Modri's team is experiencing one of its best moments so far this season, for starters, they are third in the Croatian First Division with 28 points so far this season and in the UEFA Europa League they are second in the group with 6 points obtained from 2 wins and 2 defeats. Likewise, they have 7 goals scored and 5 goals conceded, which leaves them with a +2 goal difference, a statistic that gives them a slight advantage over their opponents who have allowed more goals in their goal. In case of winning, the Croatian team could be sealing their qualification to the next round of the championship and thus reach the last matchday without worries, however, in case of losing, they would be putting their qualification at risk.
10:48 AM6 days 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, one draw and two defeats in the first round. They have only scored 3 goals, while they have allowed 8 goals to be conceded, resulting in a goal difference of -5. However, the Belgian team is dreaming of getting into the next round at the last minute after drawing with West Ham in a 2-2 heart-stopping match, although it is not all happiness, since, if they cannot beat Dinamo Zagreb, the Belgian team would be signing their sentence and would almost be 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", KRC Genk and Dinamo Zagreb will face each other in another UEFA Europa League group stage duel, with the English side remaining leaders of the competition, while the locals will be looking to win to have aspirations of getting out of the bottom of the group.
