With Charleroi and Genk, two teams meet at a similar level of play. Although the guests are reigning champions, there is not much left of the title trophy team. Various top performers, including the master trainer, have left the club during the summer break.
Soccer Betting Tips Charleroi vs Genk
But the newly ragged troupe seems to stabilize itself slowly: After defeats against the promoted Mechelen and Zulte-Waregem was taken in the last three games no further bust. Before the international break, the Smurfs also achieved a prestigious victory over record champions Anderlecht and a draw at Bruges.
However, at least the Brussels are miles from previous glory days away and in the match had also RSC player coach Vincent Kompany replaced prematurely because of an injury. A simple task was just as well for Charleroi on the board. This provided for the duel with Waasland-Beveren.
The match won the zebras 4: 0, but here must be relativized again, because the opponent presents so far as a sporting bye in the Jupiler League: Only one point was fetched on the first six matchdays and conceded just under three goals per match.
In the meeting between Charleroi and Genk, the odds are very close together and a real favorite can not be identified. However, we see a personal problem with the title holder. Several players had to compete in the international break for their national teams, which is why the physical condition of the home side should turn out better.
The Charleroi vs. Genk tip therefore includes that the zebras do not go out as losers and the guests will only ever score for the goal. The latter prediction is based mainly on the fact that the Genker top striker Mbwana Samatta after his stakes for Tanzania will wear particularly tired and his strike partner Theo Bongonda will probably continue to pass.
Charleroi – Statistics & Current Form
It was not to be expected that the offensive on Charleroi’s side would work well with just under two goals per game. The Walloons lost with Victor Osimhen their clear best striker. The 20-year-old Nigerian was sold to Lille, not far from French Ligue 1.
There, the attacker should fill the gap left by the departure of Pepe to Arsenal. With two double packs on the first four matchdays, he is absolutely on target with this objective.
Apparently, the departure of Osimhen in parallel with previously inconspicuous offensive players has strengthened a hitherto restrained urge to score. These include above all the Belgian Massimo Bruno and Japanese Ryota Morioka. Both are completing their second seasons with the zebras and after a poor debut playing time, the kickers are now more formidable.
Morioka have scored in three of their last four league appearances and Bruno has scored half of last year’s goals with two goals in five appearances, but the striker needed 34 appearances … At the same time, the defensive of the new coach Karim Belhocine’s team is still not really solid.
With the exception of the last meeting at the mentioned extra-awkward footballers of the bottom of the table Waasland-Beveren, no clean sheet has been reached yet. In Charleroi against Genk thus offer the odds for a mutual goal – in spite of the offensive problems of the guests – in addition to.
Expected formation of Charleroi:
↪ Penneteau – Diagne – Marinos – Dessoleil – Fortuna – Bruno – Ilaimaharaita – Diandy – Nicholson – Fall – Morioko

Genk – Statistics & Current Form
Master has had a bitter summer: the playful pillars of success have literally taken the Flemings away. The team had to be rebuilt. That this takes time is clear even to the most diehard fans of the Blue-Whites.
Slowly, however, the team is regrouping into a more homogeneous unit compared to the bumpy start to the season. Above all, the point win in the extremely strong home runners from Bruges may be seen as progress in the development of the team.
Although it was not successful in the tenth attempt in a row, but it usually sets in the last few years in the guest appearances in the Jan Breydel Stadium even a defeat, which is why the point can be considered a success.
In addition, although the staff situation of the Elf is not as rosy as last year, but for the conditions of the Jupiler League, in which the stars at all clubs due to the limited financial means have no long half-life in terms of their contracts, it is still above average occupied.
Above all, the whereabouts of Mbana Samatta can be assessed positively from the point of view of the KRC. The attacker from Tanzania has already scored five goals, as mentioned at the beginning, bringing him more than half of Genker’s goals.
Expected formation of Genk:
↪ Coucke – de Norre – Lucumi – Dewaest – Urones – mountains – Piotrowski – Heynen – Samatta – Paintsil – Ito

For the Genker coach Felice Mazzu, the upcoming match is certainly a special date. The 53-year-old was born in Charleroi and has been training zebras for the last six years. A successful time, as Mazzu always led the Walloons to a single-digit table position. Areas that were rarely reached in the years before.
His new task is again very difficult: After the departure of the master trainer Philippe Clement to vice from Bruges and the loss of many regular players, the KRC had to be repositioned in many positions.
With his last three games without defeat, with Anderlecht defeated and a point was taken in the fortress Jan Breydel Stadium in Bruges, but a handwriting is slowly emerging from him.
Regardless, the team is no longer comparable with the eleven from the previous year. Above all, the offensive has suffered and is now even more dependent on the services of top scorer Samatta.
Key Facts – Charleroi vs Genk tips
⭐️ Genk has not lost the last six duels with the Walloons (3-3-0)
⭐️ Hosts have always met on the first five matchdays
⭐️ Charleroi has been waiting for their next home win against Genk for almost three years (0-4-1)
The kicker from Tanzania seems to cope with the increased responsibility nevertheless – with five goals after six rounds he is again at the top of the scorer rating. The home side are currently offering a clean offensive despite the departure of Vivtor Osimhen. In each league match was hit at least once.
The mentioned constancy of Samatta might not be possible this time. The striker had to play against Burundi twice during the international break for the World Cup qualifier for Tanzania.
Heavy games, with the offensive player with his Taifa Stars after a 1: 1 in the first leg and return match in regular time even completed an extension last Sunday. He was also replaced, which is why Samatta either does not fit properly or even fails completely.
In any case, the master is offensively weakened and on top of that, some other players contested energy-consuming internationals. For the encounter between Charleroi and Genk, the tip is therefore that the home side will benefit from this favorable timing of the game setting and will not lose.
