The race to feature in the Europa League group stage continues on Thursday as Genk hosts Olympiacos in one of the exciting fixtures. Having failed to get past Servette in the 2nd qualifying round of the Champions League, Genk is jostling for a ticket to Europe’s 2nd tier club competition. Following a 1-0 loss in the first leg of this tie, the Belgian side have a lot to play for as they look to overturn that deficit and get past Olympiacos. With this, they would have another chance to replicate or better the quarter-final berth of the 2016/17 Europa League season.
On their part, Olympiacos are more experienced in continental football than Genk having made various appearances at both the UCL and Europa League. In fact, in their last 3 Europa League stint, Olympiacos have made it to the knockout stages. To push further and have a chance to challenge something historic, they would be looking to protect their first-leg lead here. Also, following their 3rd place finish on the Greek league table last season, Olympiacos are desperate to become more competitive across board. Hence, getting a Europa League ticket will be top on their agenda asides wanting domestic glory.
With Genk playing at home and the Group stage ticket being at stake, we believe a Genk win (Draw no bet) prediction is a good choice for this Genk Vs Olympiacos prediction.

Main tip: Genk Win (DNB)
Our Getafe vs Barcelona predictions
According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: Genk Win (DNB)
A 1-0 first leg loss makes this tie a very crucial one for Genk. To have any shot at continental club football this season, they must first bring the aggregate score back on level terms and possibly push for a win. Looking at Olympiacos’ somewhat better European experience, getting anything here might be a tall order for Genk. However, Genk’s home advantage and their 4-0 win in the last home tie against Olympiacos, we are going with Genk Win (Draw No Bet) on Betwinner. This means Genk will win or the game will be voided in the event of a stalemate.

Prediction 3: Genk or Under 2.5 Goals
One of Genk’s last 3 home games produced very few goals with less than 3 goals registered. Although, scoring goals will increase their chances of overturning the first leg advantage held by Olympiacos, we still expect a relatively quiet tie on the goal front. In line with this, we are expecting a pulsating tie with a win for Genk or fewer than 3 goals scored
