As immediate goals, Antwerp has the podium, which he can do right now, if he defeats Genk.
The champion, in turn, desperately wants to take the play-off, for financial reasons, but also for the proud, because it would be shameful for the title holder to reach the bottom half of the hierarchy.
Ladislau Bölöni’s team is undefeated, internally, on its own ground, with Bosuil bowing even to the leader Brugge, this being his only Pro League defeat. Genk had mixed benefits on foreign land (as well as at home), as well as being able to have a lamentable benefit, but also to make a beautiful figure. She was a beautiful figure with a maximum of one equal, for she did not seem to have the strength to bring Antwerp the first defeat at home. And as in both meetings of this season where they met, each team scored (2-2 in the championship at Genk and 3-3 in the cup at Antwerp), go on the same recipe in this game.
