Chelsea v Genk Betting Preview
Chelsea go into this sure-banker match on a good run of form. Having demolished Swansea, Bolton and Everton in recent weeks, confidence will be high at Stamford Bridge. So far in Group E, Chelsea have managed a win against a strong Bayer Leverkusen team and managed a goalless draw with Valencia. Facing Genk will look appetising for Chelsea’s high scoring hot shots in comparison. The main team news for Chelsea is the availability of Fernando Torres, as his suspension only includes league games. He will surely start, as Drogba played at the weekend, and will therefore be Chelsea’s main offensive weapon. Back Torres to finally hit the form he’s been promising all season and bag a hat trick – 16/1 with William Hill. Andre Villas-Boas has promised to put out a strong line up, and their midfield will surely run riot, with non-stop attack expected. Therefore at an incredible price of 5/6 with Bet365, bet on the total corners of the match to be over 10.
Chelsea v Genk Betting Betting odds
Genk are struggling as of late, having lost their last two league games and drop to 9th in Belgian Pro League. Last seasons champions are struggling to compete with runaway leaders Anderlecht. Genk’s defence is definitely their weak point, and with a spearhead led by Fernando Torres it is hard to see Genk be able to cope. However, their attack is their strong point, especially through former Rangers winger Thomas Buffel and workhorse striker Jelle Vossen, who struck 20 goals last season. The Belgian International and rumoured Everton transfer target is 13/2 with Sporting Bet to score at anytime.
Match Prediction: Expect Chelsea to dominate this game with ease, as they are far superior on paper and have hit form at the perfect time. A comfortable victory is widely expected, with a potential score line that looks more suited to a Rugby match.
