Liverpool nearly suffered their first league loss of the season on Saturday at Aston Villa, but their 2-1 comeback win kept them 6 points clear at the top ahead of Manchester City. The Reds were slightly lucky in that game and will now be hoping for better performance when they face Genk at Anfield in the UCL on Matchday 4.
The defending European champions are pushing for another victory in this competition, especially with things starting to get tight. The Reds are just 3 points ahead of an impress Salzburg side, while Napoli lead the way. As such, it is an understatement to say that Liverpool desperately need all 3 points against the group’s bottom side.
Meanwhile, Genk are rooted to the bottom of the table and look unlikely to move off it any time soon given their opponents this week. The visitors did hold Napoli to a shock 0-0 draw on Matchday 2, but otherwise, the Belgian side have looked defensively awful after 2 heavy defeats already in this group.

Liverpool vs Genk Prediction
- We don’t have much hope in Genk after they suffered a 4-1 defeat in the reverse fixture, and it could get even worse. This should be a straightforward match for the hosts and we are tipping Liverpool for a 3-0 win or better.
