Philippe Clement had a lot of players a rest against Union, Heynen in the place of Berge after he proposed to his strongest team. That paid off, because Genk started well against Eupen and came right away a few times, threaten. After a little less than a quarter of an hour play was all touch. Van Crombrugge had a nice save in the house on the attempt of Malinovskyi, but unfortunately for the goalkeeper of Eupen tapped Samatta the rebound simple within: 0-1.
Genk remained in the match to dominate, and even before halfway through the first half was at it again. Samatta had Blondelle on the spot, and Van Crombrugge was hopeless: 0-2, and the fourteenth goal for the attacker this season. The Tanzanian extended on Saturday his contract with Genk and fourth to be so in style.
Eupen wanted to respond, but Genk had the focus not the bags. It remained quiet combining and the space.
In the second half, the Limburgers still a little bit of the foot off the accelerator. Eupen was threatening, the calling of Castro-Montes ended up in the hands of Genk-goalie Vukovic. Really close to a goal came for the Pandas, however. Deep into injury time put ref Dierick the ball on the spot for hands, but on the advice of the VAR, he turned his steps back. It remained so 0-2 Am of the Kehrweg. Genk reserves so his lead of seven points at Club Brugge.
