The Red Bulls made a flying start to their Austrian Bundesliga campaign and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Genk. Top scorer from the last season Munas Dabbur left the club in the summer transfer window, but Japan international Takumi Minanimo is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. Salzburg kick off their Champions League campaign with a match against Genk at their Red Bull Arena.

Red Bull Salzburg vs Genk Prediction, Betting Tips 18/09/2019

This will be the first head to head match between these two teams, so we cant rely on head-to-head records, but we can analyze recent matches and current form of both teams. I believe that the hosts will prove why they are listed as favourites in this match and that they will add one more victory to their impressive winning streak.

Speaking of the Belgian Cup, the club clinched their fourth trophy in the competition in 2013. They finished the season with 73 points, two points clear of second-placed Club Brugge. Genk clinched one Belgian Pro League trophy in the 20th century, with the team winning the 1989/1999 title. Genk won their second domestic trophy in 2002 and the team lifted the Belgian Pro League title in 2011 as well.

A lot has happened at the club since then; a controversial rebranding following Red Bull's 2005 purchase of the club saw them lose some fans, while they have been thwarted in qualifying for this competition on no fewer than 13 occasions - including seven in a row before this season, despite not actually having lost a qualifying match inside normal time since 2015.

We appreciate your input!

All the eyes in the home crowd will be on Salzburgs striker Erling Braut Haland, who scored 8 goals and provided 3 assists. Still, only two of them are important players, Marin Pongracic and Masaya Okugawa are still recovering from their injuries, and their return date is unknown. Manager Jesse Marsch will have a bit of a hard time with the injured players, as there are four of them reported.

Danny Vukovic one of their goalkeepers and Mbwana Samatta, their great striker wont be available for the upcoming clash. There are reports of injuries in the visiting team as well. The player to watch in the visiting team will be their newcomer Paul Onuachu who already scored the first goal for his new team. Their manager, Felice Mazzu will have some hard time trying to find who can fill in for Mbwana Samatta as he is their top goalscorer.

Should be an interesting one. We feel that in this game, KRC Genk should get enough chances to find the back of the net against this FC Red Bull Salzburg outfit, however it possibly wont quite be as many as they will have scored against them. We reckon that it will be a close game with a 2-1 win for FC Red Bull Salzburg at the end of this one.

Who will win Tuesday's Champions League clash between Red Bull Salzburg and Genk?

According to all that, I dont think theyll be able to make much of an impact against such a tough opponent. Even though they are the reigning champions of the Belgian First Division, they are currently not doing well in the league. And they definitely didnt score nearly as many goals as their upcoming opponents, in fact, they netted 9 and conceded 5. Genk, commonly known as the Smurfs, produced a mixed bag of results recently. In their last 5 matches in all competitions, they recorded 2 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw. They are obviously playing much worse than they did last year, and are in the 9th place in the standings.
