Genk host Olympiacos Piraeus at Cegeka Arena in this return game of the UEFA Europa League 3rd qualifying round. The narrow 1-0 first-leg win leaves the Greek side in the driving seat ahead of Genk, in this battle for a place in the UEFA Europa League play-offs round.
Genk lost with a narrow 1-0 in the first leg, conceding a goal in the 1st minute, however, they were the better side on the pitch for almost the whole match. They had some great chances, especially in the second half, and a shot that hit the post in the dying minutes.
For the Belgian league, Genk won 0-1 over Cercle Brugge last Sunday after a rather mediocre game. In their six competitive matches in all competitions for this season, Genk have won two, drawn two, and lost two. They scored eight and conceded five in that period. Tolu Arokodare leads Genk in European qualifying this season with two goals.
In last week's opening leg, Olympiacos emerged victorious 1-0 at Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium. Captain Kostas Fortounis scored the lone goal of the match only a few seconds after the starting whistle. With that win, Olympiacos broke a negative streak of seven winless European games (two draws and five losses).
That was the first competitive match for the Greek side for the season 2023/24, as the Greek Super League starts this weekend where Olympiacos face newcomers Panserraikos.

Genk deserved a goal in Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium and scoring at least once tonight is the minimum expected for them in front of their fans. Olympiacos is still building their new season’s roster and at this moment they are only interested in results than performing well. Visitors have the quality and the experience to find the net tonight as well. BTTS is our last call in this return leg.
