Jupiler Pro League: Genk gets scared but wins against Eupen (4-2)

It only took three minutes for Joseph Paintsil to put Genk in charge. The Limburg winger got rid of his defender before deceiving Abdul Nurudeen with a cross shot (3rd). Six minutes later, the South African offered himself a double by pushing to the bottom a strike from Cyriel Dessers badly repelled by Nurudeen (9th).

After a complicated start to the match, Eupen recovered thanks to their home striker Smail Prevljak. Well served by Isaac Christie-Davies, the Bosnian deceived Maarten Vandevoordt with a cross volley (32nd). A short-lived joy for the Pandas because Genk quickly regained a two-goal lead on a powerful strike from Patrik Hrosovsky (37th).

Up to the game at rest in place of Nurudeen, at fault on two of the three Limburg goals, Lennart Moser kept Eupen in the match. The German speakers then took the opportunity to reduce the mark again via Regan Charles-Cook, on receiving a center from Yentl Van Genechten (60th).

Genk still created many chances to widen the gap but Moser made many valuable saves while his teammates did not make the right choices on the counter. Stef Peeters then put an end to eupenois hopes by receiving a second yellow card (83rd). In numerical superiority, Racing took shelter in stoppage time via Mike Trésor (90th + 2).
