Europa: Champions League – Play off – ¼ finals (2nd leg).
Match start: 21:05 (GMT+1)
Genk will play with one of the most motivated teams of the Europa League – Spanish Celta – which sacrifices the championship in order to gain success in the tournament. Genk is very strong club but the level of the Belgian team is lower than the Spanish midlevel club with ambitions. During the first match that was held in Vigo the battle ended with the winning of hosts with the score 3:2 and this outcome doesn’t mean that Celta will move further.
All thought that very simple Belgian team that had taken only 8th line in the tournament bracket won’t be able to impress European football society but this team had managed to do this! This football club has very powerful squad with a lot of young talented football players. The leaders of modern Genk are such players as Malinowski, Samatta, Karelis and Trossard. This club is practicing very open football counting on its strong attack line which has a high level of creativity and perfect speed figures.
The Spanish club is more academic than its rivals, using the experience and skills. Leaders of Celta (Aspas, Wass, Sisto, Cabral) are very experienced and skilled football players. Celta continues to fight for every point but chances to pass through the tournament bracket of the national championship into Euro Cups are minimal. But the Spaniards can win in the Europe League as it is very typical for teams from this country and may gain the right to start at the Champions League next year.
According to the previous game outcome the Belgian club counts on home matches during which the team of Stuivenberg is demonstrating perfect results. We can’t be sure that Genk will gain necessary result to move further but it can’t lose at home arena.
