The Blue-White are not to be taken lightly in front of their own fans, and Al Hain-Cole expects them to put up a stern resistance against Klopp's men

Liverpool will be determined to return to winning ways when they travel to the Luminus Arena to take on Genk in Wednesday’s Champions League clash.

Jurgen Klopp’s men saw their 100 per cent start to the Premier League season brought to an end on Sunday, when they needed a late equaliser to draw 1-1 at Manchester United.

However, they are clear 1.25 favourites with Sportsbet to put that disappointment behind them by coming out on top in Belgium.

Bottom of Group E with one point from the first available six, the Blue-White are priced at 10.00 to secure their first ever group stage victory at the 15th attempt.

The hosts did manage a creditable 0-0 draw with Napoli last time out, and can be backed at 6.00 to earn another point against the current champions.

Genk vs Liverpool team news

Danny Vukovic and Neto Borges are both unavailable due to respective Achilles tendon and foot injuries.

Mohamed Salah is a doubt after missing the draw at Old Trafford due to an ankle injury, while Xherdan Shaqiri is also unlikely to be fit and Nathaniel Clyne remains a long-term absentee.

Genk vs Liverpool preview

Immediately written off as the group’s whipping boys following the opening 6-2 thrashing in Salzburg, Felice Mazzu’s team defied that tag with their hard fought stalemate against Napoli.

In fact, the Belgians are no easy mark on home turf, having lost just one of their seven group matches in front of their own fans - against such tough opposition as Roma, Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Having never conceded more than once in those games, they will be feeling quietly confident of frustrating a Reds side that has scored just once in their last four group stage away matches.

Genk vs Liverpool predictions

In fact, odds of 1.72 seem like solid value on under 3.5 goals being scored for Genk’s eighth group stage home game in eight, as well as Liverpool’s fifth in a row on the road.
