Genk vs Oostende

The second leg of semi-final in the Belgian Cup with Genk vs. Oostende at the Luminus Arena, Genk.

In the first leg Genk was by far the better team. Genk had many chances with Bailey and Samata to win this game, but it was an individual action from Vandendriessche who gave KVO the lead after some weak defense from Genk. Genk searched for the equalizer, and at the hour it was Malinovskiy who scored for Genk. Afterwards Genk had some more chances to win the match, for example Bailey hitted the crossbar. The Oostende we saw in the first leg didnt show much and we are more used from this team. We agree with the owner, who said afterwards his team "can do much better". In the second leg Oostende will play against a hampered Genk who is without Bailey, Bizot and Buffel (who also didnt play in 1e leg).

Genk comes from a 1-0 defeat at Mechelen. Overall it was a very closed match without many good attemps on goal. In '89 Genk conceded a goal on a free kick. Afterwards Genk searched for the equalizer but Coosemans kept a clean sheet for Mechelen with 2 good saves in the last minutes of the match. Oostende lost 3-0 at Sint-Truiden. Oostende had good ball possesion, but in the 16 they missed a striker. Sint-truiden was the more dangerous team and scored 1-0 and 2-0 from set pieces. KVO coach hopes for a reaction at Genk and said KVO still have to believe they can qualify for the Cup Final.

Possible selection KVO: Dutoit, Chopin, Rozehnal, Godeau, Bossaerts, Milic, Antunes, Tomasevic, Marusic, Capon, Jali, Vandendriessche, Jonckheere, Özkan, Berrier, El Ghanassy, Conte, Canesin, Cyriac, Akpala, Dimata; Out : Proto (knee), Pedersen (foot), Ovono (personal) and Siani (Africa Cup) ; Questionable: Musona (in time back from Africa Cup?)

Possible selection Genk: Brabec, Ryan (ready?), Colley, Walsh, Dewaest, Kumordzi, Susic, Naranjo, Trossard, Wouters, Malinovskyi, Uronen, Schrijvers, Pozuelo, Berge, Heynen, Jackers, Coucke, Castagne, Samatta

Genk can't count on their captain Buffel (personal), Bizot (ankle) and Bailey (transfer). Genk will rent Ryan (ex Club Brugge) from Valencia till end of season in replacement of Bizot (6 weeks out).

In my opinion the bookies make Genk to much favorite in this match and certainly in the category 'To Qualify'. They give too much weight to the 1e leg performance and the out goal Genk made in the first leg. Genk has a good home reputation, but is without some basic players the team is used too: they miss their captain and the experience of Buffel (as seen at Mechelen), they will miss also the individual quality of Bailey to break open a closed game and their first goalkeeper Bizot is out. It remains a question if Ryan will be ready to start for Genk yet. Also, Mechelen showed this weekend how the danger from Pozuelo can be neutralised. In 2017 Oostende showed a bad form with 1 draw and 2 losses in Belgian football, but this don't mean they have no chances at Genk. KVO is a dangerous team with alot of quality, it is also possible Musona will return. @4.2 to qualify has big value imo! (correct score 1-1 @7 is another bet I make on this match)

Pick Oostende to qualify @4.2 found at Marathonbet. good luck!

India v england t20 betting the alternative facts that make england a decent bet

There are times when you think England's cricket team would fit quite well in the new Donald Trump era of "Alternative Facts". You can almost hear Trevor Bayliss telling us it has been "the best tour of India undertaken by any team, period."

The mainstream media are telling you that we've lost a Test series 4-1, then been beaten 2-1 in the ODIs despite scoring more than 300 each time. But that's just typical of those evil journalists, suggesting that some of the bowling, captaincy and field placing might not have been up to scratch.

If you go with the Alternative Facts then England batted and bowled superbly in the five-day version, hammered an unprecedented number of runs in the white ball game, and were no worse than "a little disappointing" when it came to the bowling.

There were other triumphs among the Alternative Facts too. Ben Stokes, for instance, might not have been trusted to bowl the last over in Kolkata when India needed 16 to win. But according to skipper Eoin Morgan he didn't need any protection from the memories of being hit for four sixes in the last over of the T20 World Cup final.

So now it comes down to a three-match Twenty20 series which starts on Thursday. India are inevitably the favourites, [4.1] to win the series with a 3-0 whitewash.

But I'm actually quite tempted to go with the Alternative Facts and back England at [2.2] in the match odds for the first encounter in Kanpur which starts at 11am our time.

For a start there are signs that skipper Eoin Morgan has rediscovered his mojo with the bat at just the right time. His 102 in the second ODI might have been in a losing cause, but it was followed by a promising 43 in the next game and has ended any doubts about his captaincy.

Then there has been the explosive hitting of Stokes, whose 57 from 39 balls in Sunday's game followed an equally belligerent 62 off 40 including five sixes in Pune.

And finally comes the arrival of Tymal Mills, the 24-year-old Sussex fast bowler who will add genuine pace to an England attack which has been a bit one-dimensional in the ODI games.

Left-armer Mills is the epitome of the modern cricketer, flying round the world as a mercenary in the shortest form of the game. Already this winter he's been in Bangladesh, New Zealand and Australia.

Unable to bowl long spells because of a back condition that once threatened not just his career but his ability to lead a normal life, he can be devastating in the four overs that T20 restricts everybody to. He has flown into India after clocking 93mph in two Big Bash League games and looks certain to go straight into England's team in Kanpur.

Given that the bowling, rather than the batting, has been the problem it could make a key difference to the tourists' chances. In his one England game to date he conceded just 22 runs from his four overs against Sri Lanka in Southampton.

The Alternative Facts say there has been only marginal difference between England and India all winter. Just possibly there are now some ways to bridge that gap.
