Belgian Cup semi-final first leg
7.45pm Tuesday

Kortrijk, unbeatable at home since a change of head coach, look a tempting price to beat Genk in the first leg of their Belgian Cup semi-final.

Four-time winners Genk – they’ve never lost a final – always make Belgium’s domestic knockout competition a priority so it’s no great surprise to see the Limburgers in the last four.

It also means coach that Philippe Clement will send out a strong side at the Guldensporen Stadion.

But Kortrijk have taken no prisoners getting to this stage and, unrecognisable since Glen De Boeck took the reins in West Flanders in November, they look a value bet.

Under De Boeck, Kortrijk reign supreme on their own patch.

Saturday’s 0-0 draw against Eupen were the first home points dropped by Kortrijk under the former Belgian defender and they’ve been just as impressive in the cup, beating Antwerp 4-2 and Gent 4-1 in the last two rounds.

Teddy Chevalier, with seven goals in his last nine, leads a strong attack and it’s worth remembering that Kortrijk won 3-2 at Genk just before Christmas.

Five of Genk’s seven wins in the league have come on their travels but their form is patchy and less impressive than Kortrijk’s.
