Genk will welcome Slavia Prague for their second leg meeting of the 1/16 finals of the Europa League. The first game ended in a goalless draw and now the Czechs need just a scoring draw in order to progress, while only a win will do the job for Genk.

Worth mentioning: Genk went unbeaten at home during the group stages, recording two wins and a draw and have not lost at home in the last 15 continental outings. Genk have not ended an European game in a goalless draw on home soil since 2012 and on top of that, they have scored at least twice in five of their last six continental home games, so another 0:0 draw on Thursday looks unlikely.
Slavia Prague did not score in three of the team’s four away games in Europa League this season. They won the game where they scored and that turned out to be their only second away win in 25 continental visits. The Czechs are the team with the lowest number of goals scored in the group stage of the competition – four, that progressed to the knock-out stages. Four penalties were awarded in the team’s last six away games.
