My name is Dave, a European football enthusiast, I believe all leagues have their own charms. This is the reason why I have been watching and studying those less popular leagues for 20 years.

Thursday’s Europa League action features Dinamo Zagreb battling it out with Genk.
Dinamo Zagreb have had mixed fortunes in the Europa League so far this season, winning half of their games while losing the other two, yet they have still managed to secure a strong position -- the second place in the table. Dinamo Zagreb were at their best during the previous match in the competition as they defeated Rapid Wien 3-1. However, since that victory Dinamo Zagreb have failed to win a game when returning to league football, having been beaten by NK Lokomotiva and then drawing against Osijek.
Racing Genk were winless in eight of their past eleven games, and in the process had gone on a five-game losing streak. The defeat on Thursday is one of two occasions where Genk have lost in the Europa League this season, with the squad having only managed to win one game. That victory took place on the opening match, which was also the only time that Genk have been able to keep a clean sheet in the competition this season. They had conceded two or more goals in six of their preceding eight away games.
Dinamo Zagreb have surprisingly struggled defensively in recent weeks and are likely to be punished by a potent Genk attack. However, home advantage could count in Zagreb's favor. Therefore expect the host to secure a victory with goals at both ends.
