Euro Genk won with 0-1 against Darmstadt after a perfect free-kick executed by Malinovski in the first half. The Belgian set, now led by it’s new coach Albert Stuivenberg, was superior to the German team managed by Frings. Pozuelo and Bailey pointed out in a first half left that could be marked by a larger score. In the second half, the Hungarian Kleinheisler had the opportunity to equalize, but couldn’t overcome Bizot. Thus, Euro Racing Genk obtained a deserved win at Pinatar Arena.
