Belgian champions KRC Genk face a must-win match when they host last year's 2nd-place Italian side SSC Napoli in a UEFA Champions League Matchday 2 clash.

Last year’s 2nd-place Italian Serie side, SSC Napoli, are still riding high after taking down defending European Champions Liverpool — a team that has won all seven of its domestic matches this season — 2-0 in their UEFA Champions League group stage opener. The win was the highlight of what has been a difficult season so far for Carlo Ancelotti’s club who, as The Inquisitr reported, has already suffered two losses in their first six games. But on Wednesday, the Azzurri have a chance to feast on an opponent who has struggled both domestically and in their Champions League opener, Belgian champions KRC Genk.

Generally known as Racing Genk, the club now sits 7th domestically, with three losses in eight games, and was comprehensively trounced by German club Red Bull Salzburg 6-2 in their Group E opener. They will need to dig deeper against Napoli or face likely elimination, as they head into the match that will stream live from Belgium.

Kickoff is scheduled for 6:55 p.m. Central European Summer Time at the 23,700-seat Luminus Arena, formerly known as Fenixstadion, in Genk, Belgium, on Wednesday, October 2.

Fans in Italy and throughout Central Europe can also catch the kickoff at 6:55 p.m. in the same time zone as Belgium. In the United States, the game gets underway at 12:55 p.m. EDT, 9:55 a.m. PDT. In India, the Racing vs. Gli Azzurri match kicks off at 10:25 p.m. on Wednesday night.

The match is so important to Genk that the Belgian domestic league agreed to postpone the club’s weekend fixture to allow “The Smurfs” additional time to prepare for the Napoli showdown, according to Stats Zone. The club is largely healthy, with the exception of Congolese winger Dieumerci Ndongala, who will miss the game with an injury.

Genk have now allowed 10 goals in their last two European matches. But in one danger sign for Napoli, the club do not hold an away win in their last 15 UEFA Champions League games.
