Tanzania foward Mbwana Samatta struck three goals as Genk secured an emphatic 5-2 win over Broendby IF in the first leg of the Uefa Europa League playoff encounter.
The speedy Tanzanian captain gave the Blue-White the lead in the 37th minute, after heading Alejandro Pozuelo’s cross past Marvin Schwaebe.
And before the break, Leandro Trossard doubled the lead from the penalty spot for the hosts after John Larsson handled the ball in the area.
After Genk’s third , Samatta turned the Brondy Stadium outfit’s parade sour four minutes later, powering a header past Schwaebe and with just 20 minutes of action left, he completed his treble.
The former TP Mazembe player is being trailed by French ligue one side Bordeaux .
