Union Saint-Gilloise vs Gent
Belgian First Division A

Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Stade Joseph Marien (Bruxelles).

Union Saint-Gilloise hoist Gent in the derby of the Matchday No 21 on Sunday afternoon at Stade Joseph Marien.

The hosts are enjoying a phenomenal spell of form in this term of First Division A. They are seriously threatening to end Club Brugge’s dominance in Belgian football.

Felice Mazzu’s men are six points clear at the top of the league standings after 20 rounds of the competition.

This should not come as a massive surprise, though. For those who are not familiar with this team, Union Saint-Gilloise are a famous Belgian team. They won as many as eleven First Division A titles back in the 1920s and the 1930s.

The hosts have a deadly attacking duo in the likes of Deniz Undav and Dante Vanzeir. They are both on double digits in terms of goals scored so far in the season (16 and 11 respectively).

Union Saint-Gilloise own by far the best attacking record in the entire league with 50 goals scored in 20 outings so far in the season.

It will be very interesting to see how Union SG will tackle Gent who have also been in great form lately.

The visitors won five of the last six league outings. They scored five and conceded five goals in the last two league matches against Mechelen and Sint-Truiden.
