Union to win
Standard Liege have had a disappointing First Division A campaign so far; they are 13th on the 18 team table, with just nine wins from 32 league games. Luka Elsner’s men have struggled to win games lately; they’ve won just two of their last nine games, with two draws and five losses. On the other hand, Union Saint-Gilloise are having the best season of their lives; they are league leaders, having won 22 of 32 league games this season. Union Saint-Gilloise have no losses in their last six games, with four wins and two draws; considering the form of both teams, we’re predicting a win for the visitors.
A clean sheet and three points coming up
These teams already met this season, and Union Saint-Gilloise won that game by a comfortable 4:0 score line. It’s important to point out that Union Saint-Gilloise have been unstoppable on the road this season; they have won their last four away games, scoring 12 goals in those four games. As a matter of fact, Union Saint-Gilloise have no losses in their last 13 road games; they’ve been the best road team in the league, losing just once in 16 games away from home. In contrast, Standard Liege have won just one of their last nine home games; they’ve lost five of those games, with three draws. Standard Liege failed to score in five of their last seven games; for this reason, we believe that Union Saint-Gilloise will win whilst keeping a clean sheet.
A low scorer
Finally, we’ll take a look at the over/under goals market. Union Saint-Gilloise have actually been the highest scoring team in the First Division A; they’ve averaged more than 2 goals per game this season. However, Union Saint-Gilloise will be going up against a Standard Liege side that did not score in five of their last seven games. In fact, Standard Liege scored just two goals in that seven game stretch. It’s worth noting that Standard Liege’s games tend to be really low-scoring games; all of their last eight games went under 2.5, with all their last six games going under 1.5. With this in mind, this will likely be a low-scoring game.
