Union Saint-Gilloise have been plugging away the points with a lot of comfort. Apart from a few scares like the home defeat against OH Leuven, Union Saint-Gilloise have not put much wrong. Manager Felice Mazzu will be able to see his team continue their domination thanks to a lack of injuries in the squad.


Genk might have a good set of results but the team’s impact in away matches has been very limited. Genk would be struggling in the mid-table positions if only home form was taken into account. Paul Onuachu is unavailable due to a hamstring injury, while manager Bernd Storck will also be without Kristian Thorstvedt due to suspension.
