Union Saint Gilloise to Win

Reason for tip

Union SG have won each of their last six meetings with Anderlecht and can make the most of home advantage in Alexander Blessin’s first game in charge by claiming all three points on Friday in the opening game of the new First Division A season.

Union Saint Gilloise 2-1

Reason for tip

Union SG should be able to win but a clean sheet may be out of reach. Anderlecht lost and scored in both meetings last term, while the hosts have just two clean sheets in their last 10 competitive home games so a 2-1 win for Les Unionistes appeals.

Union Saint Gilloise vs Anderlecht Predictions

  • Union SG won 14 of their 20 home league games last season.
  • The hosts missed out on the Belgian title by just one point.
  • Union SG have won each of the last six head-to-head meetings.

High-quality curtain raiser as First Division A kicks off

Belgium’s First Division A returns this weekend and there is a huge clash to open proceedings on Friday night as Royal Union SG take on Anderlecht.

Les Unionistes have a new manager in place as former Genoa boss Alexander Blessin and he will be tasked with attempting to win a first title for the club since the 1930s, having narrowly missed out in each of the last two seasons.

Anderlecht will be seeking to improve on last season’s disappointing 11th place finish but face a tricky opener as they have struggled against their hosts in recent times.

Home form key for USG

Union SG won 13 of their 17 home games in the league last season, losing just twice, before falling short in the Championship Group – losing two of their three home fixtures as they finished just one point behind champions Antwerp.

Blessin’s men will need to make the Stade Joseph Marien a fortress in the season ahead and after a productive pre-season they look well placed to overcome an Anderlecht side who they have bested in each of the last six meetings between these two clubs.

A home win looks a strong option for our main bet, and a 2-1 win for the hosts looks a reasonable correct score prediction. Union SG have just two clean sheets in their last 10 competitive home games and Anderlecht scored in both league meetings last term despite losing both fixtures,

Union SG have lost last season’s top scorer as Simon Adingra has returned to parent club Brighton, but new recruit Elton Kabangu may be able to fill the void after scoring in his last friendly appearance and he can grab a competitive debut goal for the Belgian title hopefuls.
