Union Saint Gilloise vs Bayer Leverkusen Predictions

  • Bayer Leverkusen have won seven of their last nine competitive games.
  • Bayer Leverkusen have scored at least two goals in four of their last five Europa League games
  • At least three goals have been scored in five of Union S-G’s last eight Europa League fixtures

Union SG can’t ride their luck forever

Union Saint-Gilloise put in an impressive defensive display in a 1-1 draw in the first leg as they look to become the very first Belgian team to make a European semi-final since 1993.

The Bundesliga club had won seven straight games in all competitions until that draw in the reverse, including a 2-1 victory over the ten-time consecutive Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, and should prove a tough a nut for Karel Geraerts’ side to crack considering the massive variance in xG in the first leg.

Xabi Alonso’s side have been defensively sound in recent weeks, conceding only twice in their last four Bundesliga games, but they are also regularly hitting multiple goals even without injured striker Patrik Schick.

Leverkusen can make their chances pay

Leverkusen’s stunning front line have often hit multi-goal scorelines this season and with 15 goal attempts along with an xG of 1.64 in the first leg, in comparison to Union SG’s 0.66, suggests that there is something of a gulf in attacking quality between the sides.

Leverkusen can grab at least two goals against a Union side that shipped three times away to Union Berlin in the previous round, although they have already proven they can slot one past the Eternal Bridesmaids themselves.

We’re going for a Leverkusen win with both teams scoring here. Both teams will want to take the initiative with silverware on the line and this could end up being another entertaining affair with action at both ends. For smaller stakes, we’re going for a slender 2-1 win for Leverkusen in the correct score market.
