Royal Union Saint-Gilloise hosts Anderlecht in round 25 of the Belgian Jupiler Pro League. The match will be played on Sunday, January 30th at Stade Joseph Marien (Brussels)
Felice Mazzu’s team tops the Belgian Jupiler Pro League standings with 54 points. Royal Union SG has 17 victories, three draws, and four defeats after 24 rounds. The Unionists get closer to victory in the regular season with each round. There are ten rounds left, and the team, which returned to the elite of Belgian football after 48 years, has a nine-point gap from the closest competitor, Club Brugge KV. On January 27, the Unionists shared points with his team away (0-0). Mazzu’s men chose counterattacking tactics and were close to victory. But Brugge goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, who was on a roll, did not let this event happen. The ex-player of Liverpool made six saves and helped the home team avoid defeat.

Vincent Kompany’s team is ranked 4th in the Pro League standings with 42 points after 24 matches. Anderlecht gained 11 victories and nine draws and suffered four losses. The Purple-Whites lost a lot of points in the autumn segment of the Belgian Championship and ingloriously ended the fight in European competitions, losing to Vitesse in the Conference League qualification (3-3 and 1-2). After the away defeat to Antwerp on November 7 (2-0), Anderlecht improved the results in the championship. In the next nine rounds, Kompany’s men gained six victories and three draws. The unbeaten run of the Purple-Whites was interrupted on January 26 in a home match against Cercle Brugge. In the 25th minute, the hosts were one man down because Wesley Hoedt was sent off, and they conceded two unanswered goals after the break.
On Sunday, Royal Union SG will play against another competitor for the title. Mazzu’s team is the best in the Pro League in terms of points scored at home (25), but Anderlecht suffered only two defeats in 12 away matches — against Genk (1-0) and Antwerp (2-0). There is no clear favorite in the upcoming game, so it would be more logical to bet on production. Both teams suffered personnel losses in defense, and this increases the chances of a spectacular game. In addition, these opponents scored at least four goals for two in both head-to-head matches in 2021.
