Union Berlin Team News
Union Berlin was one of the major surprises in the top 5 European leagues last season with a 5th place finish in Germany Bundesliga. Once again they started the season very well with three wins and two draws after five games. They scored 12 goals and only Bayern Munchen have a better attack (17) than Union.
If we count league games from the last season, Union is without a defeat since the middle of March. In the last 15 games, they were defeated only once and it was in the final of the German Cup in May.
Urs Fischer is doing an amazing job at Union. He took the job in 2018. In his first season at the club, he led Union to Bundesliga and with every season they were better and better – 11th, 7th, and 5th last season.
Union played in UEFA Conference League last season and it was their first season in Europe since the 2001/02 season. They finished in 3rd place behind Feyenoord and Slavia Prague.
This season they got one very tough group where every club has a chance to qualify for the next round. This game against Belgium side USG will be key to starting a group stage with points.
Royale Union Saint-Gilloise Team News
USG are in European competition for the first time since the 1964/65 season. They lose to Rangers in qualifications for UEFA Champions League and they drop to the UEFA Europe League group stage.
The last couple of years are crazy for Royale Union Saint-Gilloise. In May 2018 the owner of Brighton Tony Bloom became a major shareholder of the club. They were promoted from Belgium First Division B in 2020/21 and last season they were in a fight for the title almost until the end with Club Brugge but eventually they finish in second place.
USG has a solid start to the new season with four wins and 13 points after seven games. They are a very good attacking side with 11 goals scored but at the same time, they have problems with defence. They conceded 11 goals and kept only one clean sheet.
Their form is hot and cold at the moment with three wins and three defeats in the last six games.
They played two years ago in a friendly game which ended with a 2-2 draw.
Team News and Injuries
Union Berlin: Jordan, Diogo Leite, and Timo Baumgartl are out.

Union Berlin vs. Royale Union Saint-Gilloise Prediction
Both teams will try to win a point or points here and we expect a tough game. Union is probably the more experienced side because this is their second season in Europe but Royale will have their own motives here. Both sides are very interesting to watch in their own leagues with a lot of goals in their games.
Union, as we said, have a very good attack and Royale also is a very solid attacking side with small problems in defence.
We will escape a bet on a full-time and go for goals here.
Prediction: Over 2.5 goals
