Toulouse vs Union Saint-Gilloise Prediction

Les Pitchouns have just one win in their last eight games across all competitions, suffering four defeats. They have scored eight goals while conceding 16 times in that period. They have lost just one of their last nine home games in all competitions while five games in that period have ended in draws.

They are winless in three meetings against Belgian teams and might struggle here. Zakaria Aboukhlal remains a long-term absentee for head coach Carles Martínez Novell through a serious knee injury.

Les Unionistes have lost just one of their last nine competitive games, recording seven wins. They have scored at least two goals in seven games in that period. They were unbeaten in away games in the Europa League last season but suffered defeats in their two away games this term.

The hosts have seen a drop in form recently, with just one win in their last eight games. Interestingly, they defeated Liverpool in their previous outing in the competition and will look to continue that form in this match. With that in mind and considering the visitors' poor run in the competition, a low-scoring draw might ensue.

Prediction: Toulouse 1-1 Union Saint-Gilloise
