Union Saint-Gilloise vs Anderlecht Prediction

Royal Union are slight favourites, and their superior head-to-head will give them confidence heading into the game. Les Unionistes started the season slowly but have rebounded in recent weeks.

Anderlecht, meanwhile, have been impressive and will be eager to end their four-game losing streak against Saint-Gilloise. The two teams are likely to play on the front foot and have enough quality to find the back of the net. So the spoils could be shared in a high-scoring draw.

Prediction: Union Saint-Gilloise 2-2 Anderlecht
