Both teams have been in electric form this season. They remain unstoppable as the season drags to a close. Union Saint-Gilloise lead the standings with 77 points and command a formidable goal difference of +51.
No other team have come close. Leading scorer German Deniz Undav has contributed immensely to this goal pool. His current tally of 26 goals is only closely monitored by Michael Frey of Royal Antwerp, who has netted 22 times so far.
Club Brugge are a team every other side are scared of this season. The Blauw-Zwart have been enjoying a near-flawless home-and-away run while staying hot on the heels of Union Saint-Gilloise. They are five points shy of the leaders. A win at Stade Joseph Marien would cut that to two. Charles De Ketelaere and Bas Dost have helped with 14 and 12 goals respectively.
Besides the points, bragging rights are also at stake in this clash of the titans. Union Saint-Gilloise will be aiming for nothing short of full points, while Club Brugge will be happy to share the spoils.
