After the international break, tomorrow we receive leader Union Sint-Gillis for the 15e matchday of the Jupiler Pro League. As promotor, we can call traditional club Union a surprising leader. But not if we look at the statistics, because the people from Brussels score easily and collect very little. Our Coastal Boys are in the right column after the zero on nine.
On the previous match day, Union Charleroi won 4-0. The team from Brussels is on a strong run. This season, the promotor already gained victories against Anderlecht, Standard and Gent.
At Union it's all about the king and queen pair of Danté Vanzeir and Deniz Undav. Together they are good for 19 goals and 13 assists. In midfield, the duo of Teddy Teuma and Casper Nielsen provide the necessary stamina and creativity.
The last time our Kustboys met Union was on July 26, 2020. In an exhibition match to prepare the new season, KVO lost 1-2 to the people from Brussels. It is the first time that both clubs meet each other on the highest level. The last season of Union in first division was in ... 1973. In 1969 it played a draw in the Albert Park against AS Oostende (3-3).
