Union SG sit eight points clear of their nearest title rivals Anderlecht and look set to reclaim the First Division A trophy this season. This weekend, Union SG make the trip to bottom-of-the-table Kortrijk who aren't expected to offer much in the way of a threat to the title-chasers.

Kortrijk had been enjoying a decent run of form until their defeat to Sint-Truiden last time out, picking up two wins and two draws from their previous four league games. Union SG were knocked out of the cup by Club Brugge and followed that up with a home draw against Westerlo in the league but a return to winning ways is expected on Sunday.

Player to watch – Cameron Puertas

Cameron Puertas has certainly played his part in Union SG's title chase this season. The Spaniard is his team's playmaker, setting up an impressive 12 goals so far this season.

Union SG's playmaker set to shine this weekend

Puertas has also chipped in with five goals in the league so far this season but is on the ball, in or around the penalty area that the midfielder does the most damage, picking out teammates in dangerous position on a regular basis.
