* Betting odds were correct at the time of publication but are subject to change

Union Saint-Gilloise are the clear favourite to win the Belgian league title this season but can't afford too many slip-ups between now and the end of the season as Anderlecht sit four points behind them in second place.

Union Saint-Gilloise vs Sint-Truiden prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Over 2.5 Goals

  • At least three goals have been scored in four of the last six meetings between these two clubs in all competitions.
  • Four of Union SG's last six outings have also produced over 2.5 goals.

Another reason that we have backed over 2.5 goals as our main prediction is that Sint-Truiden recently lost 3-0 away at RWDM.

Union Saint-Gilloise vs Sint-Truiden team news

Union SG

Despite having their goalkeeper sent off late on, Union Saint-Gilloise managed to come away from Club Brugge with a share of the spoils in their final game of 2023. Gustaf Nilsson fired Union in front after twenty-seven minutes but Club Brugge equalised from the penalty spot in the second half and the game ended in a draw.

Loïc Lapoussin and Charles Vanhoutte are suspended for Sunday's match, while Thierry Lazare and Mohamed Amoura are away on international duty.

Predicted Lineup: Imbrechts (GK), Burgess, Sadiki, Mac Allister, Castro-Montes, Amani, Rasmussen, Puertas, Rodríguez, Nilsson & Eckert Ayensa

Sint-Truiden

Sint-Truiden will be disappointed not to have won away at Standard Liege in their last league game, especially after the visitors took the lead so late in the game. This match looked like it might be going to end goalless despite the best efforts of both teams. However, Joel Fujita scored for Sint-Truiden with four minutes left on the clock, seemingly winning the game. However, the home side were awarded a stoppage-time penalty which was converted to make the final scoreline 1-1.

Rein Van Helden is scheduled for the trip to Union SG this weekend, while forward Aboubakary Koita is at AFCON 2023.

Predicted Lineup: Coppens (GK), Godeau, Hashioka, Bocat, Ananou, Smets, Fujita, Steuckers, Delorge-Knieper, Barnes & Kaya

Player to Watch: Cameron Puertas

Union Saint-Gilloise midfielder Cameron Puertas has provided the creative spark in the club's title race this season.

Nobody else in Belgium's top flight has as many assists as Puertas this season with the Spaniard setting up ten goals as things stand.

We're backing Puertas to put in the kind of performance the Union SG fans have come to expect from him this season, guiding the league leaders to yet another three points.
