Union St. Gilloise vs Union Berlin Best Predictions and Odds

The Belgian club keeps writing its gloriest days in its history, and now the ultimate challenge awaits playing at home against a Bundesliga side that barely survived the first leg without losing.

Check out our Europea League predictions and betting tips page for any suggestions.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

The first match ended with a 3-3 score, and if we learn anything from these teams, their defense can be a bit scratchy at times. For the first Union St. Gilloise vs Union Berlin prediction, both teams' scoring seems like a logical conclusion. St. Gilloise had five BTTS games in the last six games in different competitions while the Berlin team had three of those games with the same number of matches played. When we look at their defensive prowess, Union looks a bit more stable in the back, but that doesn't have to mean much as we could be convinced during their first match last week.

Over 2.5 Goals

Even though the first game of Union St. Gilloise vs Union Berlin ended with six goals, that doesn't have to mean that something like that will happen in the return leg as well. This prediction is based on the fact that the Belgian side has been playing games with plenty of goals in the last few weeks. Four of their last five league matches went over the 2.5 goals mark while when we look at the entire season, they are one of the best ‘over' teams in the top ten European leagues with 20 of those matches compared to nine in the other direction. Union Berlin is on the other side of the spectrum with 13 ‘over' games which is a bottom three rank in the Bundesliga.

Union St. Gilloise vs Union Berlin Lineups, Team News, and Preview

Union St. Gilloise

The Belgian side has been impressing football pundits across Europe for a few years now, and it seems that they are growing in potential every season. Currently, they are lying second in the Belgian league which is a position they've gotten used to for the last couple of years. Coach Karel Geraerts has a full squad at his disposal.

Provisional lineup: Moris, Kandouss, Burgess, Van Der Heyden, Nieuwkoop, Lazare Amani, Lynen, Teuma, Adingra, Vertessen, Boniface.

Union Berlin

The other Union, the one from Berlin is still very much in the hunt for Champions League football next season, but they have failed to win their last four Bundesliga matches which certainly caused some concern within the club. Last week against the Belgians, they barely survived in a thrilling encounter that had six goals to entertain the fans. Danilho Doekhi, Rani Khedira, Andras Schafer, and Niko Giesselmann are all expected to miss the trip to Belgium due to injuries.

Provisional lineup: Ronnow, Trimmel, Juranovic, Knoche, Leite, Seguin, Haberer, Thorsby, Laidouni, Becker, Michel.

Player to Watch: Josip Juranovic

The Croatian international has become the biggest signing for Union Berlin when he was brought in from Celtic in January, and his form has already exceeded expectations from the Bundesliga side's fans. The right-back player has scored three goals in only eight appearances for his new club also adding three assists in the process.
