Anderlecht to Win
Vincent Kompany and Co. have a marker on their backs. The Belgian powerhouse finished its last campaign in fourth place after going six matches without a win. At the same time, Union Saint -Gilloise went on a winning run that secured their promotion to the Jupiler League. The hosts will look to put the record straight and start the campaign on a winning run. They have home-field advantage and enough quality to overcome the challenge of USG.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
All five of Anderlect's most recent fixtures have seen three goals or more. The statistics read three in five away trips of Union Saint-Gilloise. The last time USG made the trip to the Lotto Stadium, RSC suffered the ignominy of a 0-3 defeat and crashed out of the Belgian Cup. Since then, both sides have continued to be centre for goals in their respective leagues. If their preseason form is any indicator, there should be goals as they meet again.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
The Purple and White have not kept a clean sheet at home in 12 outings. While USG has only failed to score on their away trips twice in twenty fixtures. With the hosts struggling to shut out their rivals and the visitors scoring with relative ease, there should be goals on either side of the pitch in this fixture.
Anderlecht vs Union Saint-Gilloise: Team News and Match Preview
RSC Anderlecht had hoped for a revival of their fortunes when they appointed Vincent Kompany as their manager. The script could not have gone worse as they have struggled under his stewardship. Such has been their plight that they are winless in 11 fixtures, friendly and competitive combined. The current campaign is the last straw and the former Manchester City defender has to deliver or its curtains on his return to Anderlecht.
USG fought their way out of the First Division B to make it to the Jupiler League. To maintain continuity in the Belgian top-flight football will require them to play out of their skin, especially as they start every matchday as underdogs. Felice Mazzu will not be bothered by the tags as Union Saint-Gilloise proved they are more than capable of holding their own. They have won seven of their nine pre-season fixtures, seven more than their rivals Anderlecht have managed.
