Union SG vs Liverpool: Top free betting tips
Can Liverpool’s B team avoid a defeat in Brussels? Our Union SG vs Liverpool prediction is for a home win with the Reds expected to rest most of the regulars in this match.
Liverpool are already confirmed as winners of their Europa League group. With a hectic month of December ahead of them on the domestic stage coach Jurgen Klopp is expected to leave many of his key players out of this game on Thursday. Union SG are going very strong domestically and they will guarantee their presence in Europe in the spring only if they win this match.
Correct outcome prediction: Union SG to win
With our opening Union SG vs Liverpool prediction we back the hosts to record the win they need to guarantee their presence in Europe come the knockouts. Union SG come into this match high on confidence after being able to win all of their last 7 home matches. Liverpool are set to use mainly reserves and teenagers in this match. When they did so in their last away Europa League game they lost 2-3 vs Toulouse.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
We expect an open game and that’s what our second Union SG vs Liverpool prediction is that both sides will find the back of the net. This has happened in 8 of Union’s last 9 home matches. Also, both away games in Europe so far for Liverpool had BTTS outcomes.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Union SG
Our final Union SG vs Liverpool prediction is traditionally the correct score. We think Union will edge this match 2-1. This has been the scoreline in 4 of Union’s last 5 home games. Also, Union’s only win so far in the group was a 2-1 home success vs LASK.

How far will Liverpool’s fans travel to Union SG?
The flying distance between Liverpool and the Belgian capital Brussels is only 357 miles (575km). With lots of cheap flights on offer this is likely to be the preferred way of travel for most, if not all, Liverpool fans. The flight takes less than an hour and the exit from the airport is very easy with minimal customs delays or checks.
We know all the chocolate makers and craft beer sellers in Brussels are keenly waiting for the English supporters. For those who plan to combine watching the game and shopping for quality Christmas gifts, we advise you to take an early flight and enjoy a full day in the beautiful city of Brussels. The big challenge here is to keep all these delicious boxes of Belgian chocolate and bottles of craft beer tight shut, while they tempt you so much!
Union SG vs Liverpool: Tickets
Our understanding is that all the tickets for the home section of the stadium are sold, so it’s too late to purchase any.
It seems Liverpool’s fans also had purchased most of the tickets available. To qualify for an away ticket for this game a Liverpool fan needed to have attended a minimum of 9 away Champions League or Europa League matches over the last 3 seasons. At the time of writing the only tickets we can see still for sale for the away section of the stadium are only 2 tickets and they are resale. Also, the combined asking price is a whopping £475 on www.footballticketpad.com. The tickets seem genuine but the asking price is many times more than what they originally cost.
