Union Saint-Gilloise returned to the winning path after the surprising loss to Leuven and will now face another one of the league's strongest sides – Mechelen. Royale Union need to continue with the good results if they want to keep the difference between them and Antwerp and Club Brugge, who have also been incredible in recent weeks.

Union Saint-Gilloise and Mechelen played twice already this season and surprisingly, both fixtures were won by Mechelen although Union are the stronger team overall. What will happen in the third fixture on Sunday?
Both Teams To Score – Yes
This is the most obvious market for this match – Both teams score a lot of goals and we expect this match to be goal-packed like the previous two games this season, which ended at 3:1 and 2:1 for Mechelen. Despite their overall positive season, Mechelen concede a lot of goals and against Royale, who are the highest-scoring team in the league, there is no doubt that they will score. At the same time, Mechelen's style of play appears to be inconvenient for Union and they should concede at least one goal for the third consecutive time.
Match Result – Union Saint-Gilloise
It's time for the leaders of the Jupiler League to grab a win against Mechelen. In both of the previous fixtures, Union were the stronger team on the pitch but Mechelen's defense simply held up nicely which prevented them from scoring more. Union are not the strongest host in the league but this is a very important part of the season and they need to play their best football in order to keep that lead in the table. Mechelen will have a huge number of missing players in all positions, so we expect them to have difficulties in this fixture.
Team To Score – Both Halves – Union Saint-Gilloise
We expect this game to be extremely goal-packed with at least 3 goals but maybe even more. In each case, we expect Union to be the better team on the pitch that will look for the goal from the first minute of this game. Union have scored 43 goals in 17 games and they often score before half time. We expect them to win first half and add at least one more goal after the break.
