Team News: Eupen
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the lone fitness concern for the Eupen boss Bernd Storck to be concerned about from an otherwise complete group. Sibiry Keita (Muscle Injury) misses out.
It looks as if Pandas may well make use of the 4-3-3 formation in the match, beginning the first half with Lennart Moser, Yentl Van Genechten, Rune Paeshuyse, Boris Lambert, Jason Davidson, Stef Peeters, James Jeggo, Mubarak Wakaso, Regan Charles-Cook, Sambou Soumano and Isaac Nuhu.
Team News: Union Saint-Gilloise
With a fully healthy group available for selection, the Union Saint-Gilloise boss Karel Geraerts does not have any fitness worries to report coming into this clash.
We reckon that Les Unionistes seem likely to elect for a 3-5-2 system using Anthony Moris, Ismael Kandouss, Christian Burgess, Siebe Van Der Heyden, Guillaume Francois, Senne Lynen, Jose Rodriguez, Teddy Teuma, Loïc Lapoussin, Simon Adingra and Victor Boniface.
We’re thinking that Eupen will have a tough ask to score goals against this Union Saint-Gilloise lineup who will likely get the vital goal that wins it.
We therefore fancy a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 winning score for Union Saint-Gilloise at the end of the 90.
We’ll see what happens.
