Royale Union SG, once the biggest Belgian club, returned to the company of the best two years ago and immediately became the biggest "hit" in the Jupiler Pro League. The club from the Brussels municipality of Saint-Gilloise continues to dominate the Belgian championship this season as well, confirming that last year's title fight with Club Brugge was not a coincidence, and according to everything shown so far, they are once again considered one of the most serious candidates for the Belgian championship title. Royale Union took advantage of the stumbling of the leader Genk in the continuation of the season after the World Cup break and reduced the deficit to seven points.

Gent, the club that won the Belgian title for the last and only time in 2015, are playing solidly in this year's edition of the Jupiler Pro League and after 19 games played they have collected 31 points, which led to this club parking in the 5th position in the table - the first place below the line in relation to the teams in the positions from which they are playing for the title. In fact, Gent are just three points behind current champions and fourth-placed Club Brugge, so they still have hopes of joining the top four by the end of the season.

Royale Union SG vs Gent Betting Tips: BTTS

These two teams have only met three times in recent history. The club from Saint-Gilloise remained unbeaten in all three, of which two duels ended in their favor, including the first of this season, when it was 2-0 for Royale Union.

After a colorful start to the season, Royale Union shines again in full glory in the last two months. They have remained unbeaten in their previous 13 games in Belgium, a streak dating back to early September (W9, D4).

The club from Saint-Gilloise has become a real "punishment expedition" lately. They have won, all competitive and non-competitive, each of their last six games. That series includes the victory over Oostende (2-1) in the Belgian Cup.

Their murderous "realization" was particularly impressive. They shaken the opponent's nets even 21 times during that winning streak, which gives an average of more than three goals per match. Really great performance!

The impression is that the break due to the World Cup disturbed Gent, since they have already gone three games in a row without scoring a goal in the regular 90 minutes, while they secured the quarter-finals of the Belgian Cup only after extra time, beating Cercle Brugge 2-0.

Royale Union are rightly the favorites in this duel, but given that they have a very unstable backline that has allowed at least a goal in eight of their last nine games, we believe that Gent's attack will be resourceful enough in front of goal to find a way to the hosts' net. In any case, an open duel with goals in both nets is on the cards!

Gent Team News

Unlike the hosts, Gent has personnel problems ahead of the trip to Brussels, so against Royale Union, the long-injured Andreas Hanche-Olsen, Tarik Tissoudali and Darko Lemajic will not be in the team.

Coach Hein Vanhaezebrouck, by all accounts, will also be without key center-back Jordan Torunarigha, who was forced to leave the field in the 35th minute in the last round against Antwerp due to an injury.
