The Belgian Cup title will be at stake when Union Saint-Gilloise and Antwerp lock horns on Thursday afternoon in the north-western district of the City of Brussels.

Les Unionistes Union 60 are competing in the finals of this competition for the first time in 24 years, while Antwerp were Belgian Cup winners last season.

Union Saint-Gilloise had the chance to reduce the gap between them and league leaders Club Brugge to just one point when they played host to Anderlecht at Stade Joseph Marien last weekend. Alexander Blessin’s men left the game with just one point, but they will bring a three game unbeaten run with them into Thursday’s Belgian Cup final.

Antwerp can no longer claim back to back Belgian Pro League titles, with the Great Old instead battling to finish the season in the top four. Mark van Bommel's side have dropped to the bottom of the standings in the Championship round after losing all their last three games 9-2 on aggregate. Antwerp had very little problems in the Belgian Cup semifinal, thrashing Oostende 4-1 on aggregate, but Thursday’s game isn’t expected to be an easy one.

Union Saint-Gilloise vs Antwerp Betting Tips: Union SG to win & over 2.5 goals

These two sides have already gone head to head three times in 2024, with Union Saint-Gilloise winning each of the last two meetings, while one ended in a draw. An average of three goals per game were scored in that spell.

Though many expect Union Saint-Gilloise to win this comfortably, they are unlikely to do so without conceding. Les Unionistes boast just one clean sheet from their last eight games across all competitions, and five of those fixtures produced at least three goals.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals
  • Union Saint-Gilloise vs Antwerp prediction: 2-1
