Antwerp want to make a statement against Union SG towards title, Emke Courtois clear: 'A little distortion of the competition' – Football News

The last matches in the regular competition are scheduled to be held on Sunday. Then we can prepare for the playoffs. Things may turn out to be more interesting than many think.

Union SG are favorites to win the title this season, but they indicated last week against Royal Antwerp FC that they are still aiming high. So the question is: what is still possible?

If The Great Old can win at home against Union, they will close the gap to fifteen points. After halving the points, the gap will only be eight points larger, which suddenly seems like a lot is still possible.


“The big clubs want to get rid of the halving of points, and I think football fans do too,” Emke Courtois is clear in her analysis in Sunday. “I understand them in a way. It's a distortion of the competition a little bit.”

Distortion of competition according to Emeke Courtois

“Fans are often fans of one team. It's hard to explain to them that the halving makes the play-offs interesting again for a neutral viewer. Football is entertainment, but it's hard to explain that,” says the analyst.

Antwerp and Union will play against each other on Saturday at 4pm. Before 6pm, we know more about the title battle in the Jupiler Pro League.
