Genk and Cercle Brugge rub hands after Union SG win the Cup – Football News

Union Saint-Gilloise won his award. This will likely have immediate consequences for a number of other teams. Genk and Cercle Brugge can already rub their hands.

Union won the Belgian Cup against Antwerp, which also brought about a change in the allocation of European places. The Belgian Cup qualifies you for the European League.

Normally, third place in the competition – which Union currently holds – qualifies for a ticket to the second qualifying round of the Europa League. This is the fourth best ticket awarded in Belgium.

By winning the Kroki Cup for the first time in 110 years, RUSG secured at least the third best ticket, the one that gives direct access to the Europa League qualifiers, the fourth round, i.e. the last one before the group stage.

Fifth of the competition in Europe?

If Union finishes in the top three (eight points behind Genk with three games remaining, chances are high), fourth in the competition will immediately qualify for the second qualifying round of the Europa League.

This means that the fifth, i.e. Genk, Cercle Brugge or Antwerp, will compete with the winner of the Europa Ghent play-off for the ticket to the second qualifying round of the Conference League. Genk (34 points) and Cercle Brugge (33 points) can dream of a direct European ticket.
