Union believes that the strong player will miss the confrontation against Anderlecht

Union believes that the strong player will miss the confrontation against Anderlecht

Within the title race in the Champions Qualifiers, another key match is scheduled for Sunday evening. After that, RSC Anderlecht and Union SG will compete against each other. But then the visitors will have to miss an important pawn.

Union have had an impressive run since their promotion, narrowly missing out on the title in each of the past two seasons. For a long time it seemed like this would happen this year after all. The people of Brussels won the regular competition with 70 points out of 90. But then the points were halved and Union also started with 0 out of 6 in buy points.

Anderlecht returned to the top of the Belgian league this season after finishing in a painful eleventh place last season. In the end the Purple & White team finished second in the regular competition and were described by most observers as a union contender. But with an unconvincing win over Antwerp and a loss to Club Brugge, RSCA also started the play-offs poorly.

No Labussin

There is a lot at stake on Sunday. For example, Anderlecht could go top of the rankings for the first time in a long time. But then he must overcome the Union. This has not been possible since their promotion. Both teams have played each other nine times since then. Al-Ittihad won eight times, and the last confrontation ended in a draw.

They want to continue their unbeaten run on Sunday at Lotto Park. Although Union will not go down with more confidence after 0 out of the last 6. Moreover, coach Alexander Plesin is missing an important force. Strongman Loic Labussin must lose due to calf issues.

New joker

Christian Borges, in turn, is there. After last week's real series, the English defender can play as usual. In addition, Kevin Rodriguez returns to the Belesin team after weeks of injuries. The Ecuadorian striker is there for the first time since the previous match against Anderlecht at the end of last January. He could become an important wild card in a title fight.
