Match preview

This may be Royale Union Saint-Gilloise’s first European campaign since 1964, but you wouldn’t know it.

Last Thursday, these two teams met at Estádio Municipal de Braga, with the hosts taking the lead through Abel Ruiz.

Nevertheless, Gustaf Nilsson struck in the 86th and then 94th minutes as Union SG left Portugal 2-1 winners, sparking wild celebrations.

So, amazingly, Karel Geraerts’ team are still on maximum points in Group D, having won 1-0 in Berlin and then 2-1 at home to Malmö.

As mentioned, les Unionistes hadn’t played in UEFA competition for 58 years before this season, but another victory here could rubber stamp top spot.

Braga too were on maximum points prior to that shock home defeat seven nights ago.

The Archbishops have featured in 13 group stages since 2006, reaching the Europa League Final in 2011 and the quarter-finals back in April.

So, can Artur Jorge’s team spoil the Union SG party at Den Dreef?
