Union Saint-Gilloise vs Toulouse match preview

One of two opening day fixtures in Europa League Group E is set to play out at The Joseph Marien Stadium on Thursday, September 21st.

The matchup in question will see Union Saint-Gilloise act as hosts, in a meeting with Toulouse.

Beginning with the former, Belgian outfit Union have endured a largely hit-and-miss opening to the new campaign.

Alexander Blessin’s troops kicked things into gear in impressive fashion, rattling off a trio of successive victories in the Pro League.

Not only that, but they cruised past Lugano to book their spot in the Europa League’s group stages, too, racking up three goals without reply over the tie’s two legs.

And yet, Union will head into Thursday’s action with confidence likely to be lacking in the camp.

Most recently, in their return to action post-international break at the weekend, Blessin and co. were put to the sword by two goals to nil, at home to Genk.

Turning attentions towards this evening’s visitors, though, Toulouse, too, have struggled for consistency across the early weeks of the term.

Like Union, Les Violets kickstarted their season in ideal fashion, courtesy of a 2-1 Ligue 1 triumph at Nantes.

Since, however, they have failed to notch a single victory more.

Instead, a defeat has been accompanied by a trio of draws, leaving Carles Martínez Novell and co. sitting in a lowly 13th in the French top-flight.

Toulouse’s latest stalemate did at least come in credible fashion, though, away to Olympique de Marseille this past weekend.

So, all of this taken into consideration, how do we at 101 envision Thursday’s action playing out in Brussels?

Though hosts Union should probably be considered narrow favourites, we are backing an eventual sharing of the spoils between the two sides.
