The Liverpool team will challenge the Union Saint-Gilloise team in a 2e ronde Europa League in Anfield Stadium, Liverpool on Thursday, October 05, 2023. For streaming coverage of Liverpool vs Union Saint-Gilloise, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Liverpool will host Union Saint-Gilloise at Anfield in the second match of the 2023/24 Europa League group stage. This match will take place on Thursday 5/10/2023 in the afternoon. The Kop is determined to achieve a second victory in this event after beating LASK with a landslide score of 3-1 in the opening match. Meanwhile, Union Saint-Gilloise hopes to steal points at home to their opponents after drawing 1-1 with Toulouse in the previous match.
Liverpool just suffered a 1-2 defeat to Tottenham last weekend in the Premier League. This was a very unfortunate result because they had to play with 9 people after 2 of their players received red cards and only conceded the second goal in the 5th added minute due to Joel Matip’s mistake which made an own goal. This defeat ended Liverpool’s streak of 7 consecutive wins in all competitions.
Even so, the Reds still showed their positive side with a very good performance in the Europa League. In the opening group match this season, they did not need to field their best team but were still able to beat LASK with a landslide score of 3-1 at their opponent’s home ground. Liverpool also have a very impressive home record in this event, having only lost 1 and won 15 of their previous 21 matches.
Union Saint-Gilloise, on the other hand, is in pretty good form in the Belgian domestic league. They have just achieved 3 consecutive wins and are in third place in the standings. However, on the European stage, they still cannot show their true strength. In the opening group match, they had to struggle to get a 1-1 draw against visiting Toulouse, a team that was considered weaker than Liverpool.
For today’s match, Liverpool cannot play the duo Bajcetic and Thiago because both players are injured. Meanwhile, Gakpo’s condition is still unclear. Coach Juergen Klopp will most likely implement a player rotation strategy again like against LASK without worrying that Liverpool will experience problems.
On the visiting team’s side, Castro-Montes and Lapoussin also suffered the same fate as Thiago and Bajcetic. They also had to be absent due to injury. Coach Felice Mazzu may field his best team to face Liverpool, but he also has to consider the fatigue factor due to a busy schedule.
Talking about who will get the three points, Liverpool clearly has many advantages over Union Saint-Gilloise. They have a higher class, play at home and often “bluff” the Belgian representatives. They also have high motivation to improve their image after the defeat to Tottenham.
Union Saint-Gilloise, although in good form, is still unable to compete with Liverpool at European level. They will also face huge pressure playing at Anfield, a stadium that has always been a nightmare for Liverpool’s opponents.
