Competition: Pro League

Market: Royale Union win

Odds: 7/10 @ 1xBet

Looking to officially wrap up a Champions League ticket on Sunday evening, Royale Union will welcome Genk to the Joseph Marien Stadium.

Starting with the hosts, while Royale Union might have eventually fallen short in their bid to claim a first domestic crown since 1935, Alexander Blessin’s men are signing off this year’s campaign with a real flurry. Knowing that three points on Sunday would be enough to book a lucrative Champions League return, Les Unionistes are unbeaten in all of their previous six Pro League appearances. Last seen claiming a 2-1 victory away at Cercle Brugge, the Yellows are enjoying their most fruitful spell since returning from March’s international break. Looking to make a final statement here, the former Genoa boss should be smelling a potential opportunity this weekend. Signing off April with a stellar 4-1 romp against Antwerp, Royale Union have collected seven points from their last three Pro League showdowns at the Joseph Marien Stadium. It should also be highlighted, Blessin’s side have registered consecutive clean sheets in front of their own supporters for the first time since opening 2024.

As for the visitors, although Genk might have made a crucial return to winning ways last week as they secured a 1-0 victory at home against Antwerp, the Blues have drastically struggled to find any kind of stability over the past month. Opening up their final Pro League showdown of the season holding just a one-point buffer from slipping out of the final European spot, interim boss Domenico Olivieri has seen his squad lose four of their previous five appearances against top-flight opposition. Opening May with a shock 4-1 defeat at the hands of Cerlce Brugge, Genk have also shown some rather glaring issues on the road. Including a 4-0 drumming against Club Brugge on April 24th, Sunday’s guests have lost all of their last three Pro League matchups away from the Cegeka Arena by an aggregate score of 10-2. Meeting a Royale Union squad who are on the cusp of booking a Champions League return, we are expecting a home victory here.
