Vrancken sees opportunities: “Union title favorite? Yes, but…”

Leader Union SG starts its title hunt in the Champions’ Play-Offs on Monday evening. The people of Brussels will then visit KRC Genk. The Limburgers, in turn, want to make a fresh start after an otherwise disappointing season.

Racing has remained far below expectations in recent months. The European campaign immediately turned out to be a deception. In the Croky Cup, Genk was defeated by second division KV Oostende. And the vice-champion also made many mistakes in the competition.

But in the end the Limburgers were able to qualify for the most important play-off. They still want to give their disappointing season a little color. A favorable European ticket is the minimum goal.

Efficiency is decisive

And so it is important to get off to a good start right away, especially considering the backlog in the standings. However, that will not be easy against Union. After all, the people of Brussels have to win after the previous victory over pursuer Anderlecht.

However, Genk coach Wouter Vrancken emphasizes that his team has already done well against the leader this season. “We played two decent matches against them in the competition. We won there. We also played reasonably well at home and gave little away. Efficiency was the deciding factor,” the club website said.

Intense matches

In any case, Union started the play-offs from pole position. Vrancken therefore names them as title favorites, but purely for mathematical reasons. “Union is very steadfast, stable and efficient. Are they title favorites? Yes, but simply because they have the most points. Favorite or underdog, these are just concepts that are fun to write about. I think these will still be very intense matches.” become.”
