Leverkusen vs Union St Gilloise 13.04.2023
On Thursday, Bayer Leverkusen will face Union Saint-Gilloise of Belgium in an attempt to gain a first-leg advantage in the UEFA Europa League quarterfinals. After missing the bulk of 2022 due to a torn cruciate ligament, Wirtz has spent no time in showcasing his brilliance, tallying three goals and eight assists in 15 competitive games since his January comeback. Leverkusen defeated Monaco on penalties in the Europa League play-off round thanks to the 19-year-goals old’s in both legs. In the round of 16, Xabi Alonso’s team easily defeated Ferencvaros with a pair of 2-0 victories.
St. Gilloise had not participated in any type of European competition prior to this season since 1964/65. After defeating Union Berlin, a team from the Bundesliga, 6-3 on aggregate in the previous round, the Belgians are now in the Europa League’s round of eight. St. Gilloise are presently second in the Belgian division, led by the highly-touted 14-goal top scorer Victor Boniface, who provided the assist for a 1-1 draw away at Gent over the weekend.
Union Saint-Gilloise are running into Bayer Leverkusen at the wrong time as the First Division A outfit bid to become the first Belgian team to make a European semi-final since 1993. The Bundesliga club have won seven straight games in all competitions, including a 2-1 victory over Rekordmeister Bayern Munich, and should prove too tough a nut for Karel Geraerts’ side to crack at the BayArena.
