One of the nice things about being in the Europa League this season, is that Liverpool gets to face a number of new and different team, some of whom they have not played before.

Liverpool welcome Union Saint-Gilloise to Anfield on Thursday night - in what will be the first meeting between the two sides.  Unless you're an expert on Belgium football, you probably won't know too much about tomorrow's opponents - so 'LFC - Back On Our Perch' have compiled the following information : 

Club Name : Royale Union Saint-Gilloise - shortened to Union Saint-Gilloise or Union SG
Club Founded : 1st November 1897
Home City : Forest, a municipality of Brussels
Home Stadium : Joseph Marien Stadium
Stadium Capacity : 9,400
First Team Manager : Alexander Blessin
League Titles : 11, most recently 1934-35
Belgium Cup Titles : 2, most recently 1913-14
League Position in 2022-23 season : 3rd

Although Union SG are one of the most successful clubs in Belgium football history, most of their success came before WWII.   After the War, the club fell into decline, and up until 2021 the club was in the Second Division.  After returning to the top division, Union SG have performed well, narrowly missing out on the Title in their first season back in the top flight, before finishing 3rd last season.

In European competition last season, Union SG reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

Lifelong fan with a passion for all things Liverpool. First memory of football is watching John Barnes score a dramatic last minute equaliser in the FA Cup when he was 4. Feels lucky to be a part of the 'Klopp' era.
