Bayer Leverkusen and Royal Union Saint-Gilloise are still in balance after their first game in the quarter-finals of the Europa League: 1-1. The winner of the duel between the two Dutch wingers will face Roma or Feyenoord in the semi-finals.

Victor Boniface scored the opening goal after 51 minutes for the visitors to Brussels, who went up in 2021 after a 48-year absence at Belgium’s highest level. This season, Union is again competing for the championship in the Jupiler Pro League, where the play-offs for the title will soon begin with small differences at the top.

Right back Bart Neukop’s team was unable to cross the goal line. Florian Vertz equalized for Bayer Leverkusen in the 82nd minute, as full-back Jeremy Frimpong (Manchester United Transfer Goal) and Mitchell Bakker played the entire game. Becker and Newcube often ran into each other.

Next Thursday (9pm) it’s back, then at Lotto-Park in Anderlecht. The winner of the match between Bayer Leverkusen and Royal Union will compete in the Europa League semi-final against the winner of the duel between Roma and Feyenoord. Arne Slot won the first leg at De Kuip through a goal from midfielder Mats Weaver.
