No more cup hopes for Union this year. Progressing into this round, Union had to make a perilous journey behind Malinese enemy lines.
Our team changed its lineup compared to previous outings and took the game by the scruff of the neck. However, they were quickly taken back by the first Malinese chance, which resulted in a goal for Shved 1-0. After recovering from this backlash, Union continued its momentum and took control of the game into the second half. However after 3 substitutions, Mechelen doubled the lead, and our team was forced to give everything they had. Vanzeir gave us hope by scoring on the 81st minute 2-1 and despite a few opportunities, Union could not find the equalizer.
