It was a stop for our Unionists. After 18/18 including some spectacular victories, OHL found themselves winning at Marien.
Despite the domination from Union, the Leuven team found the chink in our armor for the first time before the quarter-hour after a smart free-kick by Casper De Norre (0-1). Union tried, crossed, and attacked but Maertens gave his team a double advantage at half-time (0-2).
With Mitoma coming onto the pitch, everyone expected to see a similar scenario to that of Seraing. Five minutes after entering the game, our Japanese sensation hit home (1-2): our Unionists doubled their efforts but an unexpected counter-attack by OHL finished us off (1-3).
Next week, Union will be playing again on Friday, at 8:45PM. We’ll be going to Sint-Truiden for our next away visit.
The week after, the second round of the Jupiler Pro League will begin. Get your mini-subscription, these Second-half season tickets will be on sale from Monday to Friday (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) at the Club House or online!
