Union St Gilloise to make late decision about Teddy Teuma for Union Berlin clash

Union St Gilloise are going into their Europa League clash with Union Berlin with uncertainty surrounding their talismanic captain Teddy Teuma. The Maltese international is suffering from a calf injury he picked up during the weekends win over Eupen. As reported by Voetbalkrant, Union head coach Karel Geraerts said that Teuma will train on the day of the game and they will wait to see how his calf reacts. The side have a huge top of the table clash with Genk coming up this weekend, as well as the second leg against Union. They may well decide not to risk their captain in order to be able to use him in those two games.

Under Geraerts Union are once again challenging for the league title. The young coach took over from Felice Mazzu in the summer, and has for many turned the side into an even better one than last seasons that narrowly missed out on the league title to Club Brugge. Despite losing key players in Capser Nielsen and Denis Undav in the summer, Union are sitting in second place.

During the winter transfer window they also lost top scorer Dante Vanzeir, but acted quickly to bring in Yorbe Vertessen from PSV Eindhoven on loan until the end of the season. Vertessen scored his second goal for Union at the weekend, giving him two gaols and two assists since he joined the Brussels based side.
