The Belgian Cup winner with this three-pointer, climbed to 2nd place, which as it is known leads to the Champions League qualifiers. Coach Van den Brom was really satisfied with their play and today the valuable midfielder Heynen (24/2) returns from suspension and together with the top scorer Onuachu (34/30) will have a deadly tandem in the attack.
Club Brugge faced several problems in the playoff premiere against Anderlecht and should feel happy that they avoid a defeat. Despite the loss of points, they are still considered the undisputed favorite to win the championship with plus 8 points from the 2nd place. Today right back Mata (34/1) returns from suspension, while midfielder Balanta (21/1) recovered and was included in the squad. The only absence is the left-back Ricca (14/0). With Dost (14/9), Lang (25/15), and de Ketelaere (33/3) at the top of the attack, they will make big trouble to Genk defense and expect an open match with a lot of goals on both sides.
