Anderlecht vs Club Brugge: 3-2

The equaliser came 12 minutes later when Vadis Odjidja Ofoe scored in the 19th minute.

The visiting team upped the ante in the second half when Dorge Kouemaha scored Club Brugge's second goal in the 59th minute.

Nicolás Frutos showed that Anderlecht were still in the running, equalising in the 74th minute, but then it was probably not so difficult to be back in the running after Ronald Vargas was handed a red card.

Even with Club Brugge down one man the match looked set to end in a draw with both teams splitting the points.
