Club Brugge’s 3-0 victory against Zulte Waregem sees the West Flemings move back into second place in the table.

Kouemaha sealed Zulte Waregem’s fate on 57 minutes when he made it 3-0 to Club Brugge.

Everything rides on the final game

Club Brugge’s win against Zulte Waregem and AA Gent’s draw away against Sint-Truiden, means that the Buffaloes must beat the West Flemings on Saturday if they are to finish second and secure a place in the qualifying round of next season’s Champion League.

The score remain 1-0 to the visitors until 7 minutes from time when Sint-Truiden was awarded a penalty after Thijs fouled Delorge inside the box.

Sébastien Siani’s spot-kick levelled the score.

Champions have an easy ride

First half goals from Van Damme and Boussoufa and a Badibanga effort six minutes from time were enough to give the new Belgian Champion’s Sporting Anderlecht a 3-1 win away at KV Kortrijk.

Kortrijk’s goal came from Benteke four minutes into the second half.
