Zulte Waregem coach Francky Dury had his revenge against his former club AA Gent, where his contract was not extended 2 seasons ago. Playmaker Franck Berrier scored twice for Zulte Waregem.
Oud-Heverlee Leuven surprised KRC Genk. The visitors from Limburg climbed to a 0-2 lead in Leuven, but the home team equalised. Genk, one of the outsiders for the Belgian title, only picked up 2 points from 2 matches.
After 2 rounds of play, only 2 teams still have the maximum of 6 points: vice-champions Club Bruges and Zulte Waregem. Beerschot and newly promoted Charleroi are still without points.
