Club Bruges had to swallow 3 goals against FC Copenhagen in the Europa League last Wednesday, losing the game 2-3 after having climbed ahead twice? Bruges lost their ticket for the next round in the final part of the match.
Bruges knew that their visit to KV Mechelen was not going to be an easy one. KV Mechelen or "Malinwa" have a strong home reputation and were hoping to catch a big name.

Club Bruges, only one of two teams left with the maximum of 6 points, lose their first points of the season.
The other team with a perfect record this season, was Zulte Waregem, but the West-Flemings failed to move past Beerschot in Antwerp. In other action, KV Kortrijk were surprised by newcomers Charleroi (0-1), while RAEC Mons and Lierse drew 1-all.
