The battle for the league title can start all over again, as favourites Standard and Club Brugge both failed this weekend, and as number 3 and 4, Zulte Waregem and Anderlecht, clawed their way back into the title race (photo: Anderlecht youngster Youri Tielemans celebrating).
Zulte Waregem grabbed their last chance at the Gaverbeek (West Flanders) downing leaders Standard 2-0. This gave Club Brugge the chance to take the lead for the first time this season, both the West-Flemings were humiliated by Anderlecht. A reborn Brussels side was leading 3-0 after 40 minutes and put the lock on the match in the second half.
In the final match in Play-off 1, Lokeren and RC Genk drew 1-1. After 2 of 10 days of play in these round-robin finals, Standard have the lead with 37 points. Club Brugge (35), Zulte Waregem (33) and Anderlecht (32) are not far behind though.
Club Brugge have a tough game ahead next weekend at neighbours Zulte Waregem, while Standard travel to Limburg to play Genk. Lokeren host Anderlecht.
