The match opened the 16th day of play in the top flight. Club Brugge played a poor match, which seemed to end a goalless draw, when Sint-Truiden substitute Djené caused an unnecessary penalty. Jelle Vossen took his responsibility and didn't miss: 0-1.
The result allows Club Brugge to reduce the gap with leaders Zulte Waregem to 3 points. Zulte will be playing Anderlecht in a summit match on Sunday. Sint-Truiden remain in dire straits meanwhile at the bottom of the table.
