Excitement and goals in Sunday evening’s games

Despite no fewer than 8 goals being scored in Sunday evening’s two Belgian First Division games, there were no winners or losers. The match between the league-leaders Club Brugge and second-placed Sporting Charleroi ended in a 3-3 draw. Later in the evening the match between Zulte Waregem and KV Oostende end 1-1.

There was no repeat of the drubbing Sporting Charleroi were given by Club Brugge in the quarter final of the Belgian Cup three weeks ago. In a hard-fought game Ilaimaharitra opened the scoring on 23 minute for the visitors.

However, Sporting Charleroi’s joy was short-lived and Club Brugge drew level through Limbombe 2 minutes later. Sporting Charleroi went 2-1 on 31 minutes through Hendrickx and the half ended 2-1 to Sporting Charleroi.

The second half was just 5 minutes old when Vanaken equalised for Club Brugge. Wesley put them 3-2 up on 74 minutes. However, Razael’s equaliser on 80 minutes made for a final score of 3-3.

The Charleroi keeper Penneteau made some excellent save in difficult circumstances. Club Brugge should be ashamed of some of their fans for the racial abuse they hurled at Sporting Charleroi’s N’Ganga.

The result sees no change at all at the top. Club Brugge are still first with 58 points from 25 games. Sporting Charleroi are 2nd with 47 points.

All square between Zulte Waregem and KVO

In the last match of the weekend goals from Olayinka for Zulte Waregem on 25 minutes and for KV Oostende’s Akpala on 33 minutes made for a final score of 1-1. The result sees KV Oostende end the weekend 14th with 26 points from 25 games. Zulte Waregem are 12th with 28 points.
