Cercle back in the winning mood

In what was the first on this weekend’s eight Belgian First Division games Cercle Brugge won for the first time in 5 games. The West Flemings enjoyed a 2-1 victory at home against Sporting Charleroi on Friday evening.

The result sees Cercle Brugge that won promotion to the Belgian First division at the end of last season leapfrog over Sporting Charleroi into 9th place.

Cercle open the scoring on 31 minutes through Dylan de Belder. However, the home side’s joy was short-lived as Victor Osimhen equalized for Charleroi just a minute later. The turning point in the match came when Sporting Charleroi’s Francisco Martos put the ball past his own keeper to put Cercle Brugge 2-1 up. Charleroi never recovered and the 3 points stayed in Bruges.

After 9 games Cercle Brugge are 9th with 12 points. Sporting Charleroi have 11 points and are 10th.
