One valid goal, three goals disallowed
In a match that saw no fewer than three goals be disallowed, Club Brugge enjoyed a 0-1 win away at AA Gent. Club Brugge’s goal came from Match Rits on 33 minutes.
AA Gent had two goals correctly disallowed, whether what would have been Club Brugge’s second goal of the evening should have been annulled is open to debate. With three matches left to play Club Brugge trail the league-leaders KRC Genk by 6 points.
The championship race could well be decided in Bruges next Sunday when Club Brugge take on KRC Genk.
