Club Brugge secure Champions League passage
Club Brugge clinched a place in the qualifying stages of next season's UEFA Champions League after a 2-1 win at Genk secured them second place in the Jupiler League Championship play-off on Thursday.
Genk took the lead through Jelle Vossen after 24 minutes but Brugge made sure of the win thanks to goals by Maxime Lestienne (45) and Joseph Akpala (80).
The win leaves Brugge all alone in second place, four points clear of third-spotted Genk, and also four points behind champions Anderlecht, who won the title on Sunday but suffered a hangover today as they went down to a 2-0 defeat at KV Kortrijk, Ernest Webnje Nfor (11) and Mustapha Oussalah (36) with the goals.
In the day's other game, Standard Liege defeated Gent 2-1. Gent took the lead through Christian Bruls after 11 minutes, but Standard secured the points with goals by Luis Seijas (44) and Serge Gakpe (74).
