The 3-2 win at Anderlecht was the first win for rival from Brussels in over two decades!
In the match against Liège, the FCB can now also put on his home strength, but in the meantime, in the last few weeks decreased slightly. So Bruges conceded two of his three Heimpleiten in the main season in 2019. With the RSC Charleroi and Royal Excel Mouscron these were also against opponents who did not even make it into the top six for the championship round.

Liège beat FC Antwerp at home in Maurice Dufrasne Stadium. However, in the light of the gameplay, the memories of the last year came up again, because the match was shot thanks to a great morale in the last 20 minutes. Playfully superior standard was also anyway.
Last Wednesday, the team of Michel Preud’homme made a guest appearance at KAA Gent and took home the next three with a 2-1 win. A success, but this time it turned out very happy because the Flemish neighbor was at least equal and the decisive goal by the Romanian Razvan Marin fell in the 90th minute, moreover in the form of a penalty. The 22-year-old will not play for the Walloons next season, as his move to Ajax Amsterdam was announced just one day after the match. Especially outside strong Liège has not presented in the regular season otherwise. This is because the Rouges made the best home team, but played away only average on the outside. Only five wins succeeded Liège in the 15 appearances during this phase of the season.
