here’s how Club Brugge could celebrate their 18th title this Sunday at Antwerp

Before popping the champagne, the ‘Blauw & Zwart’ will first have to do the work on the field of Antwerp, which remains on two losses against Anderlecht (0-4 and 2-1) and is already guaranteed to finish fourth and last.

With a three-point lead over Union Saint-Gilloise, the Club will be assured of the crown if they win at the Antwerp side. Otherwise, Alfred Schreuder’s players will then have their eyes glued to the Brussels derby between Anderlecht and Union (6:30 p.m.).

In the event of a tie or defeat, Bruges will have to hope that the Union suffers the same fate in Anderlecht. The Saint-Gillois, they will have to bounce back after the two defeats suffered against Bruges (0-2 and 1-0) and will hope for a boost from Antwerp to keep a chance of dreaming of the title.

If Antwerp and Union win, the Saint-Gillois will be tied on points with Bruges, who will keep the lead because USG benefited from a rounding up when dividing the points by two.

The Unionists will also have to look behind them because Anderlecht could still steal second place from them. Assured of third place after their two successes against Antwerp, the RSCA hopes to continue their momentum and clinch their first victory this season against their neighbor Brussels.

In the Europe Playoffs, La Gantoise can secure first place if they do not lose to Genk (4:00 p.m.). Winners of the Cup, the Buffalos would then ensure a European ticket to Antwerp, which should not play in the dam.

On Saturday, Charleroi had won its first victory in these playoffs by beating Mechelen (3-2).
