Bass Friend’s goal (54th) put Blauw and Zwart back in second place with 48 points, nine less than Union and one more than Antwerp (third). Anderlecht (42 points) is in fourth place. Kortrijk is ranked 9th (34 points).
In Kortrijk, Faiz Selemani returned to the team, while Bruges’ side, Noah Lange, infected with the coronavirus, was absent, as was newcomer Skov Olsen, who suffered a groin problem. The Carells shook the Apérons d’Or stadium straight away and he nearly opened the scoring by Dylan Mboyo, who saw his shot being deflected by Jack Hendry and his rebound pass was wide (2nd). Although silent, the Bruges men came out in front of the opposing goal and Friend missed a big chance (8th).
