    Has Club Brugge really won? I can’t see this news anywhere else. Genk still have to play Brugge on Sunday 3 points adrift but with better GD. (See table below). Pls. reconfirm

      Goals for or against doesn’t decide who wins the league in Belgium,incase there is a tie like you mention above in the championship play off, the Team that won the regular league season become the champion,that’s why it’s brugge because they won the regular season,hope this explains it better.

        Thanks bro. I have been looking for this clarity from everywhere.

      I am confused myself because I reckon Genk has all to play for as all they have to do is win on Sunday and with a higher goal difference should finish as champions.But with this news on complete sports I’m really confused perhaps head to head rules from the first stage of the league where in favour of club Brugge.There must be something we don’t know which may have gone in favour of club Brugge.
      Meanwhile,I supported Genk to win the league obviously because of the two Nigerians Onuachu especially for all his efforts for the team would have been a good sent forth for the beanpole striker who has exceeded expectations in his breakthrough season,as he prepares to move on.

      Was also confused when I saw the headline, and read through the report. Club Brugge is ahead with 3 points but Genk has a higher goal difference, and both sides will clash on Sunday in the last game of the championship round. If Genk wins by any margin whatsoever, there’ll top the table. So how then can Club Brugge be declared champions? I advise Completesports to conduct their due diligence and retract the report if necessary.

      Goals for or against doesn’t count in Belgium guys, where there is a tie in the championship playoff like the scenario given above,the winner of the regular season is the champion,remember Brugge was the winner of the regular season in Belgium, hence they are the champions regardless of what happen in the last match against Genk,best scenario will be Genk winning which doesn’t matter they will both tie but with Brugge winning the regular season,they are already champion

    The news is not real. The final match on Sunday will decide
