Yes, we did it! KRC Genk Champion 2018/2019!!!!!!!!!
A 1-1 draw away on Anderlecht was enough to seal the deal! Club Brugge did loose away at Standard, which was more or less unexpected! For sure if you do know that Standard got a red card around minute 30. So there was nobody who would have place a bet from that moment that Standard still would win the game! Genk on the other side had an excellent start and came 0-1 ahead in the 9th minute of the game and did dominate the first half but forgot to score their second goal. Like written yesterday this did increase the pressure on Club Brugge. The fans of Brugge did get some hope when Anderlecht equalized but not long after that Standard did get a penalty, destroying all hope! Do you remember that I did write yesterday that the 16th of May could become a special day? On the 16th of May they now have won 2 titles and one cup! But what makes it even more special is that the goal was a result of 16 completed passes in a row! What about that! If I would be a player of KRC Genk I would immediatly request shirt number 16 for next season! But the title has won! Now it is time to celebrate and celebrate! But after that the hard reality will strike! We are financially healthy and don't need outgoing transfer to keep the books in order, for sure not after the qualification for the group phase of the Champions League! But we have to remind ourselves that we are a small club in Europe! So lot's of bigger clubs are interested in our key players and it will be though to keep them together. No doubt that at least 3 of them will make a transfer during the summer transfer window! We do need to hope that some players do want to stay because of the Chamions League. Why miss out on that opportunity? Maybe they will never have another chance of playing in this league! But it also will have a positive effect, we will cash out on the outgoing transfers. And with the qualification in the pocket we are more appealing for the incoming transfers! In the past the season after winning the title was always a nightmare. We never did get ranked higher than position 6! I do hope that next year will be different! But now, let's first enjoy this moment and see what the future brings next week or so! Cheers, Peter

Club Brugge - Anderlecht: does Club remain in the wake of leader Genk?
The 6th match day in Play-Off 1 of the Jupiler Pro League. Club Brugge takes on big rivals Anderlecht at home. At the moment, the Bruges players are in 2nd place with 38 points in the position behind Racing Genk (44 points). RSC Anderlecht is in the 5th place and currently has 27 points.

The West-Flemish were not able to win two games. Club lost on the field of KRC Genk (3-1) and played a draw on the field of Antwerp (0-0). In both games, a penalty phase was to the disadvantage of "Blauw-Zwart". Club Brugge thus lost expensive points in regards of the title fight. Club Brugge still plays at home against leader Genk and can therefore still dream of a second national title in a row. But then the troops of Ivan Leko can no longer lose points. Club Brugge therefore wants to hold the 3 points against Anderlecht. Bet on "Club Brugge is at the forefront and wins the match". This odd is at 2.35. Predict a win from RSCA Anderlecht was working on a good series before the start of the play-offs. It picked up a great 12 out of 15 in the last five games. After a disastrous start of the season, Anderlecht were able to qualify for Play-Off 1 and the fans even dreamed of a new league title. Anderlecht, however, are back with their feet on the ground and, due to a disappointing 1 in 15 in Play-off 1, Brussels residents now have 8 points less than their direct competitor Antwerp. So it seems that next season RSCA will not play European football for the first time in 55 years. A point at Jan Breydel would actually be a real achievement for this Anderlecht. Bet on the double chance bet with a win from Anderlecht or a draw and multiply your bet by 2.35. Overview of the results Latest results: Antwerp 0-0 Club Bruges Anderlecht 0-0 Ghent Latest encounters: Anderlecht 2-3 Club Bruges Anderlecht 2-2 Club Brugge Club Brugge 2-1 Anderlecht Club Brugge 1-2 Anderlecht
