Club Brugge suffered a painful defeat when they visited Union SG. As a result, the gap in the rankings widens even further: already twelve points. There has been a lot of criticism among supporters about how Blue-Black presents itself.
Club Brugge visited Union SG with three of the same type of players: Nielsen, Balanta and Odoi. Fans collectively thought this was a strange decision on Dilla’s part.
Eder Balanta in particular was treated harshly in the whole matter. He was substituted shortly after the break and we can call that a freedom from suffering.
According to many analysts and supporters on social media, the defensive midfielder is simply not enough for the Jupiler Pro League.
A painful note with which they also look at the blackboard. In the winter mercato, in addition to the centre-back, perhaps something will also be needed in the midfield?
How can you play with Balanta, Nielsen and Odoi together??? In my opinion, these are basically 3 of the same type of player, i.e. dominant defensive midfielders… that’s too many… hence no contact with the striker… Tactical drama – Philippe Hautekiet (@PhHautekiet) November 5, 2023
Balanta is a cleaner, and the butcher doesn’t have to do a lot of football, but he has to make sure he has people around who can do it

All due respect to the Warrior Palanta, but he is too short in football for Club Brugge. The big problem in my opinion is not playing on the wings because the wing attackers always come inside. This means there is no rush hour show, no matter who you put there. And Zickernagel 1/2

Pain in the eyes. There is no ability (outside of) football. But what the hell do you expect with this defense + Palanta and Nielsen? #USGCLU
