Jupiler Pro LeagueMission accomplished for FC Brugge, which appears to be ready for the Champions League after the 2-0 win over KV Mechelen. Blauw-Zwart missed opportunities, but nonetheless with a great feeling about the title fight.
No Charles de Kitleri at the club – Schroeder took no risks for fear of a possible suspension on the first day of matches in the playoffs. The club did not want to let the gap with Al Ittihad – which converted three points before the match – become larger. KV Mechelen, in turn, was already sure of participating in the European qualifiers, and there was not much at stake for the visitors.
The score was only 1-0 in favor of the home team in the middle of the match, it was actually half a miracle. The club scored chance after chance before the break, while Rits scored only half an hour later. Adamyan was not particularly sharp – the Armenian had five chances to open the score in the opening half hour. In the Blue and Black match, Lang showed himself to be active and Odoi was injured before the break. Micklin managed to tackle sporadically, but didn’t create any chances.
After the break, the retreat, which had already begun before the break, was significant. Ritz just missed an opportunity imposed to double the lead. Schroeder brought in de Kettler midway through the second half hoping things could turn around again. The club gradually improved, and at the beginning of the last quarter the match began immediately. Skov Olsen got the ball at his feet in a promising position and did what his teammates – especially Adamian – failed to do throughout the match. 2-0 to the club, progress is no longer in danger. And de Kettleri saw that his goal in the substitution was canceled due to offside
The club also won its last game and took 24 out of 24. The perfect report since mid-February – and whether the Blue and Black look set to seek their third consecutive league title in the playoffs. The battle for a European ticket in the European qualifiers awaits Mechelen.
