This is Belgian property, which is less juicy than tomato shrimp, but it's too hard to live! Although the Champions League group phase is only halfway (and even after lottery), the Belgian Champion takes out a calculator to calculate his odds for the 3rd place. qualify 1/1 in the European League and determine the best strategy to avoid being completely in the game.
And yet, if this week Montreal Group A gathered in Bruges this week (18:55), where even the famous cliff does not remember the last victory (1st to 3rd Nantes, August 11!), And that Borussia Dortmund continues the success of Atlético Madrid (or check it out there), the second place that will remain in C1 rails will be Zwart Blauw's reach.

In other words, in Bruges, it is now or never. We have to clean the table for 90 minutes and extra time, the title duel with Genk (and Anderlecht?), Forget the trip to Charleroi on Saturday, and give everything to come close to the crisis in AS Monaco, instead of making it short in the direction of a possible renewal.
