Charleroi was set as a favorite in their away game to Eupen and even took the lead in the fifth minute via a goal from Fall, but didn't manage to continue in the same manner. Five minutes later their hosts have leveled up the result thanks to Musona.
The game looked a bit more interesting in the first halftime, with the guests having a bit more concrete chances and looking sharp in the offense. However, as time progressed it seemed like none of the teams was really willing to take the risk.
Still, it was Charleroi who created slightly more, but not enough in order to make the scoreline change. Even though it's a slight setback considering the previous results and table position, they continued their great undefeated run of twelve matches in the Jupiler League.
They currently stand at the fifth position with six points more than out of playoff zoned teams. At the same time, it's just two points less than second-placed Gent.
Forward Delfi is a long-term absentee for the hosts without performing so far in the season anyway, while they also miss midfielder Diandy (13/0) and forward Niane (4/0).
Club Brugge KV comes from a similar setback since they took just a point in a 2:2 game last weekend on the road to Kortrijk. However, in this case, it's only themselves who should be blamed for such an outcome.
They have taken the lead in the eight-minute via Deli and maintained the momentum even taking the two goals to lead thanks to a goal from Ricca in the 39th minute. However, they got reduced in the next moments via a goal from Mboyo.
It was them who looked like controlling the first halftime more but got reduced in one of the rare chances in the first part, while the second halftime was spent in an almost completely one-sided game in their favor.
The hosts scored at the start of the repetition via Moffi, while the remained with a lot more of the ball possession but not creating even close enough in order to get the scoreline change. Some chances came, but the defensive reliability of the hosts looked way better in the second halftime.
In any way, Club Brugge KV remained leading the table confidently, now with eight points more than the second-placed Gent and remain that red hot favorite to clinch the title.
Striker Dennis (16/5) and midfielder Diatta (16/5) are injured and out for the guests.
No doubt that Club Brugge remains a favorite and should get the victory. However, it's one of the games where the hosts should be able to get involved as much as possible.
After all, they are undefeated for twelve matches and do inspire with confidence in their home games - regarding efficiency too. Goals do look very likely, even goal festival this time wouldn't surprise me much.
