An­der­lecht cham­pi­ons again

New Straits Times - - Sport -

BRUS­SELS: An­der­lecht claimed a record-ex­tend­ing 34th Bel­gian league ti­tle after com­ing from a goal down at half­time to beat Charleroi 3-1 away on Thurs­day.

Lukasz Teodor­czyk re­turned to the side to score twice as An­der­lecht won their first ti­tle since 2014.

They would have fin­ished first even if they had lost as sec­ond placed Club Bruges’s reign ended when they fell to a 2-1 de­feat at Oos­tende.

Ghent’s 5-2 win over Zulte Waregem moved them to within one point of Bruges, who host Ghent in their last game to­mor­row with a Cham­pi­ons League qual­i­fy­ing berth at stake. Reuters
