Atypical start

Club Brugge and Racing Genk kick off the Champions’ Play-offs on Sunday, but don’t look for Union this weekend. The team from Brussels will only play for the first time on Wednesday, May 3, because opponent Antwerp will first play the cup final on Sunday. In the Champions’ Play-off, the teams get an uneven start, where Union in particular is screwed. After all, the Brussels club has a shorter preparation than the rest on match day 2, because Club Brugge is already waiting on Saturday 6 May.


Everyone supports Antwerp in the cup final

If Antwerp wins the cup, everyone in the Champions’ Play-offs and the number five in the Europe Play-offs is sure of a European ticket. A jump-off match between the number four of Play-off 1 and the winner of the Europe Play-offs is then superfluous. If KV Mechelen wins the cup on Sunday, that jump-off match will come.

How is everyone doing?

Racing Genk finished first in the regular competition and is therefore already certain of a European ticket. Moreover, thanks to that first place, the Limburgers always have the advantage in a tie with Union and Club Brugge.

However, if Genk or another team ends in a tie with Antwerp, the advantage is always for base number 1. After all, Genk, Union and Club Brugge all ended the regular season with an odd number of points, so that when the points are halved, they lose half a point.
