Bruges (AP) – The next Champions League opponent of Borussia Dortmund, FC Brugge, has missed the hoped-for home victory in the Belgian elite division.
Despite a 2-0 lead, the 16-time champion did not get further than a 2: 2 (2: 1) against outsider KV Mechelen. Ruud Vormer with a beautifully transformed free kick (13th minute) and Noa Lang (28th) put the hosts ahead. But Igor de Camargo (42nd) and Rob Schoofs (81st) gave the guests an unexpected point win. Bruges also missed the possible jump to the top of the Jupiler League table.
On the 3rd group match day of the premier class, the Belgians will receive BVB next Wednesday (4 November / 9 pm).
