Club Brugge was unable to recover after the lost cup final against Antwerp last Saturday. On the contrary, Sporting Charleroi took the full advantage of Jan Breydel. Blauw-Zwart thus starts the season with a big false note.
And with that defeat on the opening matchday, Club ends up in a not too nice list. For example, in the last 20 years there were barely 4 teams that played champions only to lose the first game the following season, according to The last news.
Anderlecht signed for this unfortunate fact twice, in 2005 and 2014. Mouscron and Lokeren showed themselves to be the better ones. Once it was the turn of Racing Genk. They lost to the same Lokeren in 2003.
