Bad news for Club Brugge: Clinton Mata may be out for the title match at Antwerp. The defender had to be substituted for Union with a hamstring strain and is highly doubtful.

Junior Verbeeke

Clinton Mata’s buttock didn’t look too good on Wednesday night. The defender’s leg was already wrapped up tightly for the match, but after 55 minutes his game was over. The verdict, a hamstring strain, and probably out for Sunday’s title match against Antwerp. If Mata got fit, it would be half a miracle. Because the move to the Bosuil is already on the agenda in three days.

Again with Hendry

Of course Mata’s injury is a downer, but Schreuder has plenty of alternatives in the back. Jack Hendry, for example, did not leave a bad impression after months of sitting on the bench and Stanley Nsoki returns from suspension. If it doesn’t work out for Maa, the Hendry-Mechele-Nsoki trio will appear at the kick-off against Antwerp. The medical staff of Club Brugge will do everything they can to prepare him for the coming days. Whether that succeeds is another matter.
