The winger cut out Albert Sambi Lokonga, then turned away from Elias Cobbaut and put the ball in the far corner in a controlled manner. Unfortunately for the mercenary, it was not enough to give Bruges a victory in Brussels.

Just like Vandenbempt, former player Gert Verheyen is full of praise for the development that Lang is going through in Bruges. “He didn’t need any help with that goal and forced it all on his own. Past Lokonga with a cap movement, a pirouette to eliminate Cobbaut and put it in next to the post. His seventh or eighth touch in seven or eight minutes. some luck, but of course you also have to have the guts and the quality. ” The last news Lang also saw excel against Anderlecht and as a reward the winger rented out by Ajax receives the highest score from the Belgian newspaper: 8.

Despite the defeat against Anderlecht, Bruges remains the undisputed leader in the Pro League, with 73 points from 33 matches. Number two Racing Genk is behind by no less than seventeen points.
