Before the urgent postponement of the Belgian First division A (Jupiler Pro) League due to the pandemic coronavirus that has hit the world by storm, Club Brugge was meant to play their last regular game of the season against Kas Eupen in the league and then on Tuesday take on Royal Antwerp in the final of the Belgian Cup.
Unfortunately, both games had to be postponed.
Club Brugge has been a dominant force in Belgium this season leading the top tier with 70 points after 29 games played and 15 points clear of second place Gent.
The format of the League in Belgium is that after the regular 30 games where all 16 top tier teams play each other twice the top 6 teams go into the ‘title play-offs’ where they play one another home and away to decide who ultimately takes the title.
When teams go into the play-offs they continue from where they left off in the regular season the difference is that it’s only the top 6 teams that compete at the stage while the bottom teams compete in the Europa League PlayOffs.
Club Brugge already has an advantage going to the title play-offs and if their dominance is to continue they should be able to go all the way to win the League tittle at the end of the season.
The second chance for Brugge to clinch silverware is in the Belgian cup (Croky cup) where they are set to take on Royal Antwerp in the final of the competition as they hope to do a double this season.
The 25-year-old South African attacker Tau has played a total of 30 games so far this season for Club Brugge in all competitions scoring four times and registering eight assists to his name for the run away log leaders.
The former Mamelodi Sundowns man has had the season of his dreams having featured in both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa league this season for Club Brugge featuring against big clubs in Europe like Real Madrid , Paris Saint-Germain, Galatasaray and Manchester United which has been good for his development and experience as he continues to fight to push to be amongst the top players to have been exported to Europe from our shores.
Tau will be hoping that between the league and the cup he is able to come away with a piece of silverware as his loan move from English Premier League side Brighton Hove and Albion comes to an end in June.
The dates of the games have not been announced yet as the world is currently dealing with a global crisis in the #COVID19 virus but when the action gets back underway in the near future #FARPost will be keeping a close eye in the developments in Belgium as we hope that Tau joins a club of South African players to have won silverware overseas.
