Nigerian striker David Okereke fired home Club Brugge’s third goal after Noa Lang had given the home side a two-goal advantage few minutes into the second half of the matchday 19 fixture.
Deep inside the second half, Noa Lang, scorer of the two goals stole the ball from the defenders of Eupen as they were trying to launch a quick attack.
Lang crossed the ball to locate David Okereke, who had the simplest of tappings to make, increasing their lead to three goals.
The Nigerian who’s been one of the most outstanding performers at the Jupiler Pro league club came on as the second substitute in the 80th minute of the game.
The home side dominated the match entirely without giving much space for Eupen attackers to operate in their half.
Club Brugge went ahead after quick counter-attack was made by the home, even as a long ball was crossed into the visitors half, locating Noa Lang who had to struggle with the ball before putting it beyond the goalkeeper.
Another quick assist from de Ketelaere allowed Noa Lang to increase Club Brugge’s lead to two.
A fellow compatriot who was making the headlines last season was an unused substitute in the game, even as head coach of Club Brugge Clement preferred the 23-year old Nigerian.
