Club Brugge face Charleroi at 6 pm today. Have a look at some Club Facts below.
Kaveh Rezaei will face his previous team this evening. The 26-year-old attacker started this season at Mambourg and scored three league goals for the team before joining the Blues at the end of August. For the moment the Iranian international is working hard to achieve his best level. He already proved to be strong in duels, to be quick and to be a killer in front of the goal. Until two seasons ago he played for the Iranian vice-champion Esteghal FC where he was the most productive player of the team with seven goals and eight assists.
Victor Osimhen is the substitute of Kaveh Rezaei at Charleroi. The 19-year-old striker has been playing for the German team Wolfsburg since 2017 and joined Charleroi on loan. He won the World Cup in 2015 with the Nigerian U17 and was the topscorer on that tournament. In 2015 he won the award of African Youth Player of the Year. He already proved his killer instinct in the Belgian regular league with five goals.
Mr. Nicolas Laforge has been appointed Man in Black for the game at Mambourg. His assistants are Mr. Laurent Conotte and Mr. Patrick Plumes. Mr. Jan Botterberg is the fourth official. Mr. Erik Lambrechts is the VAR for the game.
Club are ranked second for the moment with 31 points and count three points less than KRC Genk which are top of the league for the moment. The reigning champion drew 1-1 in the Luminus Arena last week after Siebe Schrijvers neutralized the early opening goal of Ndongala. The Blues returned to Jan Breydel with a deserved point. The historic 0-4 victory against AS Monaco gave the Blues extra confidence for the game at Mambourg but a game at Charleroi is never easy.

Charleroi are ranked ninth in the Belgian First Division after losing 2-1 at Ostend. Zivkovic opened the score for the coast team but the Carolo’s came back. Both teams still created some chances at the end but the West-Flemish team kept the three points home thanks to the winning goal of Canesin. The team of Felice Mazzu has a strong home reputation and did not lose any of their three previous league duels at Mambourg. The Blues are warned!
