Beveren - Lokeren 1-3
Aristide Bance was the man of the day, scoring a hat-trick, including the match opener in the 21st minute.

Things then settled down a bit and Bance completed his treble in the 55th minute to secure victory for Lokeren.
Germinal - Cercle Brugge 0-0
A sagging encounter between two mid-table sides produced no action and no goals on Saturday.
The point leaves both teams next to each other in the table with Germinal 12th and Cercle 13th.
Club Brugge - Standard Liège 1-1
Ivan Leko put Brugge in front in the 31st minute, much to the delight of the home supporters, but USA international defender Oguchi Onyewu struck back two minutes before the interval for Standard.
