Belgian First Division wrap: Vazquez powers Brugge to win

26 August 2012 23:00

Spanish midfielder Victor Vazquez has starred as Club Brugge defeated Mons 3-1 to move back to the top of the Belgian First Division.

Brugge had dropped to third on the table thanks to results from earlier in the week but a brilliant second-half performance from Vazquez ensured they took the points away to Mons.

The visitors from Brugge took the lead in the 60th minute when Vazquez set up Mohamed Tchite to score.

Mons hit back five minutes later with a penalty from Mustapha Jarju and the home side looked like they might hold on for a draw until the final 12 minutes.

In the 78th minute, Vazquez grabbed a goal and seven minutes later the 25-year-old Spaniard created another for Carlos Bacca to ensure Brugge's victory.

The win puts Brugge to the top of the Belgian First Division table with 13 points, ahead of Anderlecht (11) and a trio of clubs on 10.

One of those clubs, Standard Liege, also won on Sunday, knocking off visiting Mechelen 3-2.

In an action-packed second half, Liege scored three goals in nine minutes to go 3-0 ahead before Mechelen hit the back of the net twice to ensure a nervous finish for the home side.

Yoni Buyens scored Liege's first in the 56th minute followed by a goal from Imoh Ezekiel and a penalty from Ignacio Gonzalez.

But Mechelen made it interesting with a 67th-minute strike from Mads Junker before Thomas Enevoldsen scored in the third minute of injury time to draw within one goal of Liege, who held on for their third-straight victory.

In other Belgian First Division results, Gent defeated Lokeren 2-1 and Genk won 2-0 over Zulte-Waregem.
