It’s the time for Club Brugge. At Leverkusen – Wednesday’s opponent in the Champions League – it is currently running square.

On Saturday, it recorded its fourth loss in five Bundesliga games at home against Freiburg. Leverkusen had taken the lead via Demirbay. Only immediately after the break they conceded two goals.

Bright spot: newcomer Callum Hudson-Odoi was immediately good for an assist with Patrik Schick’s 2-2. Ritsu Doan’s winning goal, however, dampened that celebration immediately.

Molde, leader in the Norwegian Eliteserien, has gained confidence on Saturday evening for the upcoming confrontation with AA Gent on the first day of the Conference League. Visiting number two Bodo/Glimt won 1-4.

The devil was in the start in the first half. Markus Andre Kaasa paved the way, Isak Helstad Amundsen hit back for the host. Still, thanks to Emil Breivik, Molde dived into the dressing rooms with a lead. In the second half, Kaasa and Ola Brynhildsen deepened into an unbridgeable chasm.

Anderlecht are better off not looking at Silkeborg’s latest result. The Danish club, which will visit Brussels on Thursday, narrowly lost against the strong FC Copenhagen.

However, Silkeborg was often the better team. It shot to target a total of 21 times, but collided with a very strong Mathew Ryan (ex-Club and ex-Genk). Viktor Claesson shot sharp for the home team.

Union knows what to expect against namesake Union Berlin. The cult club achieved another excellent result in the Bundesliga on Saturday by keeping record champions Bayern Munich in a draw.

Berlin even took the lead after 12 minutes via Sheraldo Becker. About 100 seconds later it was already 1-1 thanks to Joshua Kimmich.

But then Union Berlin bravely held out against the Munich machine. With goalkeeper Frederik Ronnow – good for 5 saves – in an outstanding role.

With 11 out of 15, Union is in a tight joint third place.
