Wednesday proved to be a rough old night for the Belgian top tier as two of the Jupiler League’s most venerable clubs were sent packing from the domestic cup by amateur opposition.

Both Club Brugge and Standard Liege came in at the sixth-round stage of the Croky Cup and were promptly knocked back out again in their maiden fixtures after suffering shock losses against KMSK Deinze and Royal Knokke respectively.

Brugge lost 2-0 to Deinze…

While Standard ended up on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline against Knokke…

Just to make matters worse, Standard were the defending champions having won the Croky Cup in 2017/18 (having seen of Club Brugge in the semis).

Yeesh. Seems like whatever Manchester United had against Derby was contagious.
