The recap of the first part of the Cercle season
Author of a successful first part of the season, Cercle Bruges does not intend to stop there. Before the return to competition scheduled for December 23 against Mechelen, here is the summary of the first part of the season for the club cousin of AS Monaco.
They have the wind in their sails! Whereas world Cup has just started in Qatar, the truce falls badly for Cercle Brugge. Ninth in the standings, tied on points with Standard de Liège, seventh (25 points) but above all one place in the qualifying zone for the Europa League Conference, all the lights are green for Miron Muslic’s men. Back on this beautiful first part of the season.
Six wins in last eight games
After a sluggish start to the season (one victory in nine games), Dominik Thalhammer was replaced by his assistant, the Austrian Miron Muslic. Metamorphosed, the club cousin of AS Monaco then increases in power, and the partners of Radeck Majecki -on loan from the club Rouge et Blanc- have even obtained 19 points out of a possible 24 in the last eight meetings with a magnificent record of six wins, a draw and only one defeat, against the Royal Union Saint-Gilloisefinalist of the last championship.

A fire attack, an iron defense
Even better, since the arrival of Miron Muslic, only two teams have taken more points than the Cercle: Genk, the big leader in the championship (24) and the Royale Union Saint-Gilloise (21). Over the same period, the people of Bruges, trained by their attacking duo composed of Ayase Ueda (9 goals) and Kevin Denkey (5 goals) are even the third attack in the championship in the last eight games with 19 goals scored (24 in total ). Boom!
Another proof of the Olympic form of our cousin club, over the last eight meetings, Radeck Majecki has only looked for the ball in the back of his net nine times, making the Polish goalkeeper and his rearguard the fourth defense of the championship. over the period.
Youngest team in the championship
Even more remarkable performances when you know that Cercle Brugge field the youngest team in the Pro League, with an average age of 22.8 at kick-off. Proof that talent has no age, Radeck Majecki (23) Boris Popovic (22 years old), Jesper Daland (22 years old), or even Kevin Denkey (21 years old) were all starters at the start of the last match before the truce during the victory on the lawn of Saint-Trond (0-1) , the oldest team in the championship. A characteristic similar to AS Monaco. Well done Circle!
