This gives Club NXT an average of 3.33 goals per game on displacement. A working point for Rik de Mil and his trainer staff. Together with Maarten Martens and Carl Hoefkens that staff includes two ex-Red Devils. T2 Tim Smolders also has a whole professional career behind him. He took his first steps in soccer at Netenzonen Eindhout (only 7km away from the Westelse stadium).

Some youngsters of Club NXT Champions league were allowed to gain experience at big brother Club Brugge? Central midfielder Thomas Van den Keybus made his debut in the 3-0 victory at home against Zenit last week. Van den Keybus was given a few minutes to show off in the added time. Another youngster, Ignace Van Der Brempt, who was also included in the core for the match against Zenit, was allowed to give the best of himself in minute 85 yesterday in the extremely exciting finale against Lazio. He saw the bang of Charles De Ketelaere burst on the bar, which meant that Club Brugge was just unable to qualify for the Champions League.
