No Win for Onyedika’s Club Brugge under new boss Scott Parker


Raphael Onyedika put in a good shift in Club Brugge’s Jupiler League encounter against Charleroi on Sunday.

It was a four-goal thriller at the Jan Breydel Stadion, and Onyedika’s performance was rated above average.

The midfielder had 65 touches and completed 51 passes, and played the entire duration of the game.

He also completed 1 dribble, 2 Tackles, 1 interception, 3 blocks and 1 aerial duel.

But the game started off poorly for the hosts as they fell behind by two goals inside three minutes.

Youssouph Badji (13′) and an own goal by CB Brandon Mechele (16′) meant Club had an uphill task to overcome. And before the break, they responded converting from the penalty spot.

Noa Long halved the deficit in the first minute of stoppage time to see the sides close the half with three goals.

Four minutes after the restart, Scott Parker’s side completed the comeback with Andreas Olsen’s goal.

However, there was more drama as Charleroi were reduced to 10 men, Mehdi Boukamir was given his marching orders in the 74th minute.

Regardless, neither side managed to increase their goal tally and eventually settled for a share of the spoils.

A third consecutive draw – and debut game defeat to KRC Genk – means Parker continues his search for a first win since taking the reins at Club Brugge.

Club Brugge thus drop to 5th on the league standings, to the Conference League spot, after 22 round of matches.
