Club Brugge wins back-to-back Belgian titles

<p>BRUSSELS &mdash; Club Brugge won the Belgian league title for the 17th time and qualified for next season’s Champions League following a 3-3 draw with Anderlecht.</p>
<p>After dominating the regular season, the “Blauw en Zwart" have amassed enough points and can’t be overtaken by their closest rival Genk during the season-ending playoffs.</p>
<p>Brugge players were also crowned champions last season after the country’s professional soccer league cut the competition short because of the coronavirus pandemic. </p>
<p>It’s the first time the club has secured back-to-back titles since 1978 when it claimed three championships in a row under manager Ernst Happel.</p>
