STVV peg-back Brugge, Standard win
Club Brugge regained top spot in the fledgling Jupiler League standings this evening despite relinquishing a three-goal lead to draw 3-3 at STVV.
Two first-half goals from Lior Rafaelov - one either side of Maxime Lestienne's strike - looked to have put the visitors on course for their second win in two games.
The hosts got back into the game, however, with goals from Reza Ghoochannejhad and Nils Schouterden and then, despite the 68th-minute dismissal of Dimitri Daeseleire, nicked a dramatic point thanks to Gregory Dufer's injury-time equaliser.
Brugge were joined on four points by Standard Liege, who beat Lokeren 3-1. Reginal Goreux put the hosts ahead midway through the first half and a penalty by M'Baye Leye six minutes before the break doubled their advantage.
Leye was on target again just after the hour and, although Mijat Maric pulled a goal back from the spot, but Liege had already done more than enough.
Westerlo remained bottom despite picking up their first point of the campaign with a goalless home draw against nine-man KV Kortrijk.
The visitors had Ervin Zukanovic sent off after 16 minutes and Mustapha Oussalah red-carded 19 minutes from time, but Westerlo were unable to take advantage.
