The Belgian First Division in 2020-2021

The 2019-2020 Jupiler Pro league was stopped in May and the standings were definitive. The only match that was played was the Cup Finale that was played on the first of August. The underdog Antwerp won this finale against the reigning champions Club Brugge who missed out on the double.

Club Brugge is once again the favorite for the 2020-2021 season after winning the 2019-2020 season. They are in the best financial position and they are no rumors about key pieces leaving. They can probably improve their below average striker via a transfer.

Their main competitors are AA Gent, Antwerp and Standard.

AA Gent came second last season but they will probably lose Jonathan David who wants to be transferred to a bigger team and/or league, this will probably happen as there have been recent reports of bids up to 30 million. If David leaves they will have to search someone who can replace his production as he carried the team last year by 18 goals and 7 assists in 27 games.

Another challenger is Standard who only came fifth last year but they were only 6 points behind second place AA Gent. Standard's main loss this off-season was their trainer Michel Preud'homme who is both a Standard legend as a player and as a coach. Preud'homme won two championships and two Belgian cups in his coaching career but he decided to retire because of personal reasons. They maybe need to acquire some players to compete for the championship and Phillipe Montanier will have to step up as the new head coach.

The third challenger is Antwerp. This team recently beat Club Brugge 0-1 in the Cup final. They have had a pretty rough offseason, their keeper Sinan Bolat, their head coach Laszlo Bölöni, defender Wesley Hoedt and attackers Kevin Mirallas and Dieumerci Mbokani, who was JPL topscorer in 2019-2020, all left. They already found their new head coach Ivan Leko, who coached Club Brugge a few years ago, and they will probably acquire some players in the next few months. If they can build on their Cup win they could become Club Brugge's biggest championship threat in the 2020-2021 season.

There are some other teams that could bounce back after a disappointing 2019-2020 season.

The first one is RSC Anderlecht led by Vincent Kompany. When Kompany returned every Anderlecht fan thought he could lead this team back to the promised land after an already disappointing 2018-2019 season. It became clear throughout the season the system didn't work and the players weren't talented enough to compete for the top spot.  Last season was also a disappointment for Kompany as he had some injury trouble throughout the year. They made some management changes and are ready with a fresh start.

KRC Genk were the 2018-2019 champions but after losing their coach Phillipe Clement to Club Brugge and losing some of their best players in the 2019 offseason the 2020 season was disappointing with a seventh place finish. They will look to rebound with their young talent in the 2020-2021 season.

The last dark horse championship candidate is Sporting Charleroi who finished third in the 2019-2020 season. This team has been one of the most consistent over the last few years but still isn't considered one of the big clubs in Belgium. They maybe don't have the same financial resources as the other clubs we have mentioned but they are one of the most stable teams in the Belgian football league.
