In that case the period will be decided by:

 

1. Most wins

2. Goal difference

3. Most goals scored

4. Most goals scored in away games

5. Most wins in away games

 

If both teams are still level after all of these criteria, they will play 1 game (including extra-time and penalties if the score is tied after 90 minutes) to decide who wins the 1st period.

Why is the league split into two periods?

Apparently they think this makes the league "more attractive", which ofcourse is a load of BS.

Because Belgian pro football is bursting with incompetent fools, each with their own agenda (tied to club x or y). Two periods means two chances to compete for promotion. Even if overall your team was only 3rd or 4th.

When do Belgian kick off dates and times get confirmed? A group of us are thinking of trying to do the standard liege game on Feb 21 weekend, when will that be confirmed? Any help appreciated, thanks in advance

Are you taking about Leuven? Because Standard are in a different division

No, apologies, not leuven related, belgian football related. Can't find any info online, and this is the only place I know where people exist who are aware of belgian football!

Good day for Leicester and Leuven!

 

We won 2-1 at home against our closest rival. Very deserved victory, especially since Westerlo only scored from a 30yard missile that found our goalkeeper asleep, and didn't have any real chances other than that. While OHL had many chances for 3-1 but failed to convert a few sitters. To top it off, the referee thought it was a good idea to send off Keita for a fault that didn't deserve anything more than yellow.

 

To show you how cynical Belgian media are, concerning our second division: Tonight in the only tv-show about football, no word about OHL-Westerlo, a game that will have a huge impact on who will take the first period (and his place in the final for promotion) between the numbers one and two. Not. One. Word. However, featured in the same show: Leicester City wins in the EPL.

I understand your frustration, and it is similar here, but it was a Prem record win.

So if you win one of the next 2 games you should qualify to play whoever wins the 2nd half of the league Unless you win it again of course?

Only if we win next week against Union and Westerlo loses or draws and Virton loses, we win the 1st period and are qualified for the final.

 

If we would win both periods, we are the champions and would gain automatical promotion to the 1st division.

Oh, but that had nothing to do with it. They will (and no, this is not a joke) feature relegation games from the Bundesliga, as long as there is a Belgian involved (even if he's on the bench, or a spectator picking his nose on camera) and completely ignore the Belgian 2nd division at the same time.

Err...so Leuven were playing against St. Gilloise and the game was called off at 0-0 due to constant power cuts. The floodlights couldn't stay on so it was abandoned in the 52nd minute from what I've read. Very weird.

 

Not sure if the game will be rearranged or whether Leuven will forfeit the match? I've seen both options posted online.

If we can prove the floodlights didn't work due to technical difficulties outside our stadium, the game has to be replayed. Otherwise we lose this game by forfeit.

What a disaster, this could mean missing out on top spot due to the floodlights failing.

Have the owners spent any money on the ground and updating facilities?

The owners have indeed spend money updating the ground and facilities.

 

Apparently there have been several blackouts near our stadium today, so let's hope this was the reason why the floodlights kept failing.

ATM it looks like it wasn't the clubs fault. So this may have been a blessing in disguise, because though it was still 0-0, OHL was second best.
