Well…not quite just…anyway, to the blog post at hand. Belgium has a mix of quality strikers for the league and across Europe. There is a trifecta of strikers at the top clubs and with a full season for some of them, if they remain injury free, this could be a close one!
However, Anderlecht hold the upper hand when it comes to goalscorers currently in the Pro League. The pairing of Henry Onyekuru and Lukasz Teodorczyk up front could be deadly. Forty four goals in the league between them last season is nerve wracking for any defence this coming season.
Then you have Jelle Vossen, Jeremy Perbet and Wesley at Club Brugge who’ll be looking to get amongst the goals. The signing of Perbet could be the difference between top and second this season for Blauw–Zwart. The problem for the chasing pack is that Gent, Charleroi, Oostende and Zulte Waregem have lost attackers, or in the case of ESSEVEE, haven’t exactly strengthened in that department in comparison to the others.
Standard Liege have managed to keep hold of Orlando Sa and Ishak Belfodil so far which is fantastic for Les Rouches in their own bid for the title, or at least European football. And along with holding onto players, Mbwana Samatta has stayed at Genk which is a big boost too.
Other contenders include Teddy Chevalier, which looks unlikely, and Eric Ocansey will have to step up to the plate for Eupen. You also have Igor Vetokele at STVV! The only other possibility right now could be Zinho Gano at Beveren, but his inconsistency could go against him. There’s a clutch of top strikers at each club so goals could be on the agenda this season, but one club in particular is hoarding them.
To sign off, let’s not forget Lokeren as a club who have an insurmountable amount of strikers. I’ve counted 11 strikers at the club. I may be wrong but they have the chance to field a starting line up of strikers.
