Winner of the Cercle de Bruges home (4: 0) on Friday on the final day of playoff II in the Jupiler Pro Football League, KV Kortrijk confirmed his adherence to Group B as the first to finish.
Only Union Saint-Gilloise can still take the lead from Kortrijk if Yves Vanderhaeghe's men fail, but Unionists are still on the pitch in Zulte-Waregem (2-1).
As Union Saint-Gilloise did not apply for a European license, KV Kortrijk was already confident he would play in the Playoffs II final. The Cortez, however, tended to finish first in Group B. Eve Vanderhage did not deal in detail with the Serqu de Brugge, deflating the mark four times through Ezekiel (18), Leupin (71). Knight (77) and Dai Haene (88).
Meanwhile, the Union suffered its second defeat in this group in ten Zulte-Waregem matches. Sylla (31) and Faik (33) gave the hosts a two-goal lead before Selemanie reduced the penalty score (37).
Finally, Mouscron lost to Waasland-Beveren (2-4) for Mbaye Leye's last professional match. The two Awoniyi goals (34.72) will not be enough against the achievements of Badibanga (38), Jubitana (66), Forte (77) and Ampomah (90 + 3).
KV Kortrijk (24 points) finishes first in group B. Union (20), Zulte Waregem (13), Waasland-Beveren (13), Mouscron (8) and Circle (7).
KV Kortrijk will face Sporting de Charleroi, Group A winner at the end of the match, in the Playoffs II final on Wednesday, May 22 (20.30).
