Player to watch: Igor Thiago

With 18 First Division A goals to his name, only one player has scored more goals than Igor Thiago in the Belgian top-flight this season.

The Brazilian player has enjoyed some fine form lately, scoring in his last three appearances for Club Brugge. He'll set his sights on extending that streak to four games.

Interestingly, Thiago was booked in his last two clashes with Royal Antwerp.
