Gooch Scores as Standard Liege Wins

Oguchi Onyewu got on the scoresheet in Standard Liege's 2-0 victory against Club Brugge. Onyewu...get ready for it...scored with a header in the 72nd minute.



Now, Standard Liege is tied with Anderlecht on top of the table in Belgium. Tie-breakers around the world are different, but here's what we can find about the system in Belgium: "If teams have the same amount of points and wins, a test-match can be played in two legs to determine the final order in the standings." We're not sure if this is exactly the case or not (unrecognized academic source!) but we'll do a bit more research to figure it out. Or we'll ask you guys out there: do you know how they settle a tie in the Belgian league?
