BRUSSELS — Belgium was celebrating on Wednesday night after two of the nation's best clubs, Anderlecht and Club Brugge, qualified for the lucrative European Champions League.

Anderlecht defeated Slavia Praha 2-0 to reach the Champions League for the third time in a row, while Club Brugge got the better of Norwegian club Valerenga.

But as expected, Club Brugge had the most difficulty qualifying, eventually scoring in the 78th minute to send the match into penalties with a score of 1-1.

Brugge eventually emerged victorious from the penalties, clinching the thrilling match 4-3.

The draw for the Champions League matches will be known on Thursday, but doubt remains whether both Belgian clubs will progress much further.
