Warleson heroics not enough for Cercle Brugge in city derby



Cercle Brugge goalkeeper Warleson put in another inspired display as he denied Club Brugge for the majority of the Brugge derby on Sunday afternoon. The Brazilian goalkeeper made five crucial saves as he kept the away side out until Andreas Skov Olsen equalised in the 83rd minute.

Cercle had taken the lead in the 32nd minute thanks to Kevin Denkey’s 24th league goal of the season.
