Standard Liege face their first real test of the Jupiler League when they welcome Club Brugge to Schlessin Stadium for a Sunday evening encounter along the Meuse River.

Oguchi Onyewu will be taking his usual place alongside Mohammed Sarr in the center of the defense after resting for half of the midweek game against UN Kaerjeng in UEFA Cup competition.

The Flemish club, who also qualified for the UEFA Cup as Belgian Cup winners, are only two points behind their league leader rivals who are on maximum points after four games.

Last week, Brugge gave up a second half strike to newly promoted KV Mechelen and lost their own perfect record, having to settle for a share of the points.

Recent arrival Wesley Sonck, who played with Kasey Keller at Monchelgladbach last season, will hope to make his debut for Club Brugge.

In a battle of the strikers, Milan Jovanovic will put his six strikes this season up against Ivan Leko's two, as both teams will surely go all out for the win as the victor will likely emerge from the weekend as Jupiler League leaders.
