Anderlecht's title success

Anderlecht became champions on April 21, 2000, after the defeat of rival Club Brugge at Herman Vanderpoortenstadion to Lierse 1-0 as, prior to these results, they were 7 points ahead of Brugge with 3 matches to go. The next day Anderlecht beat Racing Genk 4-1 and then Standard Liège 2-0.

Battle for Europe

Club Brugge and Gent qualified for the UEFA Cup.

The relegation dog fight

Charleroi avoided relegation with a controversial draw against Anderlecht on the last day of the season. Anderlecht were already champions and played with Enzo Scifo who had previously signed a deal with Charleroi. However, the result was irrelevant as Geel lost their last match to Club Brugge and were thus relegated with Lommel.
