Teddy Teuma scored one and set up two as Royal Union hit Genk for three in a crucial match in view of the Belgian top-flight title.
The Malta international, who captained the side from the start, assisted Christian Burgess twice from corner-kick situations in both first and second half.
In between, Teuma converted a penalty to net his 13th goal in 50 games, adding to 15 assists in all competitions.
Second-place Union trail Royal Antwerp by one point in the championship round, with two games left.
Teuma’s side will face Genk and the leaders in their upcoming couple of games.
Meanwhile, Zach Muscat’s SC Farense remain on course for an automatic promotion to Portugal’s top-flight after beating CD Nacional 1-0.
Muscat was deployed from the start and played a full 90 minutes as Farense maintained their second place.
With two games left, Farense are on 63 points while Estrela Amadora sit third – in the play off spot – on 60 points.
Benfica B and Tondela are Farense’s remaining two games in the Portuguese second-tier.
