Mat Ryan is of the belief that Club Brugge are capable of winning the Belgian Pro League title this season.

The Blauw-Zwart currently sit third on the table, just four points off league leaders Standard Liege, and their Australian goalkeeper is confident they have the squad to win their first premiership since 2004/05.

"Anything but being champions here is sort of considered a failure," he said. "I understand it's been six or seven years since they've been champions.

"Every year's the same; they're really pushing for it again. In the beginning we had a few injuries and a few new faces in the team and we weren't playing our best football but we were picking up results.

"That's the most important thing. I think we're in a good position at the moment.

"I don't see with the squad we have at the moment any reason why, and from the opposition I've seen, why we can't go all the way this season."
