They have helped Club Brugge bounce back after starting their Belgian First Divison A title defence campaign on a losing against Sporting Charleroi on August 8.
Badji and Diatta are the joint top scorers in Philippe Clement’s team so far this season with two goals each while Dennis has only provided an assist as he awaits his maiden goal this term.
Diatta scored a brace in Club Brugge’s 4-0 demolition of AS Eupen on August 16 while Badji grabbed a goal in the fixture before scoring the match-winning goal against Genk last Sunday, after Dennis assisted Vanaken to open the scoring in the encounter.
18-year-old Badji who joined the Blue-Black this year, has started his European career on a promising note with the two goals scored in four Belgian top-flight matches.
Since the start of the 2020-21 campaign in August, Club Brugge have lost two games and won two. They are placed fifth in the First Belgian First Division A table with six points behind leaders Sporting Charleroi.
After the international break, they host Waasland-Beveren for their next league fixture on September 12.
