UEFA Europa League - Club Brugge KV
FCB have a glorious history of goal nets and, like NK Maribor, went to extreme lengths to keep their stanchions when box nets were deemed a necessary requirement.
In the mid-60's Brugge sported stanchions of a curve that suggested the Latin influence of Madrid and Santiago and would lead to similar at Feyenoord.
By the late 70's FCB were a force in European football and played between skinny A-frames that were classically Low Country.
The A-frames were still there in the mid-90's and the era of box net homogeneity. Exactly like those at NK Maribor, Brugge maintained their identity by draping the box nets over the stanchions.
