Too many Anastasiou-time
Kortrijk, since the advent of The Boeck home sense of integrity, took the match in hands. But that happened without a lot of depth and sharpness. The ball was nice and round, but Eupen got every time the time of its organization. Shots from the second line but Chevalier and Rougeaux shots. In between, they had also Eupen bit threatened but Kaminski showed himself alert to the shot of Schouterden.
The last quarter brought the team to the press: the header of Makarenko in a corner, was a first real chance and a little later, Lepoint a schoentip too short. But it was too little, too much Anastasiou-time: calm and cared for football, but without the efficiency and firepower. Kortrijk could be better and that they would, after the peace, in the direction of its own heading to show.
So soon appeared, when Schouterden a doorgekopte ball of Perbet on the cross of Chevalier of the line had to be removed. And when Van Crombrugge a blast of Kumordzi almost not under control. But then fell the attack of the home team yet again silent. Kortrijk was even two times good way, when Garcia after a sloppy uitverdedigen of Kaminski overlobde and a header from Schouterden but little in addition to went.

The first loss of points from the CHAMBER of commerce under The Boeck home and it was, given that luck on PO1, acid. For Eupen it was a precious point, Mechelen, Sunday to Anderlecht, now need two points to make.
