Racing Genk have an eventful evening for her. During the match against Zulte Waregem became known that the club’s general director Patrick Janssens on the side. He is followed by Kris Gerits. On the field, won the Limburgers, the first thuiszege since 25 October.
Let the sporting begin. There were the Genkenaren an excellent case for a place in play-off I. The People started the day at the coveted sixth place, but with four teams at one point could Philippe Clement and co is no point loss afford.
For Zulte Waregem this season is not much more to win and could without too much pressure on the party to start. And that there was to see. A forced Genk had the initiative to the visitors who with Bongonda and Bjordal two newcomers between the lines brought. Yet, it was the home team that the lead came after a monumental blunder of Marcq. The ex-Buffalo played the wrong way and put so Karelis only for the purpose. The first attempt of the Greeks was interrupted by goalkeeper Bossut, the rebound flew within (1-0).
Genk went better football and almost doubled the lead via a header from Karelis but Bossut saved quite handsome. The match was good up and down. Bongonda was once suspected of the ball held, and when goalkeeper Vukovic the newcomer just past the half hour aantikte, the ball is still on the dot. Harbaoui knew no mercy.
Equal stand with the rest and shot nobody. The visitors shot the best out of the starting blocks but Harbaoui and Walsh were interrupted by goalkeeper Vukovic. And again attacked the goal on the other side. An attack initiated by the excellent sunken Ndongola ended up with Thomas Buffel who Bossut with a powerful volley no chance left. The same Buffalo had a moment later, the match final on the slot should do. He had sculpted himself a nice free, passed Bossut but shot over from close on the visiting goal. Zulte Waregem wanted no districts know and went in search of the equalizer. Once or twice had the home team’s rescue on the goal line: first with a shot from Harbaoui, a moment later when a powerful header from Derijck. Genk creaked but didn’t want to go. On the contrary, it was Pozuelo who in the slotminuut with a distant bang, the victory safely suggested. Genk kept the points at home after a rather exciting soccer match.
From the tribune looked to the new managing director Kris Gerits amused. His team continues to advance on the sixth place and qualified earlier this week for the cup final.
