Club Brugge has not succeeded in the 4-1 loss from the heenwedstrijd right to convert into the semi-finals of the Croky Cup against Standard. Bruges won with 3-2, but saw new goalkeeper Vermeer after only 3 minutes in the go wrong.
No Horvath, Hubert or Gabulov in goal at Club Brugge. No, coach Ivan Leko preferred to the Dutchman Kenneth Vermeer in goal. Vermeer became the fifth goalkeeper this season between the posts stood in blue-black. In addition, it was also Nakamba between the lines, he was the preferred choice on van la parra. At Standard took Duje Cop in the place of the sick Edmilson, man in form Emond was on the right.
After the match with a quarter of an hour it was delayed by the traffic around the Jan breydel stadium, could Club Brugge start of operation-Remontada. Club knew that it was at least three times would have to score in order to obtain an advance, already in the first minute did blue-black and nearly to the nets vibrate. Nakamba was his shot, however, after a whirlwind attack, and saw the ball next to jolt.
Vermeer in the error
On the other side showed Kenneth Vermeer is meanwhile not the reliable cornerstone on which all of the Club-fans, meanwhile, are hoping for. First he went in the wrong at a free kick, but he was saved by defender Mitrovic. A minute later, a second blunder. This time after a high corner kick: Vermeer went into the error and went under the ball, Orlando Sa thanked him, and headed to the second pole of the 0-1 in.
A damper on the revelry at Club Brugge, also Golden Shoe Ruud Molder could turn the tide does not turn in the first half. Yet, Club still 1-1 in peace, Hans Vanaken kicked a free kick from a distance neatly against the ropes. Blue-black and went with a glimmer of hope in the changing rooms, but had to in the second half, however, still three times scoring at least renewals from the fire to drag.
Spoiler alert: it didn’t work. Al was particularly exciting when Abdoulay Diaby after playing for an hour handsome, was unlocked and the 2-1 against the ropes poked. Yet two goals and the Remontada was a fact… but then if the Club have no goal more within get. And that happened: the inevitable Renaud Emond was the street sent in and kicked the 2-2 past Vermeer in goal.
End of the bekerhoop, already got the substitute Rajiv van la parra would still be grams with a nice shot distance by the small-small – Standard-goalkeeper Gillet was incorrectly estimated. When van la parra for five minutes before it was inserted for Nakamba, left the Club-audience of his displeasure know to the Club-coach Leko. The 3-2, however, was too little, too late. Standard, and so not Club Brugge qualified for the cup final against Racing Genk. That means that for the first time in six years, not West-Flemish club in the cup final will take office.
