The Ghent patient is not ill but sick to death. Racing Genk knew Sunday night no mercy with the hard to ignore Buffalo’s and klaarden all for the rest of the job. Eventually it became 1-5. For Yves Vanderhaeghe seems to be his last hour has struck in the Ghelamco Arena. This was the humiliation too much, right?
The openingskwartier set the tone immediately and was an easy prey for Genk, Malinovskyi and Pozuelo directed, as of old, and immediately resulted in panic in the Ghent defense, which no grip was on the aalvlugge flankspelers of the visitors. The team of Yves Vanderhaeghe did not know of what wood the arrows and ran from the outset behind an elusive ball. Philippe Clement had his players clearly sharpened after the unexpected European uitschuiver and in a corner of Malinovskyi was the right touch: Samatta responded caught when the ball stuck in the Ghent sixteen and left Kalinic no chance (0-1).
Ghent was very confused and when Ndongala yet again to get himself in the right wing, he served excellent Paintsil heart completely were: the Ghanaian thanked his guards for so much freedom of movement and doubling immediately the Genk ahead. Genk took gas back and Bronn ventured once his chance with a low slider, but then, when Uronen adventure went on its left was the thuisdefensie re-finance gasping its last, and could Ndongala was still for the half hour is the knife for the third time in the Ghent voetbalhart stitches (0-3).
Moment it seemed that Gent a fist, Limbombe took a great free kick and Bronn pushed the ball against the nets. It was flagged for offside but the VAR, the goal well and made for a moment of hope in the fearful Ghent hearts. But then it went again error: Dejaegere – that actually the preference had been given to the failing Yaremchuk – was all too bright by on Malinovskyi and swallowed another for the rest of his second yellow card of the evening. Gent back out.
What AA Gent in that first half happened, called memories with the passage of Sjachtar Donetsk. On that memorable evening in november 2016, were given the Buffalo’s voetballes of an authoritarian Ukrainian voetbalmachine but in Genk there was only one Oekraïner between the lines: Ruslan Malinoviskyi took, however, with verve, the honours which his countrymen, and played side by side with Pozuelo and Berge, the local central axis to pieces.
Vanderhaeghe handle in the at rest and brought Esiti for Limbombe, Thoelen solved then Kalinic that earlier this week all suffered suffered a slight injury. That personnel substitutions yielded little to no effect. Genk continued effortlessly to dominate and piled the doelrijpe opportunities such as the Ghent directors these days, the application letters. And the Gent audience? That looked with growing amazement at the spectacle but seemed above all to be left to be really furious to respond. Resignation reigns in Buffalo circles, you know.
For Genk was after peace, of course, also not more really. The European trip to Sarpsborg had energy cost. When the home team was there then, there is an admirable commitment, but Vukovic remained almost continuously unemployed and watch.
The urge to act is not sufficient to be a well-oiled machine such as Genk in embarrassment. Pozuelo tapped neatly to Pozuelo and Malinovskyi took the tractor over to 1-4 and then also Paintsil again, his second of the night scored on indicate of Pozuelo was the fence of the dam and turned the Ghent public painfully obvious by the own staff and board.
Only Vadis Odjidja, who has some creditable attempts made, could have on their vocal support. So it was a dramatic evening for the Ghent voetbalfamilie and thorough examination of conscience is urgently needed. The mailbox of the Ghent directors genuinely after tonight, perhaps a bit more with applications. Al is the head coach, in no case, the only person responsible for this debacle. This AA Gent has a shock therapy is needed, one that the current head coach may not survive.
