Genk and Club Bruges share the spoils in a pleasant topper

The People dominated in the first half and were deserved lead through Ndongala. With peace in sight names of the visitors to the command about that, but in the end had to wait until after the peace. Calculated Siebe Writers redeemed the preponderance of Club Brugge with the deserved equalizer. After the hours burst the contest is completely open, with great opportunities on both sides.

Racing Genk had during the titelcampagne 2010-2011 about eighteen thousand subscribers, and played regularly to sold-out house. After that successeizoen attacked the results back and decreased the customer base. Despite the attractive football of the past few months came the wegblijvers just some time back, but at the Club was the Luminus Arena is almost filled to the brim.

The full stands resulted from the first minute for an atmosphere that did look back to may 17, 2011, the day on which the Figures against Standard for the fourth time in their existence champion.

Club Brugge started with the same eleven as last Tuesday against KV Oostende, so with Shaper on the bank. Philippe Clement changed his team in two places: Zhegrova and Paintsil were replaced by Berge and Ndongala, who surprisingly as a second striker next to Samatta played.


As a bit expected, took the home team from the first whistle to the initiative. Club remained for the centerline and hang out, but by the continual overtaking, got blue-black in the start-up phase little barrel on his fast running opponent.

Had for result that the opening goal not long tarried. Samatta reached smart the being infiltrated by Pozuelo, who hit the ball over the hatched Horvath hitchhiked. The well-followed Ndongala was pushing it. The visitors tried to immediately respond, but Genk continued on his momentum to continue: Maehle and Uronen high on the flanks, the duo Berge-Heynen as a double lock on the door, Pozuelo and Malinovskyi in a free role and the front two movable strikers. Especially Ndongala has played strong.

Little ideas

Club Brugge was not so much objected. Vanaken was not in the match and also of Writers and Zipper were little ideas, so Wesley and Diatta hardly a useful ball got. The response of the West-Flemish was too predictable to the Genk defense to surprise. At the end of the first half was the champion longer to set up. Vukovic had, however, no dramatic rescues to perform in order to keep the zero.

During the break were holding Ivan Leko apparently a convincing speech, because Club Bruges came with a different attitude to the kick-off. Genk had to give, and gave his lead already after eight minutes of price. The really Wesley rebounded the ball back to Writers, who with a dry scrubber scored against his previous club: 1-1.

Good luck

The guests were better in the match and climbed up a few minutes later egg so after 1-2. Aidoo had very much luck when he has a ball Pocket against the cover strip devieerde. Suddenly broke the match is completely open, because on the other side had Horvath a great reflex in the house an attempt by Heynen.

The game was not a college-level, but spread pleasantly over and over again. There must be added that the Genk flamboyance of the past few weeks due to the strength of the counterparty is still not accepted. Anyway, the rash remained until the end in the dark. Tension was there enough, but the scored was no longer there.
