Zulte Waregem

Such a zondagavondmatch has to his advantage: both teams knew exactly what they were. STVV jump in profit over Standard back in the top 6, Zulte Waregem jump with three points more immediately about Mouscron and Waasland-Beveren. An impossible task it seemed that the last ten years, lost the West-Flemish but once on Truiense ground. Moreover, had the first win in 9 matches, on november 1, immense virtue done and, especially, coach Francky Dury had against Standard found The Solution, with Walsh and Tardieu central on the midfield. “Finally balance”, shouted he last Thursday. It is therefore logical that he, for the first time this season has not changed – even Sylla, one of the superstars Thursday should start, Essevee accept the proposed three days suspension for his ‘karatetrap’ at Fai.

And it has to be said: Essevee showed on Stayen immediately decisive. The visitors were kept on the midfield everything close and made the most of threat: a headbutt of Harbaoui, Bongonda, who after a collision with The Norre a penalty claimed, a goal Harbaoui who because of offside was rejected…. of those things. While the home team no time for potential hazards and hardly any pace could create.

VAR intervenes

The goal is still for the half hour of Essevee was best earned. It was an enlightened moment of The Peacock with a delicious crossing between two defenders Bongonda for Steppe, and the number 10 of Essevee shot cleverly from an acute angle. A deserved lead for the peace and quiet was doubled when Harbaoui a breakthrough of Sylla graduated. Ref Boterberg saw no hesitation in the videoref is: who had a prior error seen Harbaoui at The Norre. Could about gediscuteerd words, but that party was for Essevee already not by. With a yellow card for Harbaoui in addition, it would be the Tunesiër heavy breaking up.

The home team drew there is courage, because drew in the second half with The Sart (on the bank run due to a vormdipje said coach Marc Brys) in place of Endo now more towards Bossut. With soon a dot of a chance for Boli that only for Bossut in addition to decided. Essevee had, especially problems with the ever-emerging high flanks and was by the suddenly much sharper footballing Canaries all the way backward squat.

The Truiense still in strong position came there, even fast: The Sart piloted Kamada by the offside trap, and the Japanese made cool (1-1). A opdoffer for the visitors who forced the balance to try to recover. But STVV insisted, Essevee had with man and power to defend. Even did also Harbaoui, but all the driest, his intervention on Ceballos took him a second yellow card. Essevee stood with ten man for a very tough slotkwartier. Too heavy, as it turned out, five minutes before time, made the sunken Acolatse for the visitors with a shot in the corner cold. STVV in the top six, Essevee back out. Next week will receive the Lokeren for a new degradatietopper. Without Harbaoui and Sylla, however.
