The European adventure of Standard is not finished yet. Thanks to a victory against the Spanish match organiser Sevilla (1-0) are the Luikenaren at the same height of the Spanish in the mutual duels have an edge. The slotspeeldag must bring the decision.
A waterkansje made the Luikenaren even before the start of the match. But before that they had Sevilla beat to be at the same height with nine points. And even then, preferably with a 4-0 lead because only so could Preudhomme and co Sevilla in the standings, also is effective over stitches.
Anyway, a difficult task but one that is Standard in good spirits, inhabiting. The match was not even a quarter of an hour far, or the team of Michel Preudhomme already had two good chances created. Emond nodded, however, in addition to and Carcela could be shot after a superb dribble is not framing.
Sevilla restored the balance, the least you should expect from the leader in the Primera Division. Who, after thirteen days of teams like Barcelona and Real Madrid being able to keep, must have a lot of qualities. And that work they also. Franco Vazquez in the event that Ochoa sound but saw its water level against the crossbar beaches.
But that was also the only achievement because of the break for the visitors, Standard saw Mpoku still out with a ribblessure.
The Rouches were also after the break in their momentum. Emond if already on goalkeeper Vaclik him but the striker pushed the doctrine too far off. Way chance, so you’ll get them not often at this level. Nevertheless, the Luikenaren finally rewarded for their attacking intentions. Djenepo picked up the leather, put a one-two with Carcela, verge offside, and himself was borderline offside on Vaclik off. Where Emond failed, kept the young Malian to be the cool head: 1-0 for Standard.
The Spaniards were suddenly on their hips and that would give them acid to break up: Sarabia took two yellow cards in a short time, making them suddenly with ten. In addition, a goal of the visitors – and rightly disallowed for offside. Sevilla kept pressing, Standard continued to search for a second goal but Laifis headed home from close alongside and Djenepo forgot to the second pole. And in injury time missed Djenepo still the possibility of the redeeming hit after an unlikely stage for the purpose.
It was a miracle 1-0 which Rouches mathematically have not been eliminated. On the slotspeeldag receives Sevilla and already placed Krasnodar, Standard to the Turks of Akhisarspor. The chance is real that Standard with a win in Turkey with twelve points from six matches yet no European is allowed to overwinter.
