Cup, thus of Belgium

Frank Buyse

MechelenZeker one resembled plays on 1 may, the cup final but it promises next week in a sold-out Joseph Mariënstadion a particularly violent duel.

KV Mechelen was nevertheless ready for it. A sold out stadium, 14,000 spectators, and an amazing tifo that was referring to 1987, the year of the last bekerwinst of KVM. All the atmosphere of the old days, in a new stadium by then. And totally ready for the twentieth victory in a row under coach Wouter Vrancken. Then Saturday on Beerschot Wilrijk the 21st address and that cup final and promotion were very close: Mechelen on its head.

And as an extra: Luka Elsner, the Slovenian coach of Union, had his team – that a week and a half with 1-2, having lost the KVM – on no less than eight places are exchanged. The injured goalkeeper Saussez and the suspended captain Perdichizzi necessity, but also no Ferber in the front. The villain of Anderlecht Niakaté and Tau were back. An experimental team actually, but that last duel, in which Union itself, however, had shown, had Elsner learned a lot, had the Slovenian pre-recorded.

Two goals disallowed

On all faces showed the inhabitants of Brussels are better than the leader in 1B: in duelkracht, combination
power, speed

Mechelen started at the top Jules Van Cleemput (only) after, with his typeploeg, Van Damme took his place, central, back again, Bagayoko was, as expected, the replacement of Van Cleemput. But to everyone’s surprise showed Union of the first minute, the better team. Vrancken feared especially the conversion of Union, but the Inhabitants, took bold immediately the match in the hands with violently threatening and a lot of people in the front.

The nervous home team had to constantly reverse, that had the AFAS stadium is not expected. Fifteen minutes would it take before the balance somewhat could be restored, forty minutes for Mechelen for the first time, could threaten. But beyond that dictated Royal Union Saint Gillis with the law. On all faces showed the inhabitants of Brussels are better than the leader in 1B: in duelkracht, combinatievermogen, speed.

KVM came a few times in a good way: two goals of the able-bodied Tau were disallowed for offside. Especially the first goal, after a clever deep ball Teuma, was very doubtful, but eventually understand. KVM, gedoodverfd favorite, and touched but not in the game and piled the inaccuracies. It lost too many duels. The stadium shivered, and that was not immediately of the cold.

Not until just before half-burned it a few times for Kristiansen, with a header from De Camargo and a vrijschop of Kaya. But if the home team are satisfied that no damage had accrued, it must be just about the worst what KVM this season had already shown.

Schoofs fog

After the peace returned, however, all. Greatly helped by the rapid exclusion of captain Tau – second yellow and took the home team is now decisively the match in hands. Union was backward, a shot of Storm was a first notice, a cross-shot from Schoofs – better in the match now – sat next to. KVM understood that it had to be pushing yourself, but a moment later, miss Storm, after a smart hakbal of The Camargo only for Kristiansen, the opportunity, on the openingsgoal.

The home side had now completely recovered, Union marched with his tens backwards. But the much needed goal came, but not a lot of open opportunities, there are also not. This defended the visitors are all too bright and played soccer KVM too rough. The sunken Tainmont decided still to weak in addition to, just as one in favour of the already sunken Togui, but much more danger there was in spite of a frantic rush.

On the basis of the first half was the scoreloos tie for Union more than earned. There is Mechelen with the enthusiastic Inhabitants a very heavy task. Tau, Selemani, Niakaté, Teuma: goéie football players, though. That team has not just Anderlecht and Genk turned off.

Saturday KVM at Beerschot Wilrijk the door to first class again opened. But the 1987 match, that is not simple.
