RC Genk after the victory against Standard, more than ever, titelkandidaat number one. The Task proved against the attacking young Rouches that they are completely ready for Play-off 1.
Nine points ahead of Genk in advance on the first pursuer Club Brugge. A solid bonus, which, however, mainly harvested was against the little ones. Play-off 1 in mind, consideration was given to the leader Friday night, perfect opportunity for a great performance to deliver against a co-titelkandidaat. Already in the last few weeks rather Standard that are the trademark of: the Rouches went with a handsome 16 to 18 to the Luminus Arena .
Genk took the opportunity with pleasure and started to full of fire to the party: Maehle reached after three minutes Paintsil, but the Ghanaian could not decide because of offside. The Limburg vanguard seemed to make sense to have: Pozuelo gave some great doorsteekballen to Trossard, that each time but a toe is too short for the 1-0 on the scoreboard. Standard occasionally got up, but was not imminent enough to yourself to claim the 0-1. That Genk at the rustsignal goalless the dressing room, causing lag, not the lack of verve – everyone had a clear meaning, but because the visor is not as sharp.
Liberating first goal
Genk loose after the tea, but the faster the clock ticked, the more difficult it seemed to be to that liberating first goal. The departure of Christian Luyindama could not be exploited: the Congolese was easily replaced by his compatriot Merveille Bokadi. The former midfielder is physical, although more strongly built than Luyindama, but that he makes good by his uitvoetballen better.
The good constructive impulses at regret, let the Liège forefront – where Renaud Emond just before the kick-off had to drop out due to a hamstring injury – had to hear. The Rouches hoped to be a new brilliant impression of Mehdi Carcela that this time not the scoreboard would be removed by the VAR, but also the vice-Golden Shoe was not at home.
Twenty minutes before time, was still so far: Leandro Trossard ran very well with the cross from the right of Joakim Maehle, popped on the great anticipatory Guillermo Ochoa and saw from the corner of his eye how Mbwana Samatta the evening saved by the roof of the goal to decide.
In place of by pushing out looking for the reassuring 2-0, earned Genk a little at the foot of the brake. Almost benefited Standard for the 1-1: Mehdi Carcela dropped a perfect ball in, the sixteen, the second pole detached Zinho Vanheusden forgot his foot against the cross. It proved to be an expensive oblivion, because with one press of the accelerator was Genk weather at the Liege goal to make the victory secure. For the second time in the match proved to be the combination Maehle-Trossard-Samatta is crucial: the Dane floated on his right side rapidly everyone over, Trossard let the ball go through to Samatta thing to do. 2-0 for Genk, that in a defeat, the gap with Standard, could see melt away to eight points but now less than fourteen lengths advantage on the Rouches. The Luminus Arena should prepare themselves for a party, all of the possible injury of Leandro Trossard in the final stage, however, some concerns lead. It should be clear that Genk is ready for Play-off 1. Standard stays behind with a poor 16 39 outdoors.
