KRC Genk has in his heenwedstrijd of the 1/16 finals of the Europa League 0-0 gelijkgespeeld on the field of Slavia Prague. Alejandro Pozuelo – in the middle of a transferstorm – fell after the rest of the Genkenaars and played a hell of a match. The return in Genk next week promises to bite your fingernails to be.
Slavia Prague – KRC Genk can be summarized in two parts: before and after the subbing of Alejandro Pozuelo. If it is still not clear enough how hard the People their Spanish hub would be missed if he is effectively to Toronto would leave, then the European match in Prague Thursday night, the final confirmation of its indispensability for the current Genk.
Pozuelo started as expected on the bench in the Eden Arena. ‘Not a difficult decision’, said Clement in advance. “I have the workouts over the past week seen and I have spoken with him.’ Clement dropped Fiolic at the place of his Spanish captain. Not bad footballer, but it immediately became clear that KRC Genk without his patron that touch of genius missing that the past few months, Belgium and Europe conquered.
Genk played stiff for the break and found little holes in the Czech block. Both teams met one time, the pole. Skoda after 19 minutes for Slavia Prague, Trossard fifteen minutes later for the visitors. Also Fiolic struck almost touch, but the plaatsbal of the Croatian midfielder went just next.
In the 55th minute there was the moment: the subbing of Pozuelo. ‘He would like to be there for the team and has asked for extra to be allowed to warm up’, had Clement previously indicated. An understatement of the Genk coach. For those who doubted or Pozuleo be motivated for this trip to Prague, immediately got his answer on the field. The Spaniard divided and ruled from the first minute of subbing. With two beautiful steekballetjes he put The Norre and Samatta only for purpose, but those two were the after to Genk the vital uitdoelpunt to score.
