Never before has a team zespuntenvoorsprong after five days in PO1 is still the hands. Also KRC Genk seems that is not going to be. The People conquered now the Ghelamco Arena and defeated AA Gent with 0-1. 15 to 18 in PO1, the score of a champion. Let Club Brugge Sunday afternoon points against Anderlecht, they are the Luminus Arena, the champagne is already cold.
AA Gent have you as a journalist one of the best views in the league. High and dry in the stands, nice and central, a perfect view of the entire playing field. Ideal to in one glance can see how important Vadis Odjidja for the home team. Three matches, he stood to the side after his openingsspeeldag against Club Brugge and the light just went out. Three match in which the Buffalo’s little fist could. Man, what is Odjidja essential for the Ghent football. Good position, the game speed up, purely in the wager: The midfielder will be Wednesday in the cup final against KV Mechelen play a crucial role, for sure.
Almost a VAR-moment
Also well visible from the Ghent perstribune: the VAR that managed to avoid how the Belgian arbitration a new main differences is increased. How good the run and the corresponding goal of Ito five minutes for peace was, how clear was the offence of which he has been on Dejaegere. Everyone had seen it, except the referee Lardot. And the VAR, so it seemed the first time. Only when everyone stood to exit stairs, got the ref for a call having a look at the images to go and have a look. A short look later corrected his decision.
It was so that AA Gent and KRC Genk with a 0-0 the rest went. The Buffalo had, under the impulse of Odjidja opening to drawn, but Genk came after a quarter of an hour better in the match and was regularly Samatta with a long ball. The best chances were for the home team. A charming cross of Sørloth ended up with Asare that Vukovic on his way to hit and for the first time in the basis, the starting Kvilitaia failed eye-to-eye with the Genk goalkeeper. The titelfavoriet could be her dominant football not create and escaped, Gent of her turn tankte trust with the eye on Wednesday. It would be after rest even can tensioning, the duel between the number first and number last of Play-off 1. This illusion was there anyway.
Any nice curl of Trossard
Not for long. Ten minutes was the second half on the road when the proportions between the two teams in focus were taken. Malinovskyi took the drawn Trossard that the ball any time in the farthest corner curled. Genk on roses, Gent got for the umpteenth time in PO1 is a mental shade to endure. What followed, was a vain attempt by the home team for the tide to turn and a Genk that sophisticated waited for the final blow. Long waited. A cracked ado of Samatta went just in front of a new shot distance of Trossard lacked direction, Ito found Kaminski on his way, Samatta missed a reuzekans and Trossard hit the pole. It continued to shiver, but Ghent – where Odjidja early in the second half changed, which was proved to be silenced.
Even more, in the slot gave the home team a new mental bit to handle when captain Asare injured to the side. Annoying with the eye on the cup final, the only match that this season of tel is for the Buffalo’s. What a difference with Genk. Every match nowadays is a party. It remained 0-1. Still a few of those results and the title is within.
