The long battle is not yet fought. Club Brugge thanks to a goal by Mats Zipper with 0-1 won on the field of AA Gent. Following week to within three points of Genk as the topper home win of the leader.
The misnoegde Ghent public, however, was not at home, and never before had for and during a ‘Battle of Flanders’ is so deafeningly quiet in the Ghelamco Arena. Yes, the players of AA Gent took 45 minutes – under the impetus of a particularly busy Bezus – a creditable attempt to own fans to charm but a cunning Club Brugge came around the half-hour all to easy to lead through a deadly triangle Vanaken-Shaper-Zipper.
For AA Gent brought coach Thorup actually Rosted on the kick-off in a 4-4-2 formation . No direct hit so soon was because the Norwegian central defender who is already two months not move more got, had on the rechtsachterpositie bekerzondaar Souquet – against Malinwa hopelessly under-preserved – forgotten, but the Norwegian had a terrible afternoon against Diatta. Result: Souquet came for the rest of the Norwegian replaced.
Offensive brought that first half by the way, just one specific stage with Ghent’s shooting skill: Sorloth continued well and reached his ploegmakker Yaremchuk but his attempt some in the community arms of Horvath. Also stayed in Ghent all too often mired in good intentions but also guilty of bad flankvoorzetten and unsuccessful combinations.
The VAR demands a starring role on after rest
On the hour, however, it was still touch when the American goalkeeper of blue-black and ghastly in the error went on a afstandspoging of Odjidja. But the VAR had, however, correctly noted that the Dejaegere annoying offside was in the same phase, whereby the ‘ lead remained.
Verstraete tested a little later then again the quality of the bar when he Horvath under fire took. A few moments later, was the Vanaken on reference to Danjuma, the party finally seemed to throw but once again handle VAR Kris Bellon for allegedly being offside.
Eventually did the visitors after rest, not even the accelerator to push it to the offensive young Buffalo’s final count. Thorup and threw Dompé and David have two gebuisden of the cup final in the fight but the home team appeared to score yet again is ‘mission impossible’, which a very pale Club Brugge smoothly remained. In the slotkwartier was also a goal of Souquet rejected due to prior offside.
Bruges can so from tomorrow, with a gap of six points to go charging at the crucial highlight of next Sunday against leader Genk. At the Buffalo’s remains mired in recession. A new defeat helps the embattled Thorup far further, his position wavers with the eye on the aftermath of this Friday in Liège. Meanwhile, has the gap with number five in Anderlecht all four points. The mood among the fans was certainly not happier.
