Membership Brugge once more didn’t beat a small workforce. After Eupen (2:1), Zulte Waregem scored factors. Karl Hofkens is just not on an excellent honeymoon.
“Mbaye has a penchant for being brief on Jan Breidel,” spouse Sandrine Leye whispered to us earlier than the match started. “So, who is aware of…” She talked about, amongst different issues, Leye’s hat-trick in “The Membership” in 2013. Instances have modified: then Zulte Waregem dreamed of the title, now they don’t wish to go down, however that is the benefit of Leia. that even on this context, he needs to see the identical soccer as 9 years in the past: with a transparent construction, recognizable assault patterns and attacking wing-backs. Nicolas Rommens can allure in midfield.
Nonetheless, Essevi’s high participant wore a blue and black shirt and glided by the title Owen Otasowi. Zulte Waregem went harmful 3 times within the first half, 3 times based mostly on Otasovy’s awkwardness. Fortunately for the Membership, Simon Mignolet was in good condition, as in earlier video games, in any other case the Blue-Blacks would have fallen behind anyway. His two saves on makes an attempt by Jean-Luc Dompé, who continues to dream of climbing, had been phenomenal.
As of late, Mignolet is fascinated with overseas (increased) golf equipment akin to Napoli. Across the participant, they are saying that the goalkeeper should first determine for himself whether or not at 34 he nonetheless looks like a rival to the G5 – if not, then there isn’t a level in sitting on the desk utterly. Effectively, it stays to be hoped for the membership and the Belgian league that Mignolet is just not bored with the Belgian coast. It might be a disgrace for the membership, teammates and followers to lose such a participant. Though opponents might imagine in any other case. Hit him, yeah
Earlier than the break, the membership was not the machine it was at instances final season, nevertheless it created sufficient harmful phases. Ferran Jutgla ought to have at all times scored like this. Sammy Bossut carried out effectively on the first alternative on Utgle, leading to a painful encounter. Jutgla ought to have performed higher the second time: Kasper Nielsen – within the “Membership” is far increased on the sector than within the “Union” – put the striker alone in entrance of the objective, after which he … misplaced management. Then a long-range shot hit Bossuth’s fists. 0:0 to interrupt.
Nonetheless, this rating didn’t final lengthy on the scoreboard. As quickly because the second half started, the membership scored an awesome objective. On the sting of sixteen, Hans Vanaken, Kamal Sova and Andreas Skov Olsen created a wonderful triangle, after which the Dane was acutely aware sufficient to make the rating 1-0. A couple of minutes later, the winger discovered himself in an identical scenario when he was unable to swing the nets. And the Membership will complain about this inefficiency later within the match.
In any case, Zulte Waregem wasn’t within the temper to only settle for defeat – they are not the identical scared workforce from final season. The Fusion Membership went in search of an equalizer and located it: Ukrainian left-back Oleksandr Drambaev, who had hit at the very least 37 kph on the Pink Owl final week, managed to carry up Clinton Mata on the far submit to the toe of his boot to outmaneuver Mignolet. 1-1 certainly, and it was not even undeserved. If Ravi Tsuka had carried out a bit higher within the subsequent assault…
Karl Hofkens, who could not afford one other lack of factors after the loss at Eupen, needed to react. He nonetheless introduced Noah Lang between the strains – he didn’t really feel mentally prepared to start out resulting from issues with the switch. Apparently, it was attainable to make a raid, nevertheless it did little. Even continued to concentrate.
The membership begins the competitors to date removed from convincing. He received towards Racing Genk, however then he didn’t shine. In Eupen, soccer appeared like no different, and yesterday it was not sufficient. It’s important and on the identical time alarming that Mignolet was the very best Bruggeling 3 times in a row.
The distinction between the 2 new coaches couldn’t be larger. Zulte Waregem has been resurrected beneath Leie, whereas Membership Brugge continues to be looking beneath Hoefkens regardless of many investments. It should not have lasted too lengthy, the flute concerto is already burning.
