CLUB BRUGGE - KV OOSTENDE 3 - 0
The Coastboys played a creditable game against the national champions, but the two yellow cards of Fortes shortly before half time were decisive for the further course of the match.
Fortes started for the coastal boys and Osifo got the trust of Blessin again. Hendry was given a place in the starting line-up.
A stimulated national champion started the match brightly. The first chance of the game was for Vanaken but his shot went wide of the visiting goal. The visitors responded with a dangerous cross from Gueye. At the other end, Sowah's place ball went just wide and Balanta's shot went wide. DThe home team took the lead when Sowah found Lang in front of goal. The Dutchman outmanoeuvred Capon and left Hubert without a chance from close range (1-0).. On the half hour, Gueye, who was on the infield, was just unable to reach his brother striker Kvasina. Gueye had a chance to equalise after a corner kick, but Mignolet had a great reflex. After that the Bruges goalie had to go flat on a slide from D'Arpino. Just before half time, newcomer Fortes was given two yellow cards in a short space of time, forcing him to take an early shower.
After the break the home team immediately created danger with, among others, a shot by Vanaken. KVO reacted through Rocha and Mignolet had to stay alert. The home side extended their lead after Vanaken headed in a cross from Mata in the second zone (2-0).. On the hour, D'Arpino was forced to retire and was replaced by Koziello. The third goal of the game came when Lang tapped in a cross from Vanaken (3-0).. Hubert then held KVO to a 3-0 lead.
