kv oostende - beerschot 3 - 1
After a hard fought but sportive game the Coastboys keep the 3 important points at home.
The coastboys started the game brilliantly. After barely 3 minutes the referee made the eleven meter call. Frans hooked the spinning Bätzner on a foul. Gueye sent the goalie the wrong way from the spot (1-0).. No sooner had the game kicked off than the home team doubled their score. A header by Gueye was badly handled by Vanhamel. Capon was there in the nick of time to punish the mistake (2-0).. The visitors showed mental resilience and went after the double sacrifice gradually looking for the tying goal. Hubert had to be alert for a slide in from Coulibaly. The home team did not let up and combined very well at times, resulting in a number of excellent chances. Vanhamel saved Capon's attempt with more luck than skill, and just before half time the goalie was alert to a deep slide from Rocha.
The visitors came out of the dressing room with a different attitude and immediately an attempt by Coulibaly that Hubert had a lot of problems with. Our goalie was alert as he tapped a shot from Suzuki over the bar. On the counter-attack the Kustboys got the necessary space with a number of chances for Gueye and Bätzner but Vanhamel was just as concentrated as his opposite number. Amade found the right hole and put the round thing into his net (3-0).. At the other end, Coulibaly managed to kick a great chance from 16 metres out towards the North Sea. Soumaré scored for the visitors (3-1) after the VAR intervened.. At the other end, Ambrose found himself alone in front of goal but Vanhamel saved again. In the final moments of the game Beerschot were awarded a penalty, but after the intervention of VAR the decision was revoked.
