Club Brugge KV :
Number fifteen for Club Brugge. And nobody can do anything against it. Most points caught, most goals made, the most matches won, the whole season also looked the most attractive team. In short: the best team in the country has become champion. That’s the way it should be. Club struggled European, but was sufficiently armed in the competition to put the failing competition at a great distance. Blauw-zwart will have been in the lead from matchday 1 to matchday 40.
Club Brugge had the difficult visit to Sclessin last weekend. And the fear was well-founded because Standard was completely absent in the Club opening phase. The lead was more than deserved. And then unfortunately all attention went to the video. Did Ruud Vormer benefit from his contact with the arm or not? The referee ruled not and the goal of Jelle Vossen was approved. In the second half there was a lot of struggle but not a nice football. Nothing changed at the stand and so Blue-Black could celebrate the title.
‘We are victorious champion’, Vormer was smiling afterwards. ‘The last few weeks there was not much extra nervousness in the changing room, but I personally started to become nervous. I wanted to finish it against Anderlecht and that did not work out. Eventually it became Standard. That is equally beautiful. Our play-offs were not great, but in the regular competition we showed that we are the deserved champion. Immediately after the game, a nice party broke out in the changing room, but tonight we will really break loose. ‘
AA Gent has played his best two matches of Play-off 1 with Hein Vanhaezebrouck along the line. It was from the first matchday of Play-Off 1, when visiting their ex-coach, that the Buffalo’s could convincingly win a match. The reveil comes just in time, because the three points were needed to hold the fourth place. AA Gent holds the European ticket in fourth place in their own hands and they know that European football is a minimum requirement.
Ghent therefore played against Anderlecht last weekend. AA Gent was still searching in the first half, but Anderlecht did not do more than tease and shouted about themselves that it was eclipsed in the second half. The Ghent goal testified to grinta. Midfielder Anderson Esiti who came forward in his own sixteen and gave away with Nana Asara, Yuya Kubo with a fantastic touch and Roman Yaremchuk who rushed forward. His cross reached Moses Simon, who scored his first goal since December 3, 2017.
In the second half, after a flank change, Simon performed as always. ‘I do not care on which edge I have to play, even though I prefer to play on the left. Ultimately, the team interest prevails’, according to Simon. ‘When Yaremchuk started his action on the left, I immediately realized that I had to be in the right place. That ball went well in the end. “In the added time Simon got a change of applause:” I do feel that this was my last game in the Ghelamco Arena. At least I feel ready for a new step, but first I want to play the World Cup in good health. ‘
