In this closed game, the first chance fell on the counter. And she was for us. Christian Brüls sent Igor Vetokele deep, who came face to face with goalkeeper Mike Vanhamel van Beerschot between two defenders. The goalie parried the ball and also in the rebound Sava Petrov could not get the ball against the nets.
Beerschot was dangerous three times before the break. Koen Van Langendonck was always in the way.
In the second half the goal came out of nowhere. After a cross from the left, Saint-Louis got a little too much space from our defenders and he was able to get the ball into the goal next to Van Langendonck (0-1). Then you know that we have to go down because Beerschot chooses a low block. The best chance was for Christian Brüls, but his shot from outside the sixteen disappeared next to the goal. It was only a millimeter, but again it was just not.
A hard-fought match, but in the end the Rats went home with the three points.
