First half

We see the first chance of the match fall early on the side of Deinze. The ball is curled towards the far corner from the left, but poses no danger to goalie David Jensen. A few minutes later, Deinze gets the same chance again, this time due to a bad pass in defense that is intercepted, but the ball goes wide of the goal.

In the tenth minute, our Kemphans fall behind. A too hard pass from Jordanov towards Van Eenoo is intercepted after which Lennart Mertens is sent deep. Mertens outskirts Perdichizzi and puts the ball past David Jensen, 0-1. A few minutes later Westerlo could almost respond. De Cuyper sees his first shot being blocked by the defence but manages to get out again, but the shot goes wide. Westerlo keeps on attacking and we see Thomas Van den Keybus turn away from his opponent. The ball went into the bottom right corner but went just wide.

In minute 37 the deficit is almost increased. Prychynenko kicked the ball just against the post after a good free kick. Westerlo went on the counter-attack and Maxim De Cuyper had a chance to break through, but he was brought down in the sixteen meter zone. In the final phase of the first half Deinze gets another good chance after a deviated ball via Mabea. Jensen kept the ball out of reach of the goal with a fine save.

The players go into the dressing rooms with a 0-1 deficit. We have to do better in the second half.

Second Half

In the first quarter of the second half we get the perfect chance to score the equalizer. Foster takes the ball well and goes towards goalkeeper Vandenberghe but sees his shot go just wide via the goalkeeper. The resulting corner kick was headed towards the keeper by Perdichizzi. Deinze reacted immediately through an attack by Youssef Challouk. Challouk plays the ball to Dansoko who kicks it in, 0-2.

Westerlo went in search of the tying goal. Lyle Foster breaks through on the left flank and sees Daci at the far post. The ball is intercepted by a Deinze defender and Daci is unable to hit the ball. Coach Jonas De Roeck decides that it is time for changes. Léo Seydoux and Kyan Vaesen replace Jan Bernat and Edisson Jordanov.

In minute 76 we see the deficit increase even further. Deinze counters via Youssef Challouk and Dylan De Belder. De Belder takes a shot and the ball lands in the goal via the leg of Rubin Seigers, 0-3.

After 94 minutes, the end of the game has ended. We go down 0-3 at home.
