An adult Westerlo has more than earned the three points taken home. Gilles Dewaele scored his first league goal for our Kemphanen. Then the match was played out in a very secure way. Ambroise Gboho managed to get 0-2 in the second half and in the end it was a bit of a shiver at the end, when Beerschot got a penalty kick and used it.
That was not expected of Westerlo today. Not a single moment did we really get in trouble. The tactical plan of our training staff worked well again. The ball went from foot to foot and Beerschot stood there and looked at it. The spy head of the home team shouted at a certain moment: “hunt, hunt”. Says enough about the difference in playing quality between the two teams today.
On the other side Berke Özer only had to show himself for the first time in minute 38. A hard bang from Jorn Vancamp from the second line scorched his fists. In the resumption, Mboko got a second chance, but he popped off furiously. We rested with a 0-1 lead.
The best chance for the home team came through the foot of Bryan Van Den Bogaert! Bryan almost defeated his own goalkeeper with an unfortunate deviation. However, Berke was on standby.
Beerschot came back in the game five minutes before time. A sliding Biset took Noubissi with him and referee Debeuckelaere put the ball on the spot. Comedy capers were in for it, as three people claimed the ball. Coach Losada made the decision on the sidelines and Holzhauser, who had fallen, kicked the ball untenably into the Westelse goal (1-2).
That’s all, and the supporters who came along were able to start their party. First Bob Peeters let himself go and then it was Dewaele and Antunes’ turn to create the atmosphere in the stands in Kiel.
