First Half

The first chance of the match was for RWDM through a corner, but the ball was kicked high over.

The first yellow card of the match goes to our Kemphanen. In the seventh minute, Kouya Mabea brought down Nzuzi with a hefty tackle, earning him a yellow card.

In the 15th minute, Rubin Seigers created the first good chance for KVC Westerlo, he took a good shot on goal after a corner but goalkeeper Théo Defourny was well placed and managed to keep the ball out of the goal.

Until about the 30′ minute it was mainly RWDM who created the chances. They scored twice from the edge of the sixteen-metre area, but the ball went wide of the goal twice.

In the 35th minute Maxim De Cuyper cut into the box and passed the ball to Edisson Jordanov, but he shot just over the goal.

About seven minutes later RWDM gave a good deep ball to Nangis, but goalie David Jensen was alert and got out of the way to clear the ball.

The score was 0-0 at halftime, after a very weak first half.

Second Half

Our Kemphanen showed strong commitment immediately after coming out of the dressing room. Tuur Dierckx created a few shots, but was unable to get the ball between the posts. There were also a few more chances. In the first fifteen minutes the Kemphans clearly dominated the game.

Jan Bernat had a good chance in front of goal but was unable to work the ball in. It is the umpteenth good chance in the match that just will not go in. A few minutes later, a strong tackle was made from behind in the penalty area, but the referee decided not to award a penalty.

The last ten minutes our players put a lot of pressure on the game. RWDM reacted to this with a few mistakes to stop the attacks. Thomas Van den Keybus scored in the final seconds with a solid distance shot, but Théo Defourny kept the ball out of his goal. Then the final whistle sounds.

The first half was disappointing for our Kemphans, but in the second half we were clearly stronger. Nevertheless, the points are shared in ’t Kuipje with a 0-0 draw.
