After last week’s game, our Kemphanen will be looking for honour @ the Kiel Olympic Stadium. Both clubs will be put forward the last weeks as candidate winners for the second period. In any case, the winner of this duel is already taking a good step in the direction, although of course you never know in this difficult series, where in the end everyone can win from each other.
The last few days there has been a lot of activity around het Kuipje. No less than two talented youngsters were transfered. Baris Alici (Fenerbahce SK) and Simon Paulet (Swansea City) join our team and go in search of playing minutes.
Coach Peeters selected the next 20 names: Kristof Van Hout, Gilles Dewaele, Fabien Antunes, Kel Ofori, Lukas Van Eenoo, Guillaume De Schryver, Sava Petrov, Christoffer Remmer, Stephen Buyl, Bryan Van Den Bogaert, Kader Keita, Noël Soumah, Christian Brüls, Baris Alici, Igor Vetokele, Koen Van Langendonck, Christophe Janssens, Kurt Abrahams, Berke Özer and Nader Ghandri.
Our captain, Maxime Biset, is missing in the squad because of the fifth yellow card he got last week and Ambroise Gboho does occasionally pick up with the group, but he is not a match fit yet.
The referee on the Kiel again becomes a Dutchman named Robin Hensgens. This 26-year old referee comes from the well-known – for those who like skiing – Landgraaf and he has joined the Masterclass in the Netherlands since this season. This means that he is allowed to lead games on the second level in the Netherlands and Belgium. So he comes to Belgium for the first time. If you look at his statistics, you see that on 55 matches, he has already sent a player to the dressing room 15 times before and has already put the ball on the penaltyspot 18 times.
