The Waterloo Ducks and the Dragons scowl

belgaimage 176185184 full 2048x1365 1 - The Waterloo Ducks and the Dragons scowl - The weeks go by and look the same for the Brabançons who continue to stand still and who still only have 4 points in as many games. Moreover, the meeting did not start in the best possible way for Wat, which evolved without Victor Charlet (back pain), and which only cashed after 75 seconds via Charlie Van Damme . The home team dominated in a sterile manner and it was, finally, in the 24th minute that William Ghislain found the net. At the start of the second half, Ignacio Nepote gave the advantage back to Lierrois but Louis Depelsenaire(50th) brought back a smile to the local supporters. Waterloo pushed and made the game but the Herakles held on and did not let go despite the debauchery of energy. Next Sunday, Jean Willems' men will have to win a visit to the Braxgata to avoid being left behind in the standings by the other favorites.

La Gantoise and Louvain want to hook up the right wagon

B9728372179Z.1 20210919231433 000G8JIVCV99.1 0 - La Gantoise and Louvain want to hook up the right wagon - As expected, the honorary division championship will be undecided and many clubs could do well and take advantage of the probable downturns of certain favorites. This will certainly be the case for Louvain and Gantoise which currently occupy, and quietly, 4th and 5th place in the standings after 4 days. A duel at daggers drawn that ended with a fairly logical division. "I knew that we should expect this type of reception from our opponent", immediately recognized Pascal Kina, the Ghent coach. “But we should have come away with the 3 points if I refer to our second half. We played well in the second half, but there is still work to be done to improve. It is necessary to acquire certain automatisms, but it is not easy. When we hesitate unfortunately we make some mistakes. Obviously I wanted to win, but we came up against a good team from Louvain who will take many more points throughout this season. "

The Flandriens and the Brabançons neutralized each other (2-2), but they demonstrated that they will have to be counted on throughout the season to compete with the favorites. As expected, the honorary division championship will be undecided and many clubs could do well and take advantage of the probable downturns of certain favorites. This will certainly […]
