After the rainy game last Saturday, 35 minutes still had to be played at Kiel Stadium. Circle took a 0-1 lead and could easily keep up, even though Beerchot was the better team.
The first part of the match ended 0-1 in favor of Cercle Brugge after Olivier Deman’s goal. So Berchot had 35 minutes to put things right.
Bearchot resolutely chose to attack by bringing Abdoli Sanyang and Blessing to you. Cercle Brugge was forced to make a switch. For example, Hannes Van der Bruggen had to take place in the stands after a hit last Saturday and Leonardo Lopez took his place.
Anyone who thought Circle would come back to defend his 0-1 lead was disappointed. Circle chose offensive football but could not threaten Van Hamel. After that, the two teams tied the match.
Until the 77th minute when Jorn Dom managed to take it out, but the ball went too far from Didilon’s goal. In the 83rd minute it was again a hot spot for Circle’s goal. It’s not Holzhauser with a cross but Didilon can clear the ball in time before a Berchut player can put his head next to it.
In the 92nd minute, Berchot got another corner. Joren Dom got the ball on his head but Didellon was able to save it at the right moment.
Berchut’s best chances were in these 35 minutes, but they could no longer score. For example, Cercle won the season opener for the first time since 2011.
