Football 1A“Anti-football” sounded at the AFAS ground last week. Against KV Mechelen, STVV actually restrained itself in self-defense, but three welcome points – with one clean sheet – came to Limburg. On Sunday, STVV could make another attempt to keep home zero against Antwerp.
They are quietly looking forward to Sunday’s game against Antwerp in Hasbenko. K.V. The win against Mitchell was visible to the men of coach Bernd Hollerbach, who did not lose touch with the top eight. Anderlecht is in eighth place with just three points.
It has been a while since STVV was able to submit a clean sheet. The last was on September 13 against Beersat (0-1). Goalkeeper Daniel Schmidt and the extension are an inspiration to the entire Druins defense, which seems to be increasingly strong. The trio of Lavalée – Teixeira – Leistner have kept their affairs in order, along with Hashioka and Caucasus they make it hard for any opponent on the wingbacks. “Not only did we have a clean sheet, we didn’t miss any chances,” the Japanese goalie said after the match. “We created a good volume and can now keep that zero as often as possible.”
During the international break, Hollerbach did not have to miss many boys. Only Jonathan Puerto (Angola), Liberto Cagos (New Zealand), Kyo Pots (Belgium U19), Matthias Delorge and Arnaud Tony (Belgium U18) have spent the last one week elsewhere. Preparations for the match against Antwerp went smoothly. “We used the long ball mainly against KV Mechelen, but it is important now to increase our confidence in possession,” Schmidt said.
5 out of 21
It is doubtful whether STVV will get a lot of the ball next Sunday. Antwerp is in second place. Although the formation of Brian Prisque has stumbled a bit in recent weeks, they entered the international break with a win over Anderlecht (2-0). The loss of points against Zulte Waregem, the cup elimination against KVC Westerlow and the offense in the Europa League are all hard evidence of this. Can you take advantage of STVV and finally replace those bad 5s at 21 on Stain?
