Keeps Deitch Nainggolan and Miyoshi from 1-0
Antwerp does not appear to have fully recovered from the painful Europa League defeat at Olympiacos. Seraing obviously caught his eye, lost in the derby against Standard, and started the match better. Botiz had to be alert with a long shot from Kelota.
Only after about 20 minutes Antwerp beeps for the first time. Nainggolan put in a solid effort from outside the box and Dietsch had to flatten to keep the ball out of his line. Seraing was briefly pinned, and Bollinger nearly passed Miyoshi into his own net.
Antwerp could not keep up the pressure in a match that went on without much danger on goal. Only with the break in sight did Syringe begin to tremble again. Nainggolan’s cross pass deviated slightly from Boulenger and so the separated Miyoshi could hit from close range. Deitch prevented 1-0 with a great reaction.
Frey scores and lets you score
Soon after the end of the first half, Antwerp again came close to scoring the opening goal. Nainggolan put Frey in the center with a clever pass, but showed that top scorers can miss badly. After a lesser attack on the ball, the Swiss decided to go too far. After a few minutes Miyoshi was allowed to attempt a pass from De Lat, but his shot was just blocked.
Just when Antwerp got the match in their hands, Syring hit ice cold in the switch. Jallow Mikotadze sent deep and scored the opening goal superbly over Botiz in the net.
Brisky stepped in and pulled Nainggolan and Fisher to the side in front of Benson and Jerkins. This duo brought a new dimension to the game of Antwerp. However, Antwerp was only able to turn up fifteen minutes before the end, thanks to Sering’s carelessness. Frey was allowed to head unimpeded from De Lat’s long throw in and Dich was surprised, too: 1-1.
Syring kept trying at the table. Almeida pulled the emergency brake when Marius suddenly managed to break through and was glad it stayed yellow. In the final stage, Frey made the difference again for Antwerp. He made his way to Seraing’s defense with strength and character and drew the winning goal over Gerkens’ head.
Condom: ‘Fry’s goal was a laugh’
Gordy condoms He was strict with Seraing after that. “I am not happy with the first half. We showed a lot of respect, when we had nothing to lose here. The second half went better, even though we lost in the end.”
The Seraing boss is not particularly comfortable with the way Seraing has collected the Equalizer. “Fry’s goal against him was laughable, you should never have conceded a goal like that. There was also a lack of aggressiveness in the second goal. It’s sad because a win here would have meant a lot to Syring and now we come back empty-handed. We always have to learn from our mistakes, but doing So it’s more fun when you win.”
Brisk: “Proud of the team”
relief in Brian BriskyAntwerp was able to correct a crooked situation. “We knew it was going to be a tough match, Syringa is a strong team that plays good football. But I thought we were the best team, we created the most chances. We didn’t finish our chances at 100 per cent, and then if you concede a goal it becomes more difficult. I’m proud of half The last hour. Then there was more commitment, strength and energy. In the end, we had a well-deserved victory here.”
Despite the victory, Brisky did not remain blind to his team’s poor game. “I’m not completely satisfied with the football we’re playing now. That’s nobody in the locker room. But it’s not easy to play against teams like Syring who are very compact. We also miss some of the mechanics between the players, which is a big problem at the moment. But I’m proud of the team. They showed strength and quality to win that match.”
