AA Gent qualified for the third preliminary round of the Conference League, today, Thursday, despite losing 2-0 in Norway to Valerenga. Buffalo is ahead thanks to a 4-0 win in the first leg. “I’ll keep it short. We succeeded and that was the main thing,” coach Hein Vanheisbrück replied.
“We would have preferred to see the end result differently,” Vanhaezebrouck explained. “We were soon 1-0 down after a brawl in front of the goal, where we didn’t get the ball well. Fortunately, we were able to quickly restore the Norwegian pressure. We didn’t have problems again in the first half after that. In the second half we came out better even in the brawl, but it She didn’t go in. Here we left it to kill the match. The score came 2-0 and then a corner kick where we defended poorly. It could have been a lot easier, but we’re done.”
“Valerenga was all gone at first,” HVH continued. “They were quick on the roses, but couldn’t keep up. I’m glad we were able to give some players minutes to watch the upcoming matches. Four more matches will follow in the next two weeks. So we will need everyone.”
