December promises to be a great month for KV Kortrijk. The guys never had to over speed last night and were provisionally sixth after a smooth 0-2 win over Syring. Seraing becomes ready again for reflection after 0 to 12.
After the defeat to Circle, Syring coach Hosseini and Bernier Condom sacrificed for Poiti and Sambo, hoping to stop the losing streak. At home and with KV Kortrijk as an opponent, it is not an impossible task. But the guys have been doing really well since Luca Elsner’s flag flight. Under Belhoussine, they lost only to Klopp and Circle and took 13 out of 27, with the French-Algerian in the lead.
Kortrijk created the core team at the Stade du Pairy. Since Gueye’s withdrawal, this has meant that Badamosi was deep in the striker and Moreno replaced Mbayo. It was the player’s first and best chances, but Deitch didn’t get into much trouble with the attempts of Kadri, Moreno and Slimani. In the back, Seraing with the Del Fabro-Boulenger duo is often cheese with holes. Moreno seized the opportunity and scored, but his goal was disallowed for a foul only seen by Wim Smit.
Syring realized that the response was better. Mazez, who Liege rely heavily on, was already looking forward to more from last Tuesday against Cercle and was looking for space. He could also have scored the opening goal after 20 minutes, but Gallo hit hard at the goal.
Belhossein had already warned of this before the match. “In order not to walk away from here without points, you have to stay sharp for 95 minutes.” Moreno wanted it, but was replaced somewhat abruptly during the break. The City Mercenaries, however, were close on target for the second time, but he shot at the post rather than the net.
Mbaio falls into the well
Halfway through, after a modest first game, one conclusion can be drawn: whoever scores first, wins. This honor was reserved for Kortrijk. An attempt was blocked by D’Haene, but Palaversa was more successful: 0-1. It must be said that Belhoucine watched it quite well and Mbayo did a good replacement. Liège’s sluggish defense couldn’t control it and Bollinger pulled the emergency brake. Soleimani missed two penalties this season, but failed to catch the third. Mission accomplished, mission accomplished for Fica, who are currently sixth and want a cup competition against Anderlecht on Thursday.
