Jupiler Pro LeagueEven without Peter Maes in the pit, Berchot continues her funeral procession through the Belgian football competition. Beerschot lost at Ostend Square with a 3-1 and is now in a sad round of 1 of 24. KVO gave herself some extra oxygen after 0 of 9.
If we are to believe the board of directors of Berchot, the group of players had their say in firing coach Peter Maes and two of his permanent assistants. Mayonnaise doesn’t pack anything of the sort. If you then start out as a team in Ostend: it makes you think. Just seven minutes later, Beerschot owed two goals. First, Gueye converted a penalty applied by the VAR (France pressed Bätzner). Then Capone scored from a corner kick. Ostend – who had just lost three games in a row and never scored a goal – was immediately on the roses.
After that dramatic start, Beerchot tried to rally himself, but at first it didn’t lead to much. Between the two penalty areas, KVO was “harder, better, faster, stronger” in the first half. The home team was in control and shortly before the break they threatened twice, through Capone and Ambrose. Goalkeeper Fanamel was always standing in his way. On the flip side, Fanamel’s teammate Hubert didn’t have to get his snow-white shirt dirty before the break.
At the start of the second half, Bierchut’s interim coach Marc Noe introduced a striker Vaca to defender France, which quickly led to some chances. Coulibaly, Soumare and Suzuki did not pass the ball over the goal line. Between them, Ostend resisted several times. In one of those shots, Amadi made the score 3-0. Books closed immediately.
Sumari’s savior – who didn’t quite know how to score – was just one of the stats. In the end, the three points remained at ‘t Zeetje, as coach Alexander Plessin’s side moved towards the sub-top. Bierchut remains finally desolate. Was Peter Maes going to watch TV at home?
