AA Gent was given a simpler task in the eighth finals with second-tier side Lommel, so the football gods entered the quarter-final draw. With Standard, you face a strong opponent.
But Ghent filled with a lot of confidence in the confrontation at Glamco Arena last weekend, as it only gave the Liege players a 3-1 defeat in the competition, with the help of superstar Tarik Tsoudali.
Club Brugge will face OHL in the quarter-finals, where Westerlo has been narrowly eliminated. Club Brugge and OHL can also prepare for the cup match, because more than a week ago they were already looking at each other in competition in Leuven.
Anderlecht escaped unscathed in the penalty shootout against Syring and would not leave him far in the quarter-final against KV Kortrijk. Although… at the end of November, they were already stuck in a 1-1 draw in the competition.
KV Mechelen receives Eupen in the last quarter-finals. Matches are scheduled for Tuesday 21st, Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd December. The semi-finals, home and away, will take place on 1-3 February and 1-3 March.
