Disgusting scenes during the Anderlecht-Standard match. The cup match was completely derailed when fans of both teams started throwing torches and chairs at each other. Referee Bram van Drieshe stopped the match for a while. Commentator Peter Vandenemppt said: “It is questionable and reprehensible.”
“All hell has broken loose,” said our commentator Peter Vandenemppt. “Well, well, well… Unfortunately, this is what fuels the people who are arguing for a complete ban on visiting fans at away matches. Because some believe this should be possible.”
He continued: “Very sad scenes in Standard’s career.” “One seat after another is being lowered. Anderlecht fans can only look up. That this should happen again… is questionable and reprehensible.”
You saw it escalate during the second half. Frustration erupted.
“Our group was in that corner where those chairs are flying now,” presenter Karl Vaniwokerke testified. “You saw it escalate during the second half. The frustration just escalated.”
Referee Bram van Drieshe stopped the match for approximately ten minutes. After (relative) peace returned, work resumed.
There’s a problem: Anderlecht and Standard will meet again in the competition on Sunday. Will it be with or without fans after Thursday night’s disgrace?
