Jupiler Pro LeagueThe evening, of course, was dominated by an honorable meek to Mr. Michel. Thanks in part to Jan Vertonghen, Anderlecht won an unbeaten match. The negative series has been discontinued, but there is still no sign of resurrection.
The public was unable to act. Hand in hand with one, a little whistling with the other. Anderlecht was standing in the first half, that was a thing. That was a month and a half before the competition. At that time, people were still sitting in Lotto Park wearing sunglasses and hats for the match against Syring. But after one in twelve Anderlecht knows again what it feels like to win, that’s all that matters now.
The evening began with an attractive tribute to Mr. Michel Verschoren. Even Lang Guoju had to make way for a sober and humble farewell on his court. Verschoren’s farewell ended with a painful moment of silence. Silence lasted for a while. Kortrijk put on a number that was rehearsed from the start, and Al-Masudi appeared only to Van Kromburg. Fortunately for Purple & White itself, the Algerian was shocked with all this freedom and left this enormous opportunity unused. Anderlecht survived a small disaster there. Imagine that you also have to start a race where the water is almost on your lips.
Hands went together for the first time twenty minutes later, Julien Doranville came on injured Frances Amuzo. The new “Wonder Boy” is the hope in the days of fear. Doranville’s speed was the basis of the first truly full attack, as Morello’s shot into a corner was blocked. Jan Vertonghen also took his chance, and Sterke Jan’s commotion went away.
The preparatory work for the opening goal came from an unexpected but not quite source. Zeno’s new Debast, the Red Devil, praises his offensive qualities for a reason. The split opening on Doranville initially was no danger, but in the second stage, Debast dropped the ball to Murillo’s head. The Panamanian was smart for Verscharen and got off the ground. His first goal of the season, but Jari was not a happy one. Is it becoming an ubiquitous thing now, not cheering after a goal? Or was the anger more restrained? Vershatrien was one of the boys in Bucharest who was presented with a default bill at Westerlo and he may not have liked it. Phyllis Matsuo breathed a sigh of relief on the bench, and failure against Kortrijk was no longer an option for Vincent Kompany’s successor.
Defensively, Anderlecht has hardly had problems, although you never know with Lamkel Zee. Van Crombrough was attentive to the commotion of the Cameroonian. Offensively, the level of play wasn’t like announcing a patient’s recovery. Anderlecht often chooses the side option while Fábio Silva begs to be played vertically. Anderlecht looked certain he would win the hour, and it’s no coincidence after setting a record. Murillo extended a corner kick and Ashimiro’s header at the far post. The way Kortrijk got into the match again illustrates the period in which Anderlecht found himself. Hoedt wanted to blindly block a corner kick and put the ball straight into Slimani’s body, perhaps the strangest goal Van Kromburg has ever conceded.
Jan Vertonghen was the record international who prevented Anderlecht from questioning again. Vertonghen nodded in his debut for Anderlecht against the ropes with a corner kick from Rafailov. Anderlecht went ahead. Tanaka dealt with Rafailov in the penalty area. Everyone watched him, except for referee Verbumin, who saw Schwalbe. The VAR flagged his fatal mistake and Rafailov converted the penalty. Anderlecht took the much-needed win. Phyllis Matsuo has bought herself extra time and must use the international break to regain confidence in his own abilities.
Jari Vershatern: “It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to score”
For the first time on the scoreboard this season: Yari Verschaeren. The purple and white number ten paved the way for a simple victory over Kortrijk. “Given the club’s situation, this win is definitely a good thing for us. We knew that just three points were enough today. We played well, it’s up to us to build on that. It was also an important victory for the club emotionally. We wanted to honor Michel Verschoren appropriately and we succeeded.” “.
The fact that Vershatteren scored himself made him even happier. “Very nice, it’s been a while. Preferably, I would have liked to make a second, but anyway, I’m happy with that. The most important thing is that we have the three points in our pockets. Now after a week and a half of lull for some, that’s also welcome.”
