Great cup match with Antwerp the winners. In a match rich in goals, OH Leuven sold their body to the defending champions at a high price. Mazes opened the scoring for the hosts early, but Janssen quickly responded with two goals. Van den Bosch gave Antwerp – without Vermeeren – a double bonus. Although the 2-3 and red from Janssen still cause some tension.

Antwerp – OHL in brief:

Man of the match: Vincent Janssen is thriving in his new role as a shadow striker and playmaker. The Antwerp striker was everywhere on the ball and also capitalized on this excellent performance by scoring twice. In the end, he received a second yellow card, but his influence today was too great to be the deciding factor.

distinct: The match was overshadowed in advance by the imminent transfer of Arthur Vermeeren. In order not to take any more risks, the young Red Devil was finally removed from selection. However, he was allowed to sit on the bench as a temporary equipment man.

Situation: Antwerp qualified for the semi-finals and will meet Oostende, which plays in the second division. He's dying off the field, but for now he's rolling between the lines.

There is no time to mourn the impending transfer of Arthur Vermeeren.

Three minutes later in the Kroki Cup quarterfinals, Antwerp were already faced with the facts by the OHL. As if Moja was also dreaming of the Madrid sun, he childishly lost his first ball. Mazes took advantage of the opportunity and shot the ball past goalkeeper Signe Lamins.

First the Golden Boot celebration week, then Vermeeren week… Has it all been too much for The Great Old lately?

no. There are still certainties in Mark van Bommel's team: Vincent Janssen.

In his new role as playmaker/forward, he brilliantly fills the space between the defense and his opponent's midfield. Seven minutes later he was gifted a penalty kick and another seven minutes later he made the complete conversion with a flawless long shot: 1-2.

Antwerp then remained in control of the ball – despite some spasms from Leuven – and appeared to have completely silenced the home team after half-time. After a misunderstanding between goalkeeper Leysen and defender Bletinks, Zeno van den Bosch was allowed to open a new gift.

The Great Old looked like they were progressing freely into the semi-finals, but due to the home team's ferocious final attack, the accompanying goal from substitute Matthieu Mertens and the final red card from Janssen, there was still a bit of a quiver and shake in the ranks. Visitors at last.

And with the liberating final whistle, equipment man Vermeeren breathed a sigh of relief, as he was able to bid farewell to the club he raised in peace.

Read or view all comments:

Zeno van den Bosch: “It's been three years since I scored again, which is a very nice feeling. We conceded a quick goal, but we played well in the first half. Even after the end of the first half, we started sharply and I followed the corner well (laughs). Then we allowed them to get back into the game, but that was mainly to their advantage. They still make it difficult for us. Now we have to get the three points against Ostend, because we definitely shouldn't underestimate them.”

Mandela Keita: “It was not an easy match. Leuven had a good performance, but we were able to prove ourselves as a team. We really gave everything. And now Ostend, everyone has seen what they did in the previous round, so we absolutely love them.” To be underestimated.”

On Arthur Vermeeren's transfer: “I hope he stays,” Keita winks. “No, no. I sincerely wish him this move and I will definitely miss him. He really deserves to make this step after everything he has already proven at his young age.”

Stage after stage

End: 2-3

It was a bit of a tough battle for Antwerp in the end, but The Great Old qualified for the semi-finals of the Croky Cup against KV Oostende after a good match. Leuven can rely on its resilient attitude to prove itself again in the competition.

Mazez hits the last-hope free kick into the wall. About and finished For OHL?

Almost a penalty for Leuven

From hero to hero? Janssen rudely knocks a resident of Leuven onto the edge of the large rectangle. The Dutch striker – who has already scored twice – receives a red card and is awarded another free kick in a particularly dangerous position.

The OHL's latest attack still makes Antwerp tremble and tremble. After a number practiced on a corner kick, Shentian cuts the ball towards the goal. Signe Lamince stands firm.

Van Bommel entered the pitch in a state of noise and received a yellow card. This shows that they suddenly became nervous in Antwerp.

There's Matteo Mertens again. The substitute gained confidence and shot towards goal from the edge of the large rectangle, but this time his shot died in Lammence's arms. Antwerp breathes a sigh of relief.

OHL Goal: 2-3

Mateo Martins does what he was brought onto the field to do: score. The OH Leuven captain receives a cross that explodes and curls the ball perfectly – from a very acute angle – into the net. We have another competition.

This is only the second quarter-final in FC Leuven's history, but it doesn't look like a sequel will happen immediately.
