“If there is any team that deserves to win, it is us.” Dixit, Ronnie Dela and Brian Rimmer. The Club Brugge coach cited the poor condition of the stadium and the rapid succession of matches as excusing circumstances, and the Anderlecht coach mainly the burden of injury and too many players not yet fully available.

We start with Deila, who was unhappy with his club’s poor first half. “We were very negative,” the Norwegian said on DAZN. “The plan was to put a lot of pressure, but it was Anderlecht who kept us away. But there were no chances and their goal came out of nowhere. After the break I saw a different energy with us. Even though we also played on Thursday, Anderlecht were tired in the final stage. We were Closer to winning than he is.”
“But to get a point at Anderlecht and not miss almost any chance: that’s not bad. I missed our attacking animation. The field undoubtedly played a part in that. The good ‘flow’ in our passing was missing. I’m not sure I’m going to play with it,” said Deila, who was also pleased with his versatility. Tactical: “You just have to do it based on character and we showed that spirit.”
“In addition to Plan A, we also have Plan B and C, with Vanakken who can switch and the full-backs as wingers on the flanks. With the rapid succession of matches (a catch-up match in Genk will follow on Thursday, ed.) it is not easy to juggle everything. Real tactical training is difficult .
Along with ineligible players, injuries have changed the dynamics of our football.
A very different speech from Brian Rimmer from last week, when he severely insulted his team after a fortunate draw in Kortrijk. “I thought the first half was very good. One of the best we’ve shown really. But there were three key moments that defined the game: Dolberg and Delaney who were injured, Hazard who missed the chance to make it 2-0 and the individual foul at 1-1. That last one should be removed.” “Especially as quickly as possible. And not just in Sardella. Because we hurt ourselves a lot with that.”
“But, along with players unable to play, injuries have changed the dynamics of our football. Hazard couldn’t play 90 minutes anyway, and that had nothing to do with the offside toe. Augustinson and Amuzu were also not players who could deal with “The whole match… I don’t know how the former did it. In the end, Lady Luck didn’t choose our side. Because the match was balanced, but I think we deserved it a little more.”
