A goal whose importance cannot be underestimated. Hans Vanaken dissipated the atmosphere of crisis in Club Brugge and pushed it towards Antwerp. Captain Jan Breidel exploded with a late winner. Before that, the derby had been a major disappointment and the tie looked set to be drawn, with substitute George canceling out a world-class goal scored by Jutgla. When will Mark van Bommel return to life in the great era?
Club Brugge – Antwerp in brief:
- Key moment: As happened in the first half, Club Brugge fired mercilessly in the second half. After a nice chest check for Nosa’s cross, Thiago puts the ball ready for Vanakken and gives the home team the full spoils at the last minute.
- Man of the match: Hans Vanaken has once again proven his worth for Club Brugge. The loyal leader made the difference with the winning goal in the final stage, thus removing the atmosphere of crisis from the Jan Breidel Stadium with one stroke.
- distinct: The best goal of this big match was undoubtedly Ferran Gutgla’s opener. The Catalan applied for Goal of the Year with an impressive technical feat. So his replacement in the watch was surprising. Not least among the club’s fans, who expressed their dissatisfaction by blowing whistles.
Jutgla provides a rare moment of beauty
There was a lot of pressure on both teams in this big match and it had a paralyzing effect. The fear of losing seemed greater than the will to win, which led to a hellish first half.
Just half an hour later, Gutgla put the first ball between the posts, and Jan Botez had little difficulty dealing with it. Antwerp did not advance further than an innocuous long shot from Eckelenkamp that was deflected off Balikwesha.
The ugliness was made up for at the end of the first half with a wonderfully brilliant goal scored by Ferran Gutgla after a long throw-in from Buchanan. With his back to goal and surrounded by Antwerp players, the Catalan held the ball three times and then scored with the outside of his foot. What a goal.
Vanaken leaves Antwerp defeated
As weak as the first half started, the second half started quickly. Botez had to react immediately to Zinkernagel’s shot, while Moja tested Mignolet. An hour later, Patai was able to score after a pass from Eckelenkamp, but the equalizer was disallowed for offside.
The equalizing goal came twenty minutes before the end. Corbani outmaneuvered Meier in defense and just 27 seconds after he came on, George Ilyinichina scored. Suddenly it was all possible to do it again at the Jan Breidel Stadium.
Antwerp did not accept the points split. From a well-taken corner kick from Palicuesha, Alderweireld Mignolet made a brilliant save. Club Brugge survived and were beaten mercilessly deep into the final stage. Thiago set the ball ready for Hans Vanaken and sent the club’s fans into ecstasy with a powerful strike.
Vanaken restored Club Brugge’s lead in the 90th minute.
Jutgla: “I did it based on intuition”
Ferran Gutgla scored a stunning goal shortly before half-time. “When I had the ball, I wanted to shoot the ball directly, but the defenders made it difficult for me. I looked for space and did it based on instinct.”
“A goal like this naturally gives me confidence. I worked hard for a month after my injury. This motivates me to continue working in the same way. The coach gave me a lot of confidence from the beginning. Even when I was injured, he talked to me a lot. He knows what I can do and believes in me. “I’m grateful for that.”
Completing the full match is not yet possible for the Spanish striker. “I’ve been out for seven months and I’m starting to feel good now. But I still need time. How I feel in training, along with the coach’s decision, will determine how long I can play. I can definitely play with Thiago. The coach knows that too “
