Standard is making little effort to get Mouscron out of the cup | Croque Cup 2021/2022

After 2 of 15 in competition and a coach change, Standard had to show something. The cup match against Mouscron was an excellent opportunity to give coach Luca Elsner his first victory.

With 6 new names in the base, Standard is also starting sharp. Tapsoba, who would have been a disaster for Mouscron for an hour, lost in the penalty area after 5 minutes. Joao Klaus kicked a little convincingly, but goalkeeper Gillikens was dumbfounded: 0-1.

Standard’s promising start did not materialize. The people of Liege were master and master, but there were no great opportunities. The best attempt to double the score so far has been the place ball from Tapsoba.

Even after the break, Standard held Mouscron hostage in their penalty area, but forgot to ask for a goal as ransom. A bike kick from Klaus and a long shot from Simero were not enough to force the second goal.

Mouscron became dangerous with two heads from Anggioli, but he was not able to adequately prepare. Even if Standard starts messing around in the last minutes, 1B’s team won’t be able to benefit. For example, the losing finalist last year in savings mode advances to the next round.

Coach Luka Elsner was of course satisfied with his first win in the Standard, but he wasn’t oblivious to the running points. “We had some chances and we should have scored more.”

“In the second half, Mouscron got into the rhythm a bit more and they had some dangerous balls. You shouldn’t underestimate them despite their position in 1B. Last year they were still playing in 1A. But look, one goal was enough.”
