Charleroi played well in the standings with a 1-3 victory over Syring. Nicholson, Golizade and Morioka quickly put the Wallon match into a crucial fold. The home team’s fans showed their smaller team in the second half and stopped the match for ten minutes.
Syring – Charleroi in a nutshell:
- key moment: Syring comes out of the locker room a bit sharper after a poor first half, but quickly covers the nose. Morioka decides the match with a great individual goal.
- man of the match: Ali Golizadeh was out of reach for Syring’s defence, especially in the first half. He made 0-1 and scored 0-2 by himself, paving the way for a smooth victory.
- Special: Charleroi is also the only Jupiler Pro League to be undefeated after six away matches. It takes 12 points on the go and now Eupen is the only one who does a better job.
Nicholson and Golizadeh did it again for Charleroi
Seraing and Charleroi jump right into the atmospheric Pairy Stadium. Bernier attempted to score a penalty early in the match, but was shown a yellow card for Schwalbe.
After a few minutes the target fell on the other side. Golizadeh sent a split pass straight across Syring’s backline, Nicholson made it superb: 0-1 for Charleroi.
From that moment on, the visitors were in charge. Charleroi smoothly and patiently united in search of a second target. It almost came to the name Ilaimaharitra, but his shot was a zigzag a centimeter wide. Don’t worry, because right after that, Golizadeh made it 0-2 with a pass from Kaembe.
Seraing just couldn’t get a full job on the carpet. I was left with a few singles actions by Poiti and Bernier, which posed little danger. In the end, the hosts might be happy with a 0-2 score in the first half, because Zorgan forgot to finish off a superb attack from Charleroi in a proper manner.
Morioka decides the match and the fans misbehave
After the break, Syring showed a different face for a while. He was going to put more pressure on Charleroi and soon this led to an opportunity for Sambo, who decided to end the match.
However, the host team’s flare-up was eliminated when Morioka decided to start his evening career. Syring’s defense broke through without facing much opposition and slotted 0-3 with accuracy next to Deitch in goal.
The match was played, to the frustration of some home fans, who threw beer cups at Charleroi’s bench and the fourth official. The first warning from the stadium announcer was ignored, and the second time the referee Wesley de Kremer got fed up: he stopped the match and sent everyone inside.
After a ten-minute lull, Charleroi went looking for a fourth goal, but it was Syring who saved the honor. Mouandilmadji’s shot was converted into his own net by defender Knezevic: 1-3, the final score immediately.
