Jupiler Pro LeagueHat trick. Signed, Paul Onwacho. He folded on his own, Syring. With nine strokes after nine days of matches, he’s better than last season. Where should this ending for a KRC Genk attacker end?
Do you have any superlatives to display? We’ve all used it incrementally when it comes to Paul Onuachu. Racing Genk didn’t even spin against Seraing, but you don’t have to do that if you have a phenomenon up front. Paul Onwacho scored two goals in two minutes at the end of the first half. After the rest he was adding another. They say that the Nigerian missed a penalty after half an hour. Well, the penalty says a lot. Jonathan Lardotte did his best to make a mess of it. Ibrahima Cisse saved the ball from Eto’o’s feet, but Lardot made the point. In Tubize, they just set out for “Vive le vélo” as Alaphilippe raced once again for the world title. Onwacho refused to accept the gift and went away. After 11 metres, he missed the first penalty kick for Genk. Lardot continued to mess around when he condoned a draw foul by Poaty on the breaker through Ito and immediately gave Heynen a yellow card. Cegeka Arena started to whistle, You can’t touch the captain.
Fortunately, Onuachu still creates a festive mood at halftime. On a pass from Eto’o, he scored 1-0, although Mansoni almost got the ball off Onuachu’s feet on the goal line. Two minutes later, it caught fire at two in the evening. Deitch saved his first try, but had no recourse against the recoil. Clean corner. Objective of the “Lange Poll” category. No Two Without Three And soon after the break, Onwacho scored a hat-trick. Boate tapped Paintsil to the ankles and Lardot put the ball on the spot. Straight ahead, Onwacho scored his ninth league goal in eight games. By comparison: at the moment last year, he was “only” scoring seven goals. So it’s tougher than last season, guys.
After just fifteen minutes, Racing Genk took the lead once. Josef Paintzel, who was given a starting place for the first time this season by John van den Brum, completed the solo act quite impressively. Unfortunately for the Ghanaian, he was offside when he started his career. Van den Broom once again moved against Syring with a few pawns. Cuesta was slightly injured and took a break, like Karel Eating wasn’t even a pick. Mackenzie and Toma were their replacements, which is no loss in quality. But it wasn’t really good for the Limburgers against Syring. Thorstvedt often sought depth, but long balls rarely reached him. Not that condom men can really make a fist, they just lack the pure quality of that.
Racing Genk finished the match with a reassuring lead on the board. Thorstvedt left the field with a sore ankle after an unfortunate contact. Just wait until Thursday, in the Europa League against Dinamo Zagreb. The Norwegian prefers not to miss van den Broom in a fight with the Croats. But hey, isn’t there still an Onuachu?!
Van den Brom: “For a moment dread of a bad evening”
John van den Brum would not have worried too much in anticipation of his duel with FC Seraing. Metallo can’t stand the big clubs. When Paintsil’s goal was disallowed and Onuachu missed the penalty, I thought ‘This isn’t going to be one of those nights…’ in the end it turned out to be a beautiful evening, thanks mainly to Onuachu and Ito. I had to make three substitutions compared to Wednesday. The first was Cuesta, who was injured in training and was athletic enough to admit he wasn’t quite fit to play today. The second was Toma and I think he did a good job with Heynen. And with Paintsil, we picked an attacking player to make up for Bongonda’s absence.”
“From start to finish we kept control of the game, played really well in possession, this time in depth, because I thought we had been doing it less lately. We created a lot of chances and hardly gave anything or nothing. That reassured until the day Thursday “.
Seraing coach Jordi Condom admitted that Racing Genk is a few sizes larger than the Seraing. “We tried to resist, but we didn’t succeed until the end of the first half. After 3-0, we had no choice but to do our best not to let the score go up. The fact that the opponent slowed down in anticipation of their European match helped us with that.”
“The only positive thing is that despite 0 out of 9, Beerschot doesn’t get any closer,” added team principal Peter Kerrimans.
