“This is a setback”: Frustrations at Club Brugge after wasting a 97th-minute win over Kortrijk “who only came to buy time” | Jupiler Professional League

Talk about embarrassment. Club Brugge They conceded no fewer than three goals to last-placed Kortrijk and had their progress halted. Bad rehearsal for Antwerp.

look. Della: “This is a setback.”

De Bosuil was already nodding – no one had any doubt after a 14-match unbeaten run whether KV Kortrijk would be ruled out by a wide margin. That was a bit disappointing for the club. Veekaa had made five moves before Tuesday evening. You should review…

What seemed like a boring and easy evening for Club Brugge KV for a long time turned into a minor disaster. In the first half the score was supposed to be 4-0, but in the end the club's progress stopped after it conceded three goals – and it relapsed into old illnesses. Peasant protest in Olympia. However, the evening started well. Berard was in the shooting gallery before halftime. Zinkernagel, Thiago, Skov Olsen, Nielsen, Vettelsen, Meijer – they all targeted him without success. “We attacked a lot,” surprised Zinkernagel at the end of the first half. He was the only one who injured Kortrijk's leg.

Ronnie Deila is a big fan of handball. Well, the club's first half was a lot like a handball match. However, unlike indoor sports, very few goals were scored. Not enough, as it turned out after 45 crazy minutes. Kortrijk suddenly trailed 1-2 between the 53rd and 68th minutes after goals from Afolabi and Bruno, a scenario that no one took into account at half-time.

“We should have killed the game,” said a frustrated Ronnie Deila. “It happened to us several times this season. He played very good football and created many chances, but did not decide the game. After those goals we started to stress too much. Because of the situation we put ourselves in. Defensively? We should have done what “Better. Because we knew they would be dangerous on the counterattack.”

It took a long time before the club regained its momentum, although it was in excellent form after the New Year. She was a little shaken by the unexpected circumstances. In the final quarter, it looked like the Blue-Black had gotten things back on track after all. First via Michel, on Saturday also in Charleroi precisely, then via Thiago. Invisible and poor for eighty-five minutes, but still good for his 18th goal in 12 games. “We found ourselves again. Through crosses and chances, we turned things around well with our personality,” said Deila.

It appears the hardest work is over, but the biggest blow to the club is yet to come. In the seventh of as many minutes of overtime, Sek scored 3-3 in the scrimmage. “Very disappointing. Especially the way through the centre. We should have thrown ourselves at that ball like the lions, but it didn't happen.” With all the consequences, the blue and black take a very painful score out of six against the number. The last of this season.

The question is how the club will react on Sunday to this incident on the course, the first in some time. During the winter training period, Deila believed his team could now withstand the blow. This will also be necessary in Bosuil, where the national title is already hanging by a thread if Union beats RWDM tonight – the difference then is 14 points. “We should have performed much better today,” the coach said. “But in any case, it was one of those evenings where Kortrijk took advantage of all his opportunities. This is a setback. We have to get over this quickly. Get over this and be ready for Sunday. Because after that the 'big game' awaits us.”

look. Vanakin: “It's frustrating to add 7 minutes to a team that's always behind the clock”

“Those are two lost points. We dominated the whole match and gave away goals like they were nothing,” grumbled a frustrated Hans Vanaken afterwards. “Kortrijk didn't create anything and just stalled for a while and got a point. And they succeeded in that too. The fact of adding another 7 minutes to a team that always wastes time is frustrating. It puts the football team at a disadvantage.”

Michelle: “This shouldn't happen.”

“In the first half we created a lot of chances and we should have been more than 1-0 ahead. Then they scored a surprise goal at 1-1… That caused us a bit of a scare, and we didn't know what to do for a while. Scorer Brandon Michel said: “We tried to get back into the game, but then suddenly we were 1-2 behind.” “After drawing 2-2 and then 3-2, you think you can finish the game calmly, but in the last minute we completely collapsed. The ball fell well for them and it was an 'out'. It may not happen. It's a shame really – especially at home, where you always think you can win this game. So you see, football can be very surprising. Are we not getting anything from this? Still a long time, isn't it? We just have to learn the lessons from this match and move on to the next one.”
