After the first half in Kehrweg, Club Brugge supporters wondered on social media if they were watching the rematch against Racing Genk last week. Club Brugge squandered chance after chance in Leoben. And unlike Genk’s match, that lasted not 45 minutes on Sunday afternoon, but 70 minutes.
Eupen delivered a four-star performance in commitment and plenty of action. He could only be better by using his chances more efficiently.
Less than 60 seconds passed when Nsoki inexplicably failed to see Magnée in his back. Mignolet had no chance of shooting a header from close range.
Club Brugge seemed to recover quickly at first thanks to a blunder from goalkeeper Noureddine, who went massively under the ball at a corner kick. Jutgla directed vigilance, but that was no sign of a turn.
Time and time again Eupen found space in the back of Bruges’ defense. Deum, Nohu, Peters and Privlejak could all take their chance in the penalty area. Mignolet was angry at what was happening in front of him, but that didn’t leave any effect either. The result was that Privlejak was able to score 2-1 with a kind of gamble.
Against Jenk, the break led to a turnaround. Against Eupen, nothing can be done. Not the break, Eupen was the only team that kept charging chances. Not a red card for Magnée. The club lacked everything: creativity, passion, swordsmanship and accuracy. Substitutes Mbamba, Sowa, and Larren will not score either.
