Standard takes a deserved point from the fire against Club Brugge

Club Brugge is currently level with Charleroi in the lead of the Jupiler Pro League after a hard fought 1-1 against Standard. Diatta put blue-black in the lead, but the Rouches scored in the final phase after a questionable penalty.

Standard-Club Brugge was the first top match worthy of the name in the 2020-2021 season. Because Charleroi will only play on Sunday, the leader’s place was at stake. Both teams had shown an upward form before the international break. But when the match sheet became known an hour before kick-off, it became clear how Standard coach Philippe Montanier saw the value ratios. He adapted himself completely to the national champion in his own house. Bokadi took center stage in a five-man defense, in the front young Michel-Ange Balikwisha carried the attack of the Rouches. Obbi Oulare started on the bench against his ex-club.

Club dominated at the start of the match, but it was Standard who got the best chances. Not because the Rouches countered sharply, but because from time to time they got the ball played by the failing Club defense.

First, Simon Mignolet had to bring his fists to the rescue after a misunderstanding between Mechele and Mata. After that Mechele played in the feet of Lestienne, Balikwisha could not take advantage. Then it was Mignolet’s turn to lose the North. He played at the feet of Balikwisha, Deli came to the rescue of his goalkeeper on the goal line. And after Mignolet lost the ball again, albeit after a mistake by Lestienne, the defense had to come to the aid of its goalkeeper again.

While Club offered chance after chance to Standard, it occasionally came in front of goal from Arnaud Bodart. Especially along the right flank with Mata, Vormer and Dennis there were a few good combinations. That also resulted in a goal five minutes before half time. After a triangle between Dennis, Mata and Vormer, the latter reached deep to Dennis. Michael Krmencik cleverly passed his cross, Krépin Diatta shot the 0-1 past the hopeless Bodart.

Quick Debut Long

Club coach Philippe Clement Noa Lang awarded his blue-black debut at half time. The new number ten from Club made a name for itself with two shooting opportunities in five minutes. And for another five minutes he headed hard and well to the ground at the far post. Arnaud Bodart was forced to a great parade.

Club was in charge of midfield, with Ruud Vormer, Hans Vanaken and Mats Rits dominating against the young duo Samuel Bastien-Nicolas Raskin. But it was the rear players of the visitors who helped Standard to find opportunities again. Zinho Vanheusden entered the penalty area and went down after reaching out to Brandon Mechele. Both the ref and the VAR fell for the theater game of the brand new Red Devil. But Mignolet saved Lestienne’s penalty with a class save and the ex-Club player aimed high in the replay.

Still, Standard continued to receive gifts from Club. Clinton Mata let Balikwisha take the ball away, Obbi Oulare took it off and Lestienne scored for Standard. Sclessin ignited – for the last time with fans? – but was silenced again a minute later. Oulare was offside when he brought the ball in front of goal.

That was not the last plot twist in an eventful contest. At the start of injury time, the substitute Cop kicked a cross against the arms of Mats Rits. Ref Laforge put the ball on the spot again, Nicolas Gavory converted the penalty.

1-1 was a logical result for a match in which Club was the offensive boss but defensively was not precise enough to claim the victory. With the Champions League match at Zenit St. Petersburg on Tuesday, Clement knows what to hammer on with his team.
