After that surprise on the opening matchday at Kortrijk, Nicky Hayen finally took his second victory as coach of Waasland-Beveren. Rarely have we awarded a trainer the victory as hard as the Limburger. Not that we are partial, but his hard work could be rewarded one day.
However, it looked bad for the Waaslanders for a whole first half. Had Fashion Sakala and Marko Kvasina -the attackers of Ostend- acted at any level, it was at least 0-2. Sakala wasted just about every opportunity and the one ball he did decide well on goal was expertly blocked by his striker brother. Hayen entered the tunnel with a dubious look.
That look had disappeared after a minute after half time. Albanese signed a rare good move on the left flank and released Frey. He put the leather back ready to cook and Albanian had to print. He was given a helping hand with his first goal by KVO goalkeeper Hubert. He should have done more with that ball.
Then you saw Waasland-Beveren grow and Ostend doubt. In the back it was still excellent with the Kustboys, but in the front the carelessness kept piling up. It actually became 2-0 via Sinani. The – quite selfish – Luxembourger went for his own success again, the ball was repelled, but Efford went wide again. 2-0 and closed.
The only one who could have provided an exciting ending was Gueye. The substitute got the ball from Bataille in the center of goal, but still managed to shoot over the Jackers cage. Gueye started the season strongly, but his form is hibernating. Waasland-Beveren could finally celebrate at the Freethiel in 2020. After all, a home victory was already from Boxing Day 2019.
