Zulte Waregem step closer to relegation
Antwerp strengthens its third place in the ranking in the Belgian first class with 63 points, in the wake of leader Racing Genk (68) and first pursuer Union Sint-Gillis (65). Essevee is now even more emphatically in the danger zone, in seventeenth and penultimate place, with 24 points. Only three more days will follow. Zulte Waregem has to make up three points on Eupen, which is still playing this weekend.
Alderweireld headed against the ropes in the 16th minute, but the VAR blocked the opening goal. In the end of the game, however, the experienced hand was effectively paid for working with two hits. Calvin Stengs’ free kick reached the central defender’s head in the 86th minute, giving the Great Old a free pass to victory. Three minutes later, in the 89th minute, the captain also took his responsibility when the base number 1 was awarded a penalty. He did not fail and so definitively won the race.
