Thibo Somers was once again a scourge of the Eupen defense, playing a complete match and in the end the Cercle youth product was also able to break the deadlock, giving Cercle the lead fifteen minutes from time “It was a very difficult game for us, especially the first half. The game was closely fought for a long time and we didn't create many chances. Eupen played with a very low block and only attacked with long balls. In the second half we came out of the dressing room physically stronger and luckily we can take three points back to Bruges. We do hope that the supporters will be able to return to the stadium soon, because we do miss them.”
Senna Miangue had a hand in Thibo Somers' opening goal against Eupen with a long throw-in, but the Belgian also realizes that Cercle did not play its best game: “It was not a strong match for us, but in the end we also have to learn to win matches without style. Today was the perfect example: not our best display, but the most important thing is that we won.”
“In my opinion, it was my team's worst game since I've been here. I am therefore not satisfied with the performance in itself, but of course I am happy with the victory”, said coach Thalhammer honestly after the team's win away to KAS Eupen (0-2).
Coach Dominik Thalhammer was clear in the press conference: “If we score to make it 0-3 immediately after the break, we would win the match”, the Groen-Zwart coach started off. “We didn't and after that we made too many mistakes. With Utkus and Van Der Bruggen we also lost two players through injury in the match, so we had to make many changes in the team and that did not benefit our performance.”
