Robbe Decostere and Cercle were on their way to a 0-2 victory awat to the league leaders for a long time, but 3 goals in the second half resulted in a sour defeat. “Union immediately put a lot of pressure on, but luckily goalkeeper Thomas Didillon was able to keep us in the match with some excellent saves. Otherwise we were super efficient and went into the break with a 0-2 lead.”
Robbe Decostere: "Very bitter to lose in this way"
As they had earlier this season, the home team came from behind on Saturday evening: “We knew, of course, that Union were going to come for a result in the second half. I think we conceded the first goal a little too early. The home crowd then went even more behind their team and then, after a battle in front of goal, the equalizer was also scored," said Decostere. “That third goal? Well, we conceded it in an unfortunate way. It was very bitter for us to lose 3-2 here, we were keen to show our good form against the league leader."
