Matchday 501-09-2022 20:30

Exactly one week after the explosion of euphoria against Young Boys Bern, AA Gent has now saddled the Anderlecht fans with a huge hangover. Thanks to Hugo Cuypers, who converted a penalty neatly, it was 0-1 for the Gentenaren in the Lotto Park. Anderlecht remains behind with 9 out of 18, Gent jumps to 5th place with 11 points.

Anderlecht – AA Gent in a nutshell:

  • Key moment: Halfway through the second half, Refaelov misses a rare opportunity for Anderlecht, moments later the ball hits the spot for Ghent on the other side. Substitute Cuypers does not miss the opportunity and shoots the penalty high into the goal. The Purple & White does not recover from that blow.
  • Man of the match: Hugo Cuypers had to start on the bench at Ghent today, but was still able to turn out to be the match winner. The substitute was on the field for less than ten minutes when he gave Ghent the lead with a flawless penalty kick.
  • Remarkable: AA Gent has now been unbeaten for 13 away games in a row, thus improving the club record from the 1952-53 season. It has been since December last year that Ghent lost again outdoors, when it became 4-3 on the field of KV Mechelen.
  • Statistics: For Anderlecht, it has been since 11 November 2018 that they could win again against Ghent. Since then, Ghent has remained unbeaten for 10 JPL matches against the Purple & White (6 x draw, 4 x win).

Delcroix on the post, Depoitre hit rejected

The 300th match in the highest class for Anderlecht coach Felice Mazzu, the 200th match for Laurent Depoitre in the AA Gent shirt. So two jubilees, but it was by no means a festive first half. After a good intervention on a first jab from Hong, Van Crombrugge had to fight against sleep and Roef also barely had to take action.

Anderlecht could only really cause danger twice. In the fifteen minutes Delcroix deviated a corner against the post and after more than half an hour a cunning long shot by Murillo went just wide. Ghent also found no solutions when combined. Odjidja then tried it from afar, his low bang didn’t go too far.

Ten minutes before the break, Ghent seemed to make the difference. A lovely shot from Kums stranded on the crossbar, but Hjulsager offered Depoitre a second chance and the striker worked the ball through the crossbar into the goal. Hjulsager, however, was offside and so it remained 0-0 after the intervention of the VAR.

Cuypers counts out weak Anderlecht with a great penalty

The second half was in the same bed sick. Lots of sloppiness, little danger on target. After ten minutes Van Crombrugge had to be on the alert again on a deflected shot by Hjulsager. Anderlecht continued to look for opportunities in vain. After a rare good combination, Refaelov tried with a handsome marker, but he couldn’t frame the ball.

Instead of 1-0 it immediately became 0-1. After the intervention of the VAR, the ball hit the spot for a hooking error by Amuzu on Hong and Cuypers scorched the penalty high into the goal.

Gent kept the match under control without any problems. Anderlecht bit their teeth time and again on the faultless organization of the visitors. Gent jumps into the top five thanks to the three-pointer over Union. The Purple & White is left behind after its third league defeat with a meager 9 out of 18.
