KAA Gent can gradually smell European football after New Year. There was also a win on a visit to Breidablik in Iceland. With 2-3, although it could or should have been smoother. Hein Vanhaezebrouck also said this.
After taking an early lead through Gift Orban, Ghent fell behind 2-1 in Iceland. Only after halftime were the Buffaloes able to get on with it. And at the end there were even a few shivers that Breidablik would not get a 3-3 draw.
“The three points are important, we made it more difficult for ourselves than necessary. But we knew we weren’t going to overdo it,” said Hein Vanhaezebrouck at VTM in response after the victory against the Icelanders.
Goals conceded individual errors
“The goals conceded are individual mistakes, there is little you can do about that. You can prepare as a team, but there is nothing you can do about individual mistakes. That can happen in football, but it puts you behind in difficult circumstances.”
“The substitutes added something and we could still go about it. Gift Orban? It is certainly his merit, but without Gerkens or Tissoudali he will not score three of course. I am glad he was good, he worked very hard “That’s the most important thing for me.”
