Ghent has not lost ten games in a row to Anderlecht, that’s a record. The Buffalos made it difficult for the Purple & White again with a good man cover. The defense in particular was rock solid.

And Vanhaezebrouck pulled out one man: Jordan Torunarigha. Hein strikes and Hein anoints. Two weeks ago he stabbed him in the ground after the match in Ostend, but now he put him on a pedestal. “Our defense was very solid and then it is difficult to score against us,” said Vanhaezebrouck. “Kums? Yes, he was good, but the ‘Man of the Match’ for me was Torunarigha. He played a super game. Both defensively and constructively!”

He was obviously not completely satisfied with the game itself. “Winning at Anderlecht is not a hallelujah moment for me. Just like losing against Antwerp is no drama. We have to set up a series. It was such a typical Anderlecht-Ghent match. There were few opportunities and we were evenly matched. That we haven’t lost to Anderlecht for so long? That’s exceptional, but Anderlecht could have won several matches.”
