Royal Antwerp FC started the competition with seven consecutive victories. But what if you lose the first time?

If Antwerp beats Cercle Brugge this weekend, it will take the best competition start in The Great Old’s existence with eight out of eight. “You don’t keep winning every game, do you. They now play against Cercle Brugge, Seraing and KV Kortrijk. Then you quickly think that seven victories can also become ten,” Franky Van Der Elst tells Het Nieuwsblad.

“They have an expanded core and no longer have a European tax. But that is a knife that cuts both ways. Nainggolan and De Laet are not going to be content with half an hour here and there if things go less.”

At PSV, Van Bommel won nine times in a row, at Wolfsburg four. After that it all went wrong every time. According to Van Der Elst, this has to do with his personality. And they are also concerned about that at Antwerp.

“Given his past, that doesn’t seem illogical to me. Overmars will then have an important role to play in talking to him from person to person. But a lot also depends on the competition. Is it strong enough to put him in a position where he risks losing the pedals?”
