KV Mechelen wins 1-4 against a mediocre KV Kortrijk and moves up a bit in the ranking | Jupiler Pro League

Jupiler Pro LeagueKV Mechelen has taken an important three-pointer on the field of KV Kortrijk. Malinwa never got into trouble. Kortrijk was unable to pull the longest straw in the Guldenspoor Stadium once.

KV Kortrijk and KV Mechelen both urgently needed points. With a 7 out of 21 they camped in the gray middle bracket. Home coach Adnan Custovic immediately granted newcomer Loncar a starting place and KV Mechelen coach Danny Buijs also gave confidence to a new face. Birger Verstraete had to provide more stability in midfield. For Verstraete it was a return to the old nest. He played a total of 42 games for the Veekaa.

Malinwa shot the best from the starting blocks and could threaten sporadically. Schoofs laid wide until Hairemans, but he went just wide. After that pinprick, Kortrijk came into the game better and better. Woelwater Lamkel Zé came in just before half an hour and lashed out. The Cameroonian seemed to make his first goal in Kortrijk’s wages, but his shot went just wide of Coucke’s cage. Just when Kortrijk seemed to have the match in their hands, Mechelen took the lead. Ilic intervened well on a placed shot by Storm, but Walsh followed well and kicked the opening goal against the nets. A few minutes later it was already 0-2. Schoofs scored after a drawn out one-two with Ngoy. The home entrance was savage.

Kortrijk started the second half in good spirits, but Danny Buijs’s troops were alert and took advantage of a slipper from Vandendriessche and quickly led 0-3. Schoofs tapped the leather back to Hairemans with a clever heel, and he did not hesitate. Kortrijk a penalty after a handball by Vanlerberghe. Mechelen has already conceded five penalties this season. Lamkel Zé converted the eleven meter flawlessly. The first home goal in four matches for Kortrijk… In the absolute final phase, Schoofs shot the 1-4 against the ropes.

KVK has not yet been able to win at home this season. The home reputation is not what it used to be. The West Flemings urgently need to recover, but the program looks tough. Lamkel Zé and co will go to Anderlecht next week and a week later the proud leader Antwerp will visit the Guldenspoor Stadium. Mechelen receives OH Leuven.
