Felice Mazzu’s troops lined up a sixth straight victory. In the standings, the Union, promoted to the elite of Belgian football 48 years after having left it, is already assured of the honorary title of autumn champion. Two days from the halfway point, the people of Brussels are first with 34 points and have seven more units than Antwerp and Club Brugge, beaten this weekend. Ostend is 13th with 17 points.
Mass was already said at half-time when the 22 players returned to the locker room with a score of 1-4. In fox surfaces, Deniz Undav quickly opened the scoring, taking advantage of a succession of approximations of the local defense (0-1, 6th). The German striker then doubled the bet by punctuating a magnificent unionist movement (0-2, 16th).
The KVO nevertheless reacted by reducing the gap via Thierry Ambrose after a poor recovery from Ismael Kandouss (1-2, 23rd). As Alexander Blessin’s side looked to enter the game, RUSG resumed their march forward. A quick counter, poorly cleared by the Ostend rearguard, was concluded with a close range shot from Casper Nielsen (1-3, 31st). Guillaume Hubert turned around for the fourth time when Christian Burgess took over a cross from Undav, author of a new solo number (1-4, 45th + 3).
Despite three changes made by Blessin on the restart, the face of the match has not changed, on the contrary. On a new against lethal, the neo-Red Devil Dante Vanzeir, shifted by his captain Teddy Teuma, found Undav, alone at the second post (1-5, 60th) to score his 13th goal of the season in the league. The Union added two more goals. Burgess scored his second of the evening with a header from a corner (1-6, 70th) before Vanzeir lobbed Hubert (1-7, 80th).
The last match of this 15th day will see the Beerschot, red lantern, receive Genk (9 p.m.).
