Standard has found the right fire again under trainer Ronny Deila. Club Brugge never got a grip on the game against Sclessin. After the European stunt against Porto, Club loses for the first time after five wins in a row in the competition. Standard takes 12 out of 12 in the competition. The big star at Standard was Philip Zinckernagel, who was in the starting line-up for the first time.

Standard – Club Brugge in a nutshell:

  • Key moment: Just after the hour, Zinckernagel completely crushes Bruges’ hopes, if they were still there. Club Brugge no longer recovers from that second uppercut.
  • Man of the match: It was a pleasant acquaintance between Sclessin and Philip Zinckernagel. The Dane thanked for his first base place with two beautiful goals. Sclessin has found his new scrunchie.
  • Remarkable: Club Brugge could not win again at Standard. It has been January 2017 since blue-black once again triumphed over Sclessin.

Zinckernagel makes Sclessin swirl

Swirl like in the old days. Sclessin did that again tonight. The supporters lit the fuse with several great tifo’s before the match.

If the Rouches weren’t ready already, then after those fierce encouragements. It inspired Ronny Deila’s troops. Balikwisha was able to score first, but was offside. Then it went better for Zinckernagel.

The Olympiakos mercenary scored from outside the box with the left and scored wonderfully. Mignolet grumbled at his defense.

No, it was not the evening of Club Brugge. Too many strongholds disappointed. Unlike Club, Standard did pick up the towel. Fierce in the duels and just much more eager.

Club must empty chalice to the bottom

Suddenly an apple almost fell out of the closet for Club. Nielsen kicked on Dussenne’s elbow in the box. Ref Vergoote first pointed to the dot, but after viewing the images, blue-black (rightly) did not receive a penalty.

After a few headers, the goal fell on the other side. Zinckernagel – he again – tricked Mechele into placing the leather perfectly in the side net.

Club Brugge was against the canvas. Especially when Balikwisha made it 3-0 at the end of the match. In all his euphoria he took off his sweater. Without realizing that he already had a yellow card to his name. A childhood sin.

Standard books an important three-pointer. It is now one point from fourth place. Club Brugge have to lick the wounds after a 15 out of 15. Leader Antwerp already has eight points more than blue-black.

Deila: “I will remember this for the rest of my life”

  • Simon Mignolet (Club Brugge): “I think Standard was fiercer in the duels. Then you fall behind and you make it difficult for yourself. It is a difficult move anyway, but then you run after the facts. Standard was the deserved winner today. There is now the international break so we have plenty of time to analyze this. I think we should definitely learn from this match. You know in advance that it would be a special night here. Then you let yourself be caught and that is not allowed. It was not good enough today. We didn’t have the chances to score goals.”
  • Gilles Dewaele (Standard): “If you see how the supporters created the atmosphere, you have to start motivated. I think we won every second ball today. That way we could increase the pressure. I think Club Brugge didn’t get a great chance today. “A tifo from the fans, that brings energy and gives us a lot of courage. The supporters were really behind us today. That was already the case in previous games.”
  • Carl Hoefkens (Club Brugge): “This is a big disappointment. After the previous games with a lot of wins, this is just not enough. I was satisfied with the first 15 to 20 minutes. We also agreed to push them back through possession. Then we get a goal against and we are not sharp enough. From then on it is very difficult. There were too few dirty meters and too little draft without a ball. They could easily close the holes. We didn’t find the openings. That’s just a shame today.”
  • Ronny Deila (Standard): “It’s a day I will remember for the rest of my life. These are special moments. I’ve been to Celtic before, but this is the same and maybe better. What the people here give to the team is incredible. I am very proud of the players and the team. Winning is always good, but the most important thing is that you give everything. We are nothing without the players. They are everything. We have so much talent in this group. Today they showed what level they are Club Brugge is the strongest team I’ve seen in a long time. That also says something about our players.”
