Frey and Gerkens pull Antwerp over the line against Seraing in the final quarter | Jupiler Pro League 2021/2022

It was not without effort that Antwerp kept the 3 points on the Bosuil against Seraing on Sunday. Frey and Gerkens were only able to erase the 0-1 of Mikautadze in the final quarter.

Dietsch keeps Nainggolan and Miyoshi from the 1-0

Antwerp did not seem completely recovered from the painful defeat in the Europa League at Olympiakos. Seraing had clearly digested his own downer, loss in the derby against Standard, and started the match best. Butez had to be on the alert on a long shot from Kilota.

Only after almost 20 minutes did Antwerp beep for the first time. Nainggolan made a strong effort from outside the box, Dietsch has to flatten to keep the ball out of his goal. Seraing was briefly pinned down, Boulenger almost made a pass from Miyoshi into his own goal.

Antwerp could not keep up the pressure in a match that went on without much danger of goal. Only with the break in sight did Seraing shiver again. A cross from Nainggolan deviated slightly from Boulenger and so the detached Miyoshi can score from close range. Dietsch prevented the 1-0 with a brilliant reflex.

Frey scores and lets score

Shortly after the break, Antwerp again came close to the opening goal. Nainggolan brought Frey into position with a smart pass, but he showed that top scorers can also miss. After a lesser touch of the ball, Frey decided to go wide. A few minutes later, Miyoshi was allowed to try on a pass from De Laet, but his volley was just blocked.

Just when Antwerp had the match in their hands, Seraing struck ice cold in the switch. Mikautadze was sent deep by Jallow and nicely scored the opening goal over Butez in goal.

Priske intervened and pulled Nainggolan and Fischer to the side in front of Benson and Gerkens. That duo brought a new dimension to the Antwerp game. Yet Antwerp was only able to come alongside fifteen minutes before the end, thanks to carelessness at Seraing. Frey was allowed to head unhindered on a long throw-in from De Laet and Dietsch was also surprised: 1-1.

Seraing kept trying on the counter. Almeida pulled the emergency brake when Marius was suddenly able to break through and was happy that it stayed with yellow. In the final phase Frey again made the difference for Antwerp. He made his way for the Seraing defense on strength and character and painted the winning goal on Gerkens’ head.
