Mechelen won in Ostend at the start of the thirteenth day of the championship. The band at Wouter Vrancken confirmed his excellent form by winning 2-4 on the coast. Mrabti (2x), Cuypers and Hairemans have scored on the Malinois side. This brings the series of the club from the province of Antwerp to 16 out of 18. After a hesitant start to the season, they are provisionally second in the Pro League standings. The evening had started badly. Hundreds of Malinois supporters found themselves stuck in traffic to reach the Coast. Reason why the Pro League had decided to postpone the kick-off for fifteen minutes. Gautier Ganaye, the CEO of KV Ostend, was unhappy: “It wouldn’t happen in the Premier League. The Pro League could still have foreseen the influx of people to Ostend on the eve of the holidays, right?” he had reacted in prelude to the match at the microphone of Eleven Sports.
