Seraing goes into halftime with a flattered lead
Against a young Seraing team, it was the visitors who immediately took matters into their own hands. Still, it was the home team that created the first danger, but a low slide from Lahssaini was simply picked up by Steppe.
Although STVV completely monopolized the ball, we had to wait until the end of the opening quarter for a first real chance. After a nice steal, Koita took his chance from outside the box, but the Belgian’s shot went over Galje’s crossbar.
Seraing could not fight in the game and was pressed against his own sixteen. Balongo tried with a long shot, but the Congolese’s effort fell wide of the post.
So no opening goal for the visitors and as so often the goal falls on the other side. After a lightning-fast counter, Mouandilmadji suddenly appeared alone in front of Steppe. The Chadian attacker did not hesitate and pushed in the 1-0 against the flow of the game.
Extensions dominate STVV the tie
Even after the break, STVV handed out the sheets and that almost immediately translated into the equalizer. After a delicious heel from De Ridder, Matsubara was there like the chickens to push the 1-1 against the nets.
The home team had completely lost the North and 4 minutes later they conceded a second goal. After a nice pass from De Ridder, Koita sent goalkeeper Galje to the baker to deposit the 1-2 in an empty goal.
STVV pushed on, but both Hayashi and Hashioka failed to give Seraing the final blow. A lifeline that the home team took with two hands 10 minutes before the end. Substitute Maziz was left alone in the box and headed the 2-2 past Steppe. We got an extra half hour of football.
With the start of extra time, the fatigue crept into the legs of the players. Yet it was again Maziz who suddenly gave the home team the lead just before the end of the 1st overtime. The Frenchman took a nice pass from Mikautadze and sent Seraing to the next round.
