We did not think to write it a few weeks ago between the chaotic start to the season of the Rouches and the irregularity of the Zèbres but with the good series of Standard despite the last defeat against Seraing and the missteps of the other competitors, the Liégeois and the Carolos will fight to get closer to the top 4. Beyond the sporting challenge, Sporting must win this Walloon shock if only for these fans.
“Even before going to Anderlecht, we were already talking about this match”, explains Edward Still. “We feel the popular fervor. We understand the importance of the game even internally. It’s important to use it to our advantage.”
A tactic with or without the ball?
Sportingly, the technician can count on his entire core except for long-term injuries like Knezevic and Van Cleemput. Usually players, the Hénuiers left Lotto Park with the victory having built this success on defensive rigor. Seraing also beat Standard with a binding low block. Will this data push Edward Still to change his initial game plan?
“At Seraing and Zulte, we had less of the ball and we won those games, but we also left with the three points by controlling possession like against Ghent, before the Buffalos were reduced to ten. Now we have to decide. We have analyzed the strengths and weaknesses of Standard.”
Finding them and defeating them would allow you to revive yourself permanently.
