The play-offs in the Jupiler Pro League are approaching the denouement. Jacky Mathijssen clearly enjoyed last weekend.
Jacky Mathijssen clearly enjoyed the match between KRC Genk and Union SG. “Struggle and suspense until the last seconds. Hats off to Genk and Union. This was advertising for our competition,” he told Het Belang van Limburg.
This seems like a missed opportunity, especially for Union SG, especially after Club Brugge had previously beaten Royal Antwerp FC. Nevertheless, Mathijssen drew a very striking conclusion about Karel Geraerts’ team after the game.
“Union must be pretty sure that they can beat Antwerp at the Bosuil, because they were just a little more satisfied with a division of points than Genk. The visitors had to do without Teuma, who dropped out in the warm-up. A serious loss, because he is the engine of the team.”
Genk was disappointed because the title now seems almost impossible. Win at Bruges and hope that The Great Old is not yet champion after next weekend. “As long as you are not mathematically disabled, you are obliged to face it in the same way. That won’t be a problem either. It would only be bad if you now fail to go full for the win in Jan Breydel.”
