Antwerp 2 - 2 seine

3258 spectators had come to WIJNEGEM ARENA this cloudy day. Gabriel Nicolás Trindade was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Hugo Grunewald and Jere Heikkilä. Antwerp had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. The following players took the field: Herrewyn - Dethier, Beltrán, Rafalak - Butaye, Colizzi, De Middeleir, Polet, Vercruysse - Vermeersch, Szromek.

A 3-5-2 alignment was the formation of choice for seine. The following players had been chosen: Zvegintsev - Poyatos, zur Verth, Perdigón - Strecha, Zūlis, Moltzahn, Baghban Shaker, Müngersdorf - Sharia, Klitschko.

Antwerp saw most attack opportunities on the wings, taking advantage of their outstanding level with that tactic. seine demonstrated their disastrous creative tactics on the field. Adam Strecha's early cross saw the defenders caught out of position and the alert Theodolf Klitschko was able to pounce and roll the ball past the hapless goalkeeper to score for seine. 0 - 1. Some fine passing in the middle of the pitch, carving open the away defence, should have led to a goal for Antwerp, but Zdzisław Rafalak's shot went over the bar. Antwerp's Jerzy Szromek made an attempt at equalising 37 minutes into the match, coming in from the right, but the ball hit the post and the defence easily cleared the rebound. Jerzy Szromek could have scored for Antwerp with his free kick after 39 minutes, but the visitors' keeper just managed to get a hand on it. After 40 minutes of play, Enrik Vercruysse equalised for Antwerp after an elegant attack from the right. 1 - 1 was the score after the first half. Antwerp had most of the ball, with 60 percent of possession.

As the 50 minute mark approached, the Antwerp coach decided it was time for a substitution. Kris De Middeleir reluctantly made way for Jorden Grenson on the pitch. Danny Polet received some harsh words from his coach after he acted foolishly 63 minutes into the match, probably out of lack of experience, and almost let an opponent score. Antwerp had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to focus on wing attacks instead. After 66 minutes of play, Zdzisław Rafalak gave the home team a 2 - 1 lead after an attack coming in from the right. After 68 minutes, seine's Theodolf Klitschko fell awkwardly, but was determined to stay in the match. That's the spirit! Zdzisław Rafalak unleashed a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. The visitors didn't give in and, after 72 minutes, Dustin-Alexander Moltzahn got through the home side's central line of defence, rolling in the equaliser to make it 2 - 2. Antwerp claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 52 percent.

Antwerp's best player was Otto Beltrán. However, Tiemen Dethier made a disastrous appearance. The most dominating seine player was without a doubt Amiran Sharia. Theodolf Klitschko was a disappointment, however. The match ends 2 - 2.
