CONSOLATION GOAL CAME TOO LATE

BEERSCHOT - RSCA FUTURES   1 - 2

The contrast between Beerschot's away and home form is and remains huge.  Also tonight our Mannekes didn't succeed to secure the three points in front of our fans. Young Anderlecht were stronger, better organised and more efficient in the box. They scored in every half and that proved to be enough to claim victory. Ryan Sanusi's consolation goal came too late...

Beerschot showed a lot of goodwill but failed to find a gap in the perfectly organised RSCA Futures' defense. Verlinden, Baeten and Thorisson tried their luck but were denied by the visiting goalkeeper or saw their shots go wide and over. RSCA came close when both Lathouwers and Matthys went for the ball with our goalkeeper saving at the very last minute. Halfway the first half it all turned sour: Matthys lost the ball at the halfway line trying to make his way through three visitors. Ait El Hadj punished with a big grin on his face, rounding Lathouwers and putting the ball in an empty net. A painful and costly mistake it would turn out to be.

Verlinden and Seydoux came close to an equaliser but Verbruggen saved the first shot while the rebound was cleared off the line. Minutes later Rigo's free kick narrowly missed the target. 

It hardly got any better in the second half. Beerschot's build up was too slow and sloppy. The only threats came from set pieces, with another free kick from Rigo that Van den Bergh couldn't convert. RSCA Futures reacted on the break twenty minutes from the end with a long run from Agyei on the right wing, a low cross and Stassen rounding off. Efficient and classy. Two-nil, game over. 

Ryan Sanusi gave Beerschot a glimmer of hope when he scored a good goal from just inside the box, but it was all too little too late...
