Belgium Jupiler League – Lokeren vs Standard Liege 31/08/2014


Lokeren news:

On Thursday evening they experienced a sweet (2-1) defeat in England from Hull City and in conjunction with the first match 1-0 they qualified for the first time in their history in the groups of the Europa League (facing Metalist Kharkiv, Trabzonspor and Legia Warsaw).

In the league they reminded the famous Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in an away defeat to Cercle Brugge (1-0).

They were languid in the first part and were fairly found back in score in 26′. They reacted in the second part and played Cercle Brugge in the half court, but they were very tenuous at final attempt and therefore they failed to avoid defeat.

Standard Liege news:

On Tuesday they defeated for the second time by Zenit (3-0, they had lost 1-0 in Belgium) and continue in Europa League (located in the same group with Feyenoord, Rijeka and Seville).

In the league they have not tasted the joy of victory in the past three games. They were irritatingly unlucky at home against Westerlo, remained at 2-2 and were removed even more from the top of the standings. The loss of both penalties and the shot at the post were the culmination of their misfortune in second part while the score still was 2-2.

“We keep the positives from the games against Zenit and turn our attention to the league. We will do everything we can to win Lokeren” said coach Luzon.
