Futsal first nationalAntwerp has won the derby in Lier 2-3. With this victory, the team climbs to third place in the ranking. There is no longer a bad bad start. On Friday, the team wants to continue their advance against Eisden Dorp.
Numbers can be misleading. A 2-3 victory in Lier does not seem immediate, but Antwerp was the master of the derby. Captain Ahmed Sababti tipped off. “Our win was more than deserved. We reached the target wood five times. We also had a lot of open opportunities. Goalkeeper Robin Segher played a huge game for Lier. The figures actually point to a difficult match, but that picture does not correspond to reality. Only the finish was a problem. We arrive at. Winch equalizes, but we ran out of rust 1-3. Although the home side still scored, we never run into problems.”
The Antwerp victory came at a good time. After a one in three leeks, a failed start in the making. The victories against Chatelet and Lier have allayed doubts. Ahmed Sababti has definitely left by train. “It was only not good in Borgloon. That’s where we gave away the win. We settle to go easy. Against Lier, Mouscron and Chatelet we are our duty and we play good futsal together. Chatelet is ten slot still a solid candidate for the play-offs. The defeat against Halle-Gooik must be framed. We played well, but collided with a strong stronger one that day.”
Antwerp will take on Eisden Dorp in the sport Vrijdaghal. Ahmed Sababti looks ahead. “In principle, we should not have any problems against the Limburgers, but I am always careful. Amar Zouggaghi suffered a muscle tear and is out of action for several weeks. I also struggled with a contracture against Lier. that will be sorted by Friday. If we do what we have to do, there is no problem. The team is gradually getting into a rhythm. We have to continue that line.”
