Zulte Waregem and Charleroi keep each other in balance in a hefty practice pot

With Charleroi, Essevee faced a worthy opponent for the first time in this preparation. Zulte Waregem had so far already shown great things against amateur teams, but a team from 1A was clearly different. That became clear after two minutes, because in the first attack Morioka was given too much time and space, so that the Japanese could put the ball nicely behind Bostyn.

Charleroi remained the better team after the opening goal and the Carolos also threatened a second time via Heymans. However, his header went over. Gradually Essevee recovered the balance and after twenty minutes it could also threaten for the first time: Sylla could not do enough with a cross from Ciranni. However, it turned out to be a rare flare-up from the home side, as although it got the ball from de Charleroi in the build-up, Essevee piled up the sloppiness at the slightest pressure.

Still, it was almost 1-1 halfway through the first half. Lopez took a cross well off the shoe, but his effort shattered against the crossbar. Ei so after, Tchatchoua made it 0-2 on the other side immediately afterwards, but his attempt also hit the goal box. After that, it also became a bit less with the visitors. The opportunities were there, but the Carolo’s did not come up with finished opportunities.

Charleroi coach Edward Still changed almost his entire team and Essevee was able to take advantage of that quickly. Jelle Vossen first aimed straight at Delavallée, but moments later he was allowed to moor from the spot after a mistake by substitute Dalle Molle on Drambaiev. Vossen did not fail and hung the plates in balance. It was the signal for Essevee to push a little more, resulting in a few opportunities. On the hour, Essevee coach Mbaye Leye in turn made six substitutions, again taking the flow out of the game.

Going into the last twenty minutes, Essevee seemed to find his better momentum again. For example, it took an excellent parade from Delavallée to keep Derijck from the 2-1 and Gano was one toe short to extend a cross from Novatus Miroshi – the Tanzanian midfielder who was only introduced yesterday. A minute later, the same Gano aimed a very high chance, after Tambedou, Braem and Thiam did not get past Delavallée. On the other side, Petkevicius put the ball face to face with Bostyn wide. In the end, there were no more goals, so this practice pot ultimately had no winner.
