Three hard-fought points in Sint-Truiden

On Sunday, the Mauves travelled to the Daio Wasabi Stayen Stadium for the third game in the Jupiler Pro League. The only change from last weekend's win against Antwerp was that an injured Zeno Debast was replaced by Louis Patris, which saw Killian Sardella move to the central position in defense. After a hard-fought encounter on the Stayen artificial pitch, Sporting came out on top 0-1, thanks to Moussa N'Diaye's first goal for the club. 

The opening exchanges were evenly balanced, but our rivals were soon putting pressure on Maxime Dupé. On the quarter-hour mark, the French goalkeeper made a superb save to deny Fatih Kaya's powerful shot. Our goalie then saved another Ryotaro Ito effort. Anderlecht hit back when Theo Leoni placed a volley narrowly over the bar. Francis Amuzu and Anders Dreyer then did little to trouble goalkeeper Daniel Yabuki Schmidt, so it was goalles at the half-time whistle.

Francis Amuzu came within a whisker of opening the scoring on the restart. But it was only a matter of time, as Anders Dreyer's excellent cross found Moussa D'Diaye, who headed into the net. Unfortunately, Dreyer was shown the red card shortly after, after a cloumsy foul. However, it was RSCA who again threatened with a shot from Kasper Dolberg. Ten against eleven, our players never gave in and they took all the points from this trip, thanks in particular to a final fine save from Maxime Dupé. Six points out of a possible nine and an eighth consecutive game without defeat (including seven wins) against the Canaries.
