Kortrijk share the points with Mouscron

Kortrijk still have no wins this season. Kortrijk drew at home against Mouscron 2-2.

The first half of the match was pretty much a show of how not to play good football. The tempo was exceptionally slow and one bad pass after the next was about all there was to see. Both teams seemed to have trouble with the extreme heat.

Both Kortrijk and Mouscron came back somewhat refreshed after half-time and the match really started. Jaycee Okwunwanne opened the scoring for the visitors in the 48th minute. Leon Benko came back for the equaliser for the home team just three minutes later. And two minutes further Belhocine put the home team in the lead 2-1 in the 73rd minute.

A 2-1 victory looked clinched for Kortrijk at the very end of official time. But in the 90th minute Okwunwanne brought the equaliser for Mouscron. The West Flemish team had to split the points with the Walloon club.
