KRC Genk are hot. A bicycle kick by Jelle Vossen on 67 minutes allowed the Limburgers to move past another in-form team, KV Kortrijk. KRC Genk picked up 23 points from their last 9 league games. Local Limburg boy Jelle Vossen spoiled the 21,000 fans with a wonderful goal (photo). "I thought: I'll take my chance. It was all or nothing. You need a little bit of luck as well. Whether this was my best goal ever? Probably, but that doesn't matter."
"Things are going fantastic. We're killers. We have a very solid defence, and all the guys can score a goal. But let's not talk about the title just yet", Jelle Vossen told reporters.
Anderlecht coach John Van den Brom saved
Anderlecht chased away a looming crisis by winning 0-3 in KV Oostende's Albert Park at the coast. (photo below: Anderlecht midfielder Sacha Kljestan celebrates with the fans that travelled to the coast. Midfielder Kljestan scored one of the 3 Anderlecht goals in Ostend, bringing his tally to 6, which makes him the club's top scorer).
Zulte Waregem put an end to a series of poor results by squeezing past AA Gent 3-2 and retain their top-6 spot. AA Gent meanwhile still haven't won a league match in 2 months' time. Sporting Lokeren move back in the top-6 at the expense of KV Kortrijk after downing Lierse 1-0.
OH Leuven were held to a disappointing 2-all draw against bottom-of-the-table Mons, while Charleroi and KV Mechelen also shared the points (2-2). Mechelen had their resurrection in the final part of the game, after having been 2-0 down.
