The first half was all but devoid of chance with neither Standard nor Waasland-Beveren producing much in the way of goalmouth action.
Baldé (on loan to Waasland-Beveren from Celtic) and Standard’s Ciman produced just about the only moments of excitement in a dull first half.
A beauty from Mpoku
The second half saw Standard go on the offensive. Ciman’s header hit the post early on. Beveren failed to heed the warning and Teixeira headed home on 52 to make it 1-0 to the visitors.
Waasland-Beveren were unable to come back and it was over and out for the East Flemings when a beautifully taken Mpoku free-kick went over the wall land past the Waasland-Beveren keeper Colin Coosemans to make it 2-0 to Standard.
The result sees Standard climb up to 7th place with 11 points from 8 games. Waasland-Beveren are 13th with 8 points.
