Philippe Clement's team, which was defeated by Paris Saint Germain last Wednesday in the Champions League, set the match in the first half. It was in the 25th minute, when Siebe Schrijvers took a pass from Percy Tau.
Everything changed in the second part of the clash played in the Bosuilstadion. The Antwerp, weighed down by the scorers of their last two games (a draw and a defeat), amended the situation at the beginning of the second half, when Congolese Dieumerci Mbokani transformed a penalty and put the boards on the scoreboard.
Clement's team tried to regain control, but in a local attack action, a play by Manuel Benson's left wing ended with a cross to the small area. Goal Simon Mignolet introduced the ball into his goal and Antwerp got ahead.
It was the first defeat of Club Brujas, Real Madrid's rival in the Champions League, in the Belgian League, in which he dominates with ten wins and three draws. EFE
