The KAS Eupen players didn’t have much time to savor their 2-1 victory over RSC Anderlecht. Only three days after their home match against the record national champion, they will play their next Pro League championship match. On Wednesday evening, 31 October, Eupen will take on Cercle Bruges at 8.30 PM – again in the Kehrweg Stadium.
KAS and Cercle squint at a position in the middle of the championship table
Ahead of Wednesday’s game, both teams have 13 points on the credit side and rank in positions 11 and 12 respectively in the overall standings. Yet another victory would probably mean both KAS Eupen or Cercle advance to the middle of the table. Tickets for the game KAS Eupen – Cercle Bruges are still available at the box office from 7.00 PM.
Jordan Lotiés replaces Rocky Bushiri
Coach Claude Makelele has to do without defender Rocky Bushiri in the match against Cercle Bruges. The 18-year-old is suspended after receiving his 5th yellow card of the season. “Now Jordan Lotiés gets the chance to prove himself in this position”, the coach announced at the game’s press conference. Claude Makelele will decide at short notice whether there will be further changes in the starting line-up. “Playing three games in a week is quite strainful indeed, but too many changes could affect the team’s balance. That’s why I’ll be thinking very carefully whether I’ll make any more changes.” The team manager warned against being careless after defeating Anderlecht. “We’ve fallen into this trap before, I don’t want it to happen again”, said Claude Makelele.
After the final whistle: Halloween party in the KAS Lounge
As the home game of KAS Eupen coincides with Halloween day, the club will be holding a big Halloween party after the game in the KAS Lounge. All visitors to the game in possession of a valid ticket (season ticket or day ticket) have free admission. Guests who were not attending the game pay 5 Euro entrance fee. DJ Carezza will be standing at the turntables and creating the right atmosphere. A delicious Halloween cocktail will be offered on the theme of the evening.
