Zulte Waregem claim Belgian Cup on penalties

Mar 20, 2017

Goalkeeper Sammy Bossut was the hero as Zulte Waregem clinched their second Belgian Cup on Sunday, beating KV Oostende in a penalty shootout at the Koning Boudewijn Stadium in Brussels.

With the score 3-3 after extra time, the match was decided on penalties for the first time since 1992. Bossut saved twice, and Zulte won the shootout 4-2.

Landry Dimata put Oostende in front on 19 minutes, but Timothy Derijck swiftly replied for Zulte. Dimata restored Oostende’s lead in the second half with a neat backheel, before Zulte again equalised through substitute Sander Coopman.

Zulte took the lead in extra time through a Babacar Gueye header, but Knowledge Musona levelled from the spot, forcing the game to a shootout.

Meanwhile, Genk eased into the last eight of the Europa League last week with a 1-1 draw against an insipid Gent, sealing a resounding 6-3 aggregate win. The result secured their place in the last eight of European competition for the first time, and they will play Spain’s Celta Vigo on 13 and 20 April.

The most anticipated Europa League quarter-final will pit Anderlecht against Manchester United. Anderlecht ousted Apoel Nicosia of Cyprus in the last 16, winning the second tie 1-0 in Brussels last week after having won the away leg 1-0.

The omens are not good for Anderlecht, who lost 10-1 against United in 1956 and 5-1 in their last visit to Old Trafford, in September 2000. But they won their most recent game 2-1, in Brussels in October 2000.
