Antwerp and STVV kept each other in balance at the Bosuilstadium, in a match that ended as it began: 0-0.
The game started with an early opportunity for Lamkel Zé, but he stumbled on goalkeeper Schmidt. After that, it was a long time waiting for an opportunity. Both teams played from a strong organization and gave little away.
Shortly before the break there was a rare opportunity for Brüls. He headed over a cross from Suzuki. At the other side De Laet missed the a big chance.
After the break STVV came a bit more in the game. Just past the hour the Canaries grabbed perhaps the best chance of the match. Brüls found Suzuki in the sixteen with a free kick. The striker decided to go wide at the first post.
Neither team came closer to scoring the opening goal. Also a whole bunch of substitutes did not change anything and so 0-0 was the final score.
