Cercle convincingly win in Dender, 0-5!

On Saturday afternoon, Cercle played their final friendly of the preseason, a visit to FC Dender. In a match played over 120 minutes, Cercle won convincingly with 0-5. Van Der Bruggen, Ueda, Hotic, Martlé and Denkey provided the goals.

There was no Daland, Utkus or Kehrer for Cercle: the trio stayed on the sidelines as a precaution, but saw Cercle off to a flying start. In order to give everyone sufficient playing time, it was decided to play football for 120 minutes and the squad was supplemented with a number of U23 players. Just as in previous weeks, Cercle started furiously and immediately put Dender under pressure. This paid off when goalkeeper Devriendt cleared a ball into Van Der Bruggen's feet and the Cercle captain in turn lobbed the ball into an empty goal, 0-1.

Dender, who didn't create anything aside from a free kick, suffered in the game. After 90 minutes a lot of youngsters came on for Cercle, but  there was no lack of intensity and enthusiasm. When a pass from Sampers came into the box, Martlé had a simple finish to make it 0-4. It wasn't over yet, now it was Denkey who would score, after Lietaert recovered the ball quickly. It was a first assist for the 17-year-old central defender, but moments later he was sent off with after he brought down M'Barki, very clearly offside, just outside the box. 0-5 was the final score in Dender: a fine victory to conclude the preparation.
