VIDEO: Trezeguet scores incredible solo goal in draw against Genk
Both Mouscron and Genk bounced back, with wins, from defeats in their respective last league matches and looked to continue the momentum in their encounter.
It was Trezeguet’s great form took centre stage right at the beginning of the match. The young Egyptian had grabbed two assists in his last match for Royal Mouscron and started well against Genk. Mahmoud Trezeguet ghosted past challengers the half way line to give his team the lead, through an incredible goal.
KRC Genk stepped up immediately after the equalizer but found Mouscron to be solid in defense. As the half wore on, the host’s defense began to cave in to pressure and Genk got the equalizing goal. Nikolaos Kaleis beat the offside trap, in the 32nd minute, to finish off a great break by KRC Genk.
Mahmoud Trezeguet’s side suffered a double tragedy as soon after the goal, their player Markovic had to come off due to injury. His substitute, Viola, made it a blessing in disguise by restoring the home teams’s lead. The Argentine’s shot, in the 42nd minute, was deflected by a Genk defender for the halftime score to read 2-1 to Mouscron. Trezeguet was involved in this goal as well; setting up Viola for the shot.
Genk started the second half strongly, always looking to find their Greek striker Karelis but non of their moves resulted in a goal. This forced the visitors into changes. One of which was bringing on, the former TP Mazembe striker, Mbwana Samatta in around the 70th minute mark.
The changes bore fruit and Genk drew level in the 78th minute. Samatta sent in a low cross, from the left, for Nikolaos Karelis to tap home unmarked. Both sides had half chances in the five minutes of added time but there was no adding onto the 2-2 score line
