Royal Mouscron could not manage to lift themselves from their poor run of form as they suffered another league loss, with Trezeguet playing the full match.

Mahmoud Hassan Trezeguet, who had a red card rescinded, was in the team for Mouscron as they hosted Gent, on matchday 15. The two teams were playing for points in their different battles at opposite ends of the Belgian Pro League table.

Royal Mouscron were hoping to lift themselves from a dreadful run of results, that has left them fighting relegation. Gent, on the other hand, wanted to build up a consistent run of results.

Trezeguet’s side had the first chance but it was the visitors who controlled proceedings for most of the first half. And they went to the break deservedly ahead thanks to a headed goal, in the 40th minute, by Jérémy Perbet.

In the second half, KAA Gent maintained their hold on the game and could have been 2-0 up on the hour mark. Milicevic was left one-on-one with the goalkeeper, Delac, but his strike was ruled out for offside.

There wasn’t alot of action in the way of chances. The referee was pretty involved though as he had to repeatedly dish out yellow cards. On one of these instances, Trezeguet had his shirt pulled and the culprit got onto the referee’s book.

The first scoring opportunity, in the second period, for the game chasing Mouscron came in the 80th minute. Substitute, Ferber had his header tipped over the bar by the Gent goalie. Any hope they had of rescuing a point, from the match, was ended by Gent’s own substitutes. 

The first substitute, Dejaegere was brought down in the Mouscron box in the 86th minute. Then, one minute later, the other substitute, Saief scored the awarded penalty by sending the ball on the right of the post.

The loss leaves Royal Mouscron languishing near the bottom of the Belgian league table. The side has 11 points from 15 matches. They next face Anderlecht, a team Trezeguet hopes to return to.

I have dedicated part of my time in this bad world to following African football. From CECAFA to WAFU, COSAFA to UNAF & even the forgotten UNIFFAC.
