All at 15.30 hours troepten the first people together, and since that was the only busier. It was difficult for the police to make an estimate of the number of attendees. Initially, there was 8,000 people, but a moment later spoke to the police of 5,000 to 6,000 fans. This is logical, because the square only shows about 7,000 people. From 17 o'clock, the decibels, the height in with the arrival of a dj. The spelersopstelling was loudly chanted and even the Limburg anthem was mass sent. Actually there was many of the fans little doubt about the outcome of the evening. “I am now my voice is lost,” said speaker Wout Bodvin on a small break for the match. Catering Large Genk made sure that nobody too short to eat and drink.
When the players take the field, came forth, went many cheering. A first noise event was very soon in the competition achieved at the openingsdoelpunt. The well-known goaltune echoed loudly. Then it was a little nail biting to the rest, all remained many fans the confidence to keep. “As long as it remains so, you won't hear me complaining, although it is allowed a second goal, there still in," said a visibly nervous mayor Wim Dries (CD&V) with stylish Genk scarf after 45 minutes.No celebration with the players
In the second half were the fans of the heaven to the hell. After the race was the joy far find, all was affluiten still combative ‘Forza Racing’. The square walked at a fast pace is empty. With a win, would the players however still visit us in the town center, where the shaft tower of C-Mine pleasant blue-and-white colored. “To the rest I had a good feeling, but it was not for today", analyses supporter Jasper Van den Boer (25) from Pelt, who with his girlfriend Sarah the contest attended. “It is a pity that we are not a tip tackle, now it will be for one of the following contests. I have a ticket for the home game against Standard. Champion on its own field, is perhaps even more beautiful. Delay, but no adjustment."
Also, the mayor had to get the blow: “In the first half, I already felt that it is not simple. When they three times in quick succession scored, I knew that the chance of a party was small. However, I am pleased with the resilience the players showed. Typical for People. At 3-2 you could feel also in the square of hope. Thursday we do the exact same on this square. In the week I expect something a little less people than the masses of today (Dries spoke of 7,000 attendees, eds.). Now everyone can have something to drink and chat. Let it be a good dress rehearsal for the real titelfeest.”“Bruges was better”
Gilles Guisson (22) from Hasselt and Kristof Stevens (44) from Diepenbeek stared after the match sip for himself. “In the first half went so well, I don't get it,” wailed Kristof. “Club Brugge was the better team, I can admit it", jumped Gilles at him. “At 3-1 we knew that it was over. Well yes, then no party today, but Thursday we are e again!"
