STVV - R. Excel Mouscron : 0-1

The Canaries lost their opening match to Mouscron 0-1. A goal from Olinga in the first half was enough for the visitors from Hainaut.

STVV took the initiative in the initial phase of the party, but on the soaking wet turf it did not come to opportunities. Just past fifteen minutes it suddenly became warm for the Truien goal. Mohamed decided through Godeau's leg against the outside of the pole.

The opening goal came just under ten minutes before half-time. Olinga curled a free kick in the lower left corner, 0-1. That was also the rest position.

After the break, Sint-Truiden showed more combativeness. Garcia was close to equalizing, but his magnificent free kick was pushed by goalkeeper Vasic. Not much later, the same Vasic had to take action again, this time on a good attempt by Balongo. Botaka, too, was close, but he also couldn't get the ball across.

Mouscron was able to counter occasionally and had some small chances but was unable to cash them in. Also the substitute Boli on Truiense side could not straighten out the crooked situation and so the opening match at Stayen turned out to be a 0-1 defeat.
