On the 11th match day of the Jupiler Pro League, Cercle were second bottom before heading to the coast to take on Oostende. Groen-Zwart played a dogged match and took the lead through Somers. KVO were on the ropes, but 2 moments turned the result, as Gueye and Amade sealed the points at home for the Kustboys.
Yves Vanderhaeghe had made some striking changes to his team. Sousa was given his debut at the back. The Brazilian defender was finally free from injury and was given the start over Popovic. In attack, the duo of Millàn and Somers were tasked to score goals and in midfield Van der Bruggen replaced the injured Kanouté.
Cercle got off to a good start and played well against the tenth-placed side in the Jupiler Pro League. The high pressure from Groen-Zwart, under the impulse of the hard-working Somers, tested the Oostende defence. Real chances had to wait until the 20th minute, though, as Utkus was able to play out from the back, finding Vanhoutte who had the 0-1 at hand, but came up short against Fortes.
