Antwerp must recover from a deficit of 2 goals to try to qualify for the Europa League.

Beaten on the way to Nicosia, Antwerp cannot afford to go through this Thursday.

A week ago, despite the presence of Nainggolan, Antwerp took water in Nicosia. A heavy defeat, on the score of 4-2, is a task especially in view of the ambitions of the club and the transfer window that was made by the management.

We know that the club’s goal is to be champion, no one is hiding about it. However, Europe is a nice icing on the cake and it is clear that it is sexier to play in the new Europa League (with fewer teams) than to fall back into the Conference League, without doing an insult to the latter. .

So in front of a full stadium, which will be hot, as ever, Antwerp must turn the situation around and qualify, and not give up. It will take at least two goals to go into extra time. The Great Old can do it, but the defense will not have to disperse like in the first leg.

Antwerp took a small slap in the Cypriot capital (4-2) … despite two very nice goals.

The Antwerp coach is aware of this: it is a difficult mission that will await his men next week.

The Antwerp coach knows that his team will have to create the feat but the Antwerp will be in front of their supporters.
