I already visited the Soevereinstadion 2 times but as I couldn't find the pictures of those games back, it was time for a re-revisit, against the famous Royal Antwerp FC, followed by over 1.000 fans for this away game. 

Lommel United aren't doing well this season being in last position with only 15 points from 19 games. Antwerp are doing fine this period but in general I (and probably many others) expected much more from this big club. But anyway, as this competition is divided in 2 championships, followed by some more play-offs, there is always a chance of going up in the end!

Antwerp started the game furiously and were already 0-2 up after 15 minutes. Just before the break, the visitord even added a 3th to the scoreboard, 0-3. After the break the opposite happened as the home team started furiously, making it 2-3 with only 55 minutes played.

After these 2 quick goals, Lommel United tried to equalise and Antwerp got a few good chances to finish the game but they only killed the game with 10 more minutes to go after another counter, 2-4.

The Soevereinstadion is a beautiful ground in Northern Limburg which might disappear in the near future as the club has plans to move to a new ground.
