As Arsenal Oplinter is about to merge with VV Houtem, I absolutely wanted to visit this ground as there is a chance they won't be playing here anymore next season.

Arsenal Oplinter was founded in 1941 and has always played in the provincial leagues with 23 seasons in the lowest 4th provincial league, 32 seasons in the 3nd provincial league and 20 seasons in the 2nd provincial league, in which they are nowadays active for the 10th consecutive season. 

Oplinter are safe from relegation while Averbode-Okselaar are closing in to the 4th position, which may be a promotion spot. Both sides got a few chances but it were the visitors who managed to score the only goal of the game before the break, resulting in a 0-1 final score.
