An exciting three-way battle is brewing in the women’s football play-offs

Women football

The Lotto Super League faces a very exciting conclusion. After the regular competition, the three title candidates OHL, Standard and Anderlecht are on a handkerchief.

In recent years, it has mainly been between OHL and Anderlecht in the highest women’s football class, but this season Standard is also getting involved in the title battle. The record champion, who has been waiting for a new title since 2017, closed the regular competition with a win against Zulte Waregem. The Rouches start the play-offs as joint leader alongside OHL.

OHL has been in second place for the past three years, but hopes to finally win its first national title this year. On Saturday, the Leuven team dominated against Genk for another ninety minutes, although they were only able to score once. “We should have scored at least two goals in the first half alone,” said Leuven coach Jimmy Coenraets, more than satisfied. “Genk has little to counter that. I think they really threatened me at most twice. No, I’m really satisfied. It has been a while since I saw my team play so well.”


National champion Anderlecht also gained a lot of confidence last weekend with a monster score against Charleroi (6–0). It ends the regular competition in third place, one point behind OHL and Standard. “We have achieved a strong recovery and you can feel the winning mood in the group,” said goalscorer Fran Meersman.

Double good news for Anderlecht, because captain Laura De Neve made her return on Saturday after a long period of injury. A serious boost in the title fight. “We are gradually reaching full strength and are ready for the play-offs,” Meersman concluded. The play-offs start on March 22. (hvw
