Burnley’s owners with plenty of work to do as Kortrijk remain winless

Kortrijk remain winless after six Belgian Pro League games after a 3-0 away defeat to OH Leuven. The side, who are set to be taken over by Burnley, have had a poor start to the season. Kortrijk’s start has hardly been a surprise however, given that the ownership situation has been in flux all summer. Initially, the Kaminski Group were announced at the beginning of the summer as the clubs new owners, but it soon materialised that the new owners did not have the required funds. Burnley have now reached an agreement with Vincent Tan, but it is clear that they have plenty of work to do.

OH Leuven were another side that had not won a game all season, but their recent signing Youssef Maziz made the difference. The former FC Metz and RFC Seraing midfielder grabbed an assist for the first goal of the game, a corner which saw Federico Ricca head home. During the second half, Joel Schingtienne got his first goal for the club, before Maziz made the points safe after just an hour.

Kortrijk finished the game with more possession than their opponents, but they could not create enough chances. They are currently bottom of the league with just one point, having conceded 17 goals in their six games. The Belgian transfer window remains open for a few more weeks, and fans of the Kerels will be hoping that there is more quality incoming.
