Dessers outshines Onuachu as Genk held Standard Leige in Jupiler League opener

Cyriel Dessers grabbed an assist for KRC Genk in their opening 2021-2022 Belgian Jupiler league match against Standard Liege on Friday.

Dessers started the game from the bench as Genk’s coach kept faith with last season’s top scorer Paul Onuachu.


Super-sub Cyriel Dessers, however, came off the bench for his compatriot Onuachu immediately after Konstantinos Laifis gave the hosts the lead on the 62nd minute, off an assist from Hugo Siquet.

The 25-year-old later set up Theo Bongonda for the equaliser two minutes into the added time as Genk salvaged a 1-1 draw against their hosts.

Onuachu did impress and he was unlucky not to score with Liege’s goalkeeper denying him twice and he also missed one big chance.

The former Midtjylland striker also had three shots off target, 83% pass accuracy, while he won five of the nine duels he faced.
