Poor standard

On Saturday we went to a football match in Liège for the first time. Standard de Liège played Zulte Waregem. As the Standard are third in the league and challengers for the first place, while Zulte Waregem are 10th, it was supposed to be a walk in the park. It was not, the away team ended up winning 1-2. Nevertheless, it was a nice experience, I liked the atmosphere of the game. The fans were passionate but not violent. Here's a view of a stand full of Standard fans.


Here's an action from the first half, the Standard are attacking.


At half time, they released all these balloons as part of a campaign called Men Against Violence to Women. The police strongly encouraged us to sign the petition as soon as we entered the stadium. I just love such grass roots initiatives.
