Standard de Liege, Belgium
Jupiler Pro (1st) League
Mouscron- Peruwelz -Standard: 5-2. Att. 9,500
Ouch. Thrashed by a small town team who were only promoted last season. However Standard were apparently depleted by injury, and will also have had one eye on Wednesday’s UCL game with Zenit. Ajdarevic started but was subbed on 61’. Thuram was on the bench. Tony Watt, signed from Celtic, scored.
Újpest FC, Hungary
NB 1 (1st Division)
Ujpest -Debrecen : 1-0. Att. n/a
Ah, another injury time winner, and against the current champions too. RD will have been in a good mood. This is a solid start by Ujpest with 8points from the first four games.
Agrupación Deportiva Alcorcón, Spain
Segunda (2nd) Division
Season starts 24th August
Sint - Truidense VV, Belgium
Belgacom Second Division
STVV - Seresien: 1-2
A disappointing result against a promoted team. Polish Pete played the full game . STVV are 7th after 3 games.
FC Carl Zeiss Jena, Germany
Jena – Erzgebirge Aue : 0-1. Att. 8,745
Note the attendance, four times the average. The national cup had thrown up a local derby with neighbours Aue, two divisions higher.
