KVC Westerlo and R. Standard de Liège will meet in May's Belgian Cup final after coming through severe last-four tests.
Standard ended KAA Gent's defence but had to do it the hard way having lost the away leg 1-0. Jelle Van Damme (19) levelled the aggregate scoreline only for Elimane Coulibaly (20) to hit back immediately, leaving the Rouches needing to score twice. They managed three, through Mohammed Tchité (33, 74) and Mehdi Carcela-González (69), meaning Ilombe Mboyo's header eight minutes from time was mere consolation.
Westerlo, the 2001 winners, stand between Standard and a first Belgian Cup since 1993 after edging past Cercle Brugge KSV on away goals. The first leg ended scoreless but a repeat was never on the cards during an open match in which visitors Westerlo twice come from behind before Henrique's goal just after the hour made it 3-2. Dominic Foley (80) equalised to set up a grandstand finish, but Cercle Brugge could not find a winner.
The final takes place in Brussels on 21 May.
