More success
Eerste Klasse champions for the last two seasons, Les Rouches opened the scoring with half an hour gone when Dieudonné Mbokani embarked on a solo run and slid a precise pass into the path of Wilfried Dalmat, who calmly beat goalkeeper Davino Verhulst. Laszlo Bölöni's side made sure of the silverware just before the hour, substitute Mehdi Carcela-González supplying Axel Witsel, who rounded Verhulst and tucked the ball into the unguarded net.
