Belgian champions Standard de Liege could have wished for a better season opening, being held to a 2-2 draw by newly promoted Sint-Truiden.
Cephas Chimedza had the honor of scoring the very first goal of the season in the 24th minute, and handed the away side a rather unexpected lead on 24 minutes.
Igor De Camargo then controlled a long ball before beating keeper Mignolet in ithe 37th minute and put his side ahead from a corner in the 56th.
But the guests never gave up and Vincent Euvrard made it 2-2 in the 73rd minute.
Standard had the perfect opportunity to secure the win late on but Axel Witsel wasn’t successful from the penalty spot. The young midfielder first missed but the referee called for a re-take. This second attempt was then saved by Mignolet.
