Anderlecht have been defeated by Cercle Brugge with 1-2. The visitors already scored the opening goal after 50 seconds. Iachtchouk was forgotten by the defense and his hard effort went in.

Anderlecht took control of the game and created several excellent chances. Though it took until the 23rd minute before Gillet equalised. Then the pace dropped, the score remained equal at half time.

The second half was probably one of the worst ever seen this season. A powerless Anderlecht had control but couldn't threaten Cercle. On a counter attack, Cercle scored again thanks to ex-Anderlecht player Iachtchouk. Anderlecht couldn't react and they also lost Polak with an injury.
