GAMES Anderlecht made their longest travel ever for a European game, all the way to Azerbaijan, where it will face FC Qarabag tonight. Coach Besnik Hasi already indicated he's expecting a hard game and he wants his team to play well organised.

The Mauves are also worried about jetlag. Therefore they only travelled to Azerbaijan one day before the match. The players also had to stay up until 2am. By doing so, their biorhythm doesn't have to adapt to the local time. Most doctors agree this is the best way to prepare for the match.

53 Anderlecht fans made the long trip to support their team. The game is important though. Qarabag is being seen as the weakest opponent in Anderlecht's group, so a win is absolutely necessary to be able to compete with Tottenham and Monaco for a place in the next round.
