Anderlecht escaped disaster tonight in the Cup. The Mauves managed to qualify, after extra time and penalties. Third division club URS Centre had the best chances though, especially at the end of the second half.

Anderlecht equalised twice: once in the first half through Chavarria and once in the second half through Gillet. The visitors didn't really have any good chances and were very lucky to make it to extra time (2-2). This because the home side had several open chances to finish the game.

And during extra time, disaster struck: Biglia got injured and couldn't be replaced since Jacobs had already made three changes. Suarez also got red, so the Belgian champions were down to nine men. Goalkeeper Schollen defended Anderlecht's goal well and dragged his team into a penalty shoot out.

And also in that shoot-out, Schollen was the saviour of the Brussels' team. Anderlecht qualified after the penalty shoot out: 1-4.
