GAMES Anderlecht and Genk couldn't score yesterday evening in an entertaining match. The Mauves are somewhat in a negative spiral while Genk managed to turn the tide after three successive defeats at home.
Genk took a good start and immediately tested Proto, who had some difficulties with a header of Ndidi. But after the first ten minutes, the Brussels team took command over the match without creating a lot of chances. Though Genk keeper Bizot was lucky when the referee didn't see how he torpedoed Suarez just outside the box. The 0-0 score was logical halfway the match.
The pace in the second half was lower. Anderlecht kept controlling the match and had chances on a free kick of Defour and a low shot of Najar, but keeper Bizot played an excellent match. On the other side, Proto remained untested the entire second half. A final offensive of the Mauves led to an excellent chance for Sylla, but he arrived just a fraction of a second too late to head the ball into an empty goal. That way, the match ended on a scoreless draw.
