Anderlecht defeated Beerschot yesterday with 3-2. Because of this victory, the Brussels' team remains second on one point from Club Brugge that also won. On Thursday, the Mauves play in the Europa League.
Anderlecht seemed to have an easy evening when it came 2-0 ahead after just 30 minutes of play. Certainly because the visiting team didn't show any offensive intent.
The second half proved to be different though. Porokara took advantage when Deschacht left him some space and scored. Just a few minutes later, a bad control of Biglia placed that same Porokara alone in the box. The was pulled down by Kouyaté: penalty. Losada, ex-Anderlecht, converted the penalty and got yellow himself when he crawled upon the fences to celebrate.
An expensive yellow card, since two minutes later he hardly tackled Kljestan and was sent off with a second yellow.
Anderlecht took control again and put pressure on the visitors. Several chances where missed, until Gillet scored his second of the evening, on a rebound on a chance for Suarez. At that moment, only one minute was left to play, so 3-2 was also the final result.
