Anderlecht has done a good job and beat Moskou. They won the game with 0-2, with goals by Matias Suarez and Dieumerci Mbokani.
Though the scoreline doesn't really tell the real story about the game. The home side was better during a large part of the game, especially in the first 10 minutes of each half. Anderlecht could count on a good Proto though to assist his sometimes hesitating defence and keep the nil.
In the second half, also the referee assisted Anderlecht, when a valid Lokomotiv goal didn't count, because the linesman had raised his flag for offside.
Meanwhile, Anderlecht proved to be deadly efficient. The Mauves had their first chance after 10 minutes and Suarez immediately scored a fantastic goal. Mbokani, who had replaced Canesin, completed the perfect hold-up when he headed the 0-2 into the goal.
After that, the Russian spirit broke and the 0-3 came closer than the 1-2.
