GAMES Anderlecht gained three points against Sint-Truiden but once again the performance was not convincing. Idrissa Sylla obtained the victory for Anderlecht, a win they did not deserve.
Anderlecht had the perfect start. After only one minute Anderlecht were awarded a penalty kick after a foul on Dodi Lukebakio. Youri Tielemans did not hesitate and scored the 1-0. Anderlecht played a good first quarter but slowed down and that resulted in the equalizer after 24 minutes.
In the second half, Anderlecht showed how uninspired and unmotivated they are at the moment. Sint-Truiden had several scoring opportunities, but did not manage to score. Short before the final whistle, Anderlecht got what they did not deserve: Idrissa Sylla scored and obtained the victory.
