GAMES Anderlecht are always a bit better when they are under pressure. Despite the high pressure against KV Kortrijk, they obtained an easy 3-0 victory. Okaka, Acheampong and Kara scored the goals for the Mauves.
Anderlecht made an excellent start, with Praet's first attempt after only three minutes and few minutes later that same Praet gave the assist for Stefano Okaka: 1-0 after a great strike by the Italian.
Okaka tried again later on, but in vain. There still came a couple of chances for both teams in the first half, but none of them were successful.
The second half was also solid from Anderlecht's side. Acheampong quickly scored a goal and Djuricic was close to the 3-0. After about one hour's play, Kara scored his first goal for Anderlecht.
Twenty minutes before the final whistle, Stéphane Badji committed a foul and he received a well-deserved red card by referee Lambrechts. Anderlecht did not have any problems anymore and ended the match with an easy 3-0 victory.
