Anderlecht and Gent kept the second leg of the Cup quarter finals exciting. The Mauves returned from Gent with a 1-1 draw. A score that was put on the scoreboard early in the match. Despite many chances, it didn't change anymore.
Anderlecht started with almost their strongest team and took control over the match with offensive football. AA Gent counter attacked fiercefully. A recipe that led to early goals. After nine minutes Jovanovic scored and Mboyo equalised five minutes later when he scored in the rebound.
From then on, Anderlecht monopolized the ball, played with fast combinations and created many chances. Gent kept lurking on the counter attack. The game stayed exciting but the Brussels' team lacked precision to score the goals they deserved. That way, the match ended in a draw.
