GAMES - WEBSITE In the 4th game of the season, Anderlecht couldn't come any further than a draw against Eupen. The Mauves took the lead twice, but Eupen managed to equalize. Newcomers Capel and Teodorczyk scored the Anderlecht-goals. 

Eupen started the game with a lot of enthusiasm. After 15 minutes Teodorczyk missed the first chance after a nice pass of Tielemans. In the 21st minute, Capel scores his first goal for the Mauves after a pass from Hanni. Anderlecht remained dangerous with a freekick on the post by Tielemans. Right before half-time, Eupen scored the equalizer thanks to Mamadou Sylla, and even had the chance to take the lead when Ocansey went through on goal. The attacker wasn't able to score: 1-1 at half-time. 

In the second half, Anderlecht-striker Teodorczyk gave Anderlecht the lead when Eupen-goalie Van Crombrugge stopped a strike by Hanni. The Polish striker was in the right position to score his third goal for Anderlecht in the rebound. Anderlecht kept controlling the game, with Hanni being present in every action. The Mauves lowered the pace of the game, and Eupen kept pushing for the equalizer, which came ten minutes before the end of the game. The 18-year-old Lazare's strike got deviated by Dendoncker and landed on the post, when suddenly the ball ended up on Roef's head, landing into the goal: 2-2. Anderlecht tried to make a third goal, but didn't manage to do so. 

Anderlecht ends up with 8 points out of 4 games and thus misses the chance to catch up with Zulte-Waregem at the top of the league.
