GAMES The last victory of Anderlecht in Standard dates back to February 2012. Today, finally another victory followed. The Mauves beat Standard with the smallest difference after a goal of Teodorczyk. Anderlecht reclaims the second place in the ranking.

The clash between Anderlecht and Standard was one with few chances. Standard had almost 70% ball possession in the first 20 minutes of the match, but not could create any serious chance. During the second part of the first half, Anderlecht took control and had three excellent chances with Chipciu, Kara and Stanciu. Standard defender Fai was lucky not to get the red card after a harsh tackle on Stanciu.

The second half didn't bring much. Standard had a bunch of chances but their offensive didn't last long. The only important moment afterwards, was Teodorczyk's goal. The striker was stronger than his defender and faster than goalkeeper Gillet. That way, he headed the winning goal against the net after 78 minutes of play: 0-1. Standard could not react anymore and lost for the first time in four years at home against Anderlecht.
