GAMES RSC Anderlecht and AA Ghent ended the second matchday in the play-offs with a scoreless draw. This means that nothing changes in the ranking, as also Bruges obtained one point from their clash with Charleroi.
Anderlecht and Ghent were both too afraid to lose, so the first half was very boring to follow. Both teams kept a strong organisation and were not accurate enough in the passing to create serious chances. The 0-0 at half time was more than logical.
The second half was slightly better. Ghent started with more offensive impulses, but Kubo sent three good chances over the target. Half-way the second half, also Anderlecht realised they could knock Bruges and Ghent out of the title race with a victory. The Mauves took control and Tielemans came close to scoring, but the crossbar stood in his way. Anderlecht increased the pressure but didn't come further than a few good centres that were intercepted by the visiting defence. In the very last second, Thelin had an excellent opportunity, but his effort was blocked by a defender.
