Anderlecht beat Cercle Bruges today with 3-2 after an exciting match. The Mauves stay at the top of the table with AA Gent following at two points.

Anderlecht started with Colin on the right back and Heylen in the centre of the defence. Deschacht took his usual place on the left back again and Najar moved to the midfield. The home side started well with Mitrovic soon opening the score after a mistake in the Brugian defence. The Belgian champions dominated, but did not pay attention well at the back and conceded the equaliser via Buyl 10 minutes later.

The Mauves kept on creating chances though with creative and technical football. Not much before half time, Suarez brought Anderlecht ahead again: he scored the rebound of Defour's shot.

The second half brought more of the same: attractive football of the home team with a lot of ball possession and creativity. Najar eventually scored the 3-1 after 79 minutes. Right before the end of the match Cercle came back to 3-2. Acheampong scored in injury time but he was (correctly) caught offside.
