GAMES Anderlecht have failed to defeat Spartak Trnava at home. The Purple & White played a 0-0 draw. Many boys got their chance, but not everyone grabbed this. Mohammed Dauda scored points.
Due to many injuries and because Anderlecht was already eliminated, Vanhaezebrouck opted for a experimental team. The young Africans Edo Kayembe and Mohammed Dauda, among others, got a chance, just like Ryota Morioka, Knowledge Musona and Kenny Saief. It were the two youngsters who showed the most. Especially Dauda showed good things in the combination.
Purple-white remained Trnava simply the boss, but this did not lead to a goal. Dauda was the closest, but his shot stranded on the post. Kayembe also tried it from a distance. After the break there were fewer chances. Fifteen minutes before the end Morioka got a good chance at the 1-0. He played himself free, but his shot was the ideal ball for a goalkeeper.
Ten minutes before the end, Vanhaezebrouck threw three new youngsters into the field. Verschaerenen, and especially Amuzu, created a bit danger, but a goal was not scored.
