GAMES Fred Rutten has also concluded his second away game as coach of Anderlecht with a loss. At Sclessin Anderlecht lost with 2-1. Because of the victory of STVV against Eupen, Anderlecht is now seventh in the ranking.
Anderlecht started with newcomer Bolasie on the bench. Zulj was in the starting eleven for the first time. Standard started the match firmly, but Anderlecht held up relatively easily. Purple-white soon came into the game. However, the goal fell for the home team. Cimirot first encountered Didillon, but a minute later Didillon was beaten by a very nice shot from Marin.
"What Marin can do, I can also," Kums must have thought. Just five minutes later, the Anderlecht midfielder was behind a free kick and he painted the leather nicely in the left corner. Emond and Santini both got a chance to give their team the lead at halftime, but that did not happen. 1-1 halfway.
On the hour, Sclessin again straight for a world goal. In vain: Visser rejected Carcela's goal for a prior fault of Laifis. The stands clearly did not agree with Visser, but the decision was correct. Halfway through the second half, Trebel replaced an invisible Zulj. Not long after, Rutten also threw Bolasie into the fight.
After the rejected goal the game stopped. Before the break this clasico was a pleasant spectacle, but the last half hour there was not much more football to be seen. Only five minutes before time we were able to record another good chance. Didillon saved nicely on an attempt by Mpoku. It was only a delay. In the 88th minute he outwitted Didillon in the short corner: 2-1. We could not call it well deserved. Mpoku was lucky that he immediately afterwards he did not get a red card after a foul mistake on Bakkali.
