GAMES One day before the end of the regular season, Anderlecht is certain to participate in Play-Off 1. It won with 2-0 against Kortrijk and STVV lost points against Mouscron. Anderlecht is now fifth and of the duo Gent and STVV, only one can jump over them.
From the start, Anderlecht showed good intentions, but for the first chance we had to wait twenty minute. Gerkens found Zulj, but he didn't score the free head opportunity. On the other side, it was a shock when Stojanovic saw the ball saved from the line after a corner and Avenatti headed the rebound on the crossbar.
A little past the half hour the home team gained the lead. Kums infiltrated from the left, cut in and from the edge of the sixteen kicked nicely in the far corner: 1-0. That was also the halftime score, because a kick of Bolasie hit the bar via the fingertips of Bruzzese.
Anderlecht also controlled the game after the break, but the gap remained tight. Fortunately for purple-white, Chevalier hit the ball against the bar and Avenatti, who scored the rebound, was offside. Twenty minutes before the end, Kums decided the game with his second of the evening. He put a free kick over the wall in the shortest corner. In the final phase, Amuzu could score the 3-0 when he faced Bruzzese after a great solo, which he started on his own half.
Because of this victory, Anderlecht are certain to participate in Play-Off 1. STVV played a draw and is now behind Anderlecht. Next week, STVV and Ghent, the two pursuers, will play against each other. Only one of them can jump over Anderlecht.
