GAMES Anderlecht have also lost their third game in Play-Off 1. Now the Purple & White lost against Antwerp. With an assist and a goal, Dieumerci Mbokani was the killer. Play-Off 1 threatens to become a real torture for those who love Anderlecht.
Anderlecht took control of the game from the start, but the odds fell on the other side. Fortunately Didillon was attentive. Just beyond the half hour, Gerkens cashed in on dominance. He headed Najar's pass past Bolat.
Not much later, the score was equal again when Mbokani served Lamkel Zé with a heel. 1-1 at half time.
After the break there was hardly anything to see. Antwerp was satisfied with a point and Anderlecht could not do better. Ten minutes before time, Mbokani gave the visitors the three points.
Because of this defeat, Anderlecht see the places that give the right to a European ticket sneaking farther away. Moreover, it already lost twice at home, something you pay heavily in Play-Off 1. It is likely to be tough weeks ...
