INJURIES Isaac Kiese Thelin did not travel to Hamburg due to a minor injury. There is nothing behind the fact that Yari Verschaeren and Jeremy Doku did not travel to Germany. The two get some rest.
Thelin is currently the first choice as a deep striker. That is why Anderlecht don't want to take a risk with him. That despite his absence Ivan Santini and Mohammed Dauda do not travel to Hamburg is striking. Anderlecht hopes to sell Santini to Trabzonspor and Kompany does not seem to count on Dauda either. Pieter Gerkens may therefore play a central role in the attack.
