GAMES Kemar Lawrence scored the 0-2 for RSC Anderlecht. His first goal for Purple & White. Although they were not talking about that at Standard, according to them, Lawrence should not have been on the pitch after five minutes of the game.
Lawrence tackled Mehdi Carcela after two minutes. Referee Erik Lambrechts gave him a yellow card and the VAR also agreed with this judgment. At Standard they thought that was not possible, this was red.
Tim Pots agrees with Lambrechts' decision. "Lawrence's heel still touches the ground, which reduces the impact. That makes the chance of an injury a little smaller. The linesmen were also perfectly placed to judge the action. Yellow was the right decision here."
