GAMES Anderlecht lost its first game of the preparation period. In Neerpede, the purple and white lost with 0-1 against STVV. Felice Mazzu had his team play in a 3-5-2 formation and gave 23 players playing time. 16 of them are younger than 23.
Barely three days after the first training session, the first friendly game followed. Newcomers Abdulrazak and Angulo did not play and Gomez, Kana and Trebel were also absent. A lot of youngsters got their chance. One of them was Amando Lapage, the grandson of Paul Van Himst. After twenty minutes he deviated a corner unfortunately into his own goal.
The young Anderlecht had to acknowledge their superiority to STVV, which had been training again since June 7. Only after 40 minutes, purple-white got a first chance through Stassin. After the break, Anderlecht played better soccer. Vlap in particular was very eager. His free kick against the bar was the best opportunity for purple-white.
Next Saturday, Anderlecht plays its next match. Roda JC will be the opponent.
