GAMES Anderlecht ended the training camp in Horst, the Netherlands, with a 2-0 win against Helmond Sport from the Second Division in the Netherlands. Sadiki and Ait El Hadj took care of the goals. At half-time, the purple and white were leading 1-0.
The match started with a low pace. On the quarter-hour mark, Esposito rounded off a fine attack, but the goal was disallowed because of offside. On the half hour a goal from Van Keilegom was disallowed for the same reason. Eight minutes before half time the goal was scored after all. Sadiki scored from a corner.
After the break Mazzu sent eleven other playeres into the field. Five minutes later Debast hit the bar and Amuzu did the same. Fifteen minutes before the end, Lion missed the chance to equalize. He came alone in front of Van Crombrugge, but the Anderlecht-goalie was right there. Ten minutes before the end, Ait El Hadj decided the match by taking advantage of Mistrafovic's loss.
This way, Anderlecht wins its fourth match in a row. In those four matches, Anderlecht only scored one goal, a penalty kick that is. Saturday, against Lyon, is the last preparation match before the new season.
