INTERVIEWS Bart Verbruggen, surely fantastic what he showed again in the Estadio de la Ceramica. He guided RSC Anderlecht to the quarterfinals of the Conference League with a whole series of saves. His save in the first minutes of the second half was fabulous.

For that famous save, Verbruggen drew the mustard from Cercle Brugge's goalkeeper.
"Last weekend he made the same save against us and I'm glad I managed it too. I had to catch that ball because I had given away the rebound myself."

But Verbruggen doesn't want to keep all the praise to himself: "Everyone threw their full body into the defensive battle, fantastic to be part of that as a goalkeeper. The second half we had more control of the game. Of that save in the last minutes I don't remember much myself, my foot was just able to push the ball away, a natural reflex to the situation."

"The team did a very good defensive performance."
