GAMES As expected, Anderlecht will appeal against the Disciplinary Council's decision to replay the match against Racing Genk. Purple-White announced today that it is starting two procedures: one at the Evocation Commission and one at the BAS.

"In the interest of Belgian soccer, we want clarity and a final decision as soon as possible," Anderlecht wrote on its website. "This is the only way to guarantee the proper further course of the league and an orderly start to the playoffs."

"If we were to exhaust all our legal means, we could certainly drag the matter out until May. But then we plunge the course of the Jupiler Pro League further into chaos. The Belgian league has already lost enough prestige because of this case."

"It remains our firm belief that an error by the arbitration should never lead to the replay of a match. Should this decision by the Disciplinary Council for Professional Football stand, it opens the door to a series of complaints that would seriously jeopardize the integrity of our leagues."

"So RSCA owes it to itself and to Belgian soccer to challenge this decision."
