Anderlecht and Union still get a boost in the title race

Anderlecht and Union still get a boost in the title race

For both Anderlecht and Union, a win on Sunday alone is enough to stay in contention for the national title. So the people of Brussels know what to do against Antwerp and KRC Genk. Their limited chances increased slightly on Monday.

In their duel, both the Limberger and the First took some additional damage. For example, in Genk, Carlos Cuesta and Madjid Sadiq both received their third yellow card in these play-off matches, meaning they are on the bench at Dudenpark.

Genk and Antwerp hit

A big loss for Domenico Olivieri, who is left with only Mark McKenzie at centre-back. So we have to wait and see what solution he comes up with. However, it seems that Genk are almost forced to switch to the classic four-man defense again.

Antwerp is once again plagued by injuries. Vincent Janssen’s season is over, and this could also be the case for Anthony Valencia, Kobe Corbani, Chidera Ijok, Djilly Bataille and Soumela Koulibaly. Mark van Bommel can only hope to get those last two back.

Circle in full force

To make matters worse, Richie De Laet also withdrew. After the defeat at Segeka Stadium, nothing is at stake for the outgoing national champions but honour, although it will not be easy to beat Bossoi’s side. Genk is still competing for fourth place.

She hopes to stay ahead of Circle, which therefore has some extra motivation to keep her rival away from the title. Although many of the key figures were on the brink, Miron Muslić could rely on almost all of his pawns. None of the title claimants themselves have been suspended.
