Take advantage of Antwerp, Ghent and Charleroi losing points and watch in a relaxed way tomorrow as Club Brugge and Union take each other’s points. This is what the ideal scenario looked like in Vincent Kompany’s head.
After 25 minutes, that plan was already badly damaged. Hoedt, who had missed a big opportunity before, defeated the broken Matondo just before sixteen. After the VAR intervened, the yellow turned red and Anderlecht suddenly stood up with scores.
Cerkel sensed his opportunity and pushed Anderlecht back. When the home team also started playing unnecessarily complicated football, Matondo almost took the opportunity, but van Cromburg saved it. The goalkeeper did it again when the Welshman reappeared in front of him a few minutes later.
Anderlecht easily kept home in the second half, until a flash from Matondo made the difference more than 20 minutes from the end. Cut from the inside and with a superb shot from outside the sixteen, Welshman Van Cromburg left without a chance.
The spring was broken with Purple & White and in the final phase the home team had to take another hit. Matondo targeted the post initially, but Kanoute managed to score at the start of the second half. And so Cercle continues his lead, with Anderlecht ending a streak of 9 undefeated matches.
