Anderlecht stands for at least one day alone in the lead of the Jupiler Pro League after a smooth victory against staartploeg Mouscron. Purple and white won in own home with 2-0 from the Henegouwers, and now consists of only twelve in twelve. The Sunday in the company of Club Bruges, Antwerp attracts. Next Sunday is Club Brugge – Anderlecht. Any downside for purple-and-white: the stupid red card of Ognjen Vranješ in the final.
The first move of Knowledge Musona was the surprise of chief Hein Vanhaezebrouck at Anderlecht, where the injured Cobbaut was replaced by Amuzu and also Milic again in the team came. Vanhaezebrouck praised in advance for the cameras the defence of the Mouscron as one of the best defences in the Jupiler Pro League. A bit of demagogy, of course. That was also evident in the first 45 minutes in the astrid park in which Anderlecht were the visitors to overwhelm and Mouscron-defense rattled along all sides.
Goalkeeper Werner had in the first twenty-minute rescue on a free-kick from Santini, a shot of Dimata and a volley of Vranjes. A little later came the Mouscron-keeper two times. First when Trebel from the half way line with a brilliant boogbal the top of the later earthquake. A minute later, when Dimata an assist, with the head of Santini about the empty goal moved.
Werner – in the first three matches probably the weakest goalkeeper of 1A – seemed to be geluksdagje to have, but it was after 37 minutes, again unnecessarily in the error on a free-kick from Trebel. All went to the ball first still on the dot because ref Laforge thought Godeau Dimata in the sixteen feet had touched. With the help of the VAR, this was rightly corrected to a free-kick on the edge of the sixteen metre. Binnengeknald by Trebel. With the help of Werner, who was behind his wall, stood up, and his right-hand corner all the way openliet. “One of the most beautiful 45 minutes of Anderlecht this season,” tweette chairman Marc Coucke during the rest. We could Coucke no wrong.
After the break, went to the foot of the accelerator at Anderlecht and that resulted immediately in the second, good odds for Mouscron. Fortunately for the purple and white was Didillon pal on a header of Frantzdy Pierrot and landed a deviated plane of Amallah on the roof of the goal.
Anderlecht survive a short dip and Dimata explained the match after 63 minutes in a decisive move with his fifth goal in four matches. The borrowed striker from Wolfsburg is the only attacker from Anderlecht that, until now, in every competitiematch a goal has been made, because the cannon of spitsbroeder Santini (seven goals) was silent against Mouscron. The Croat got in the last quarter of the match however a few nice chances.
But still, it was especially Ognjen Vranješ that the victory of Anderlecht in the final stage, a black edge is concerned. The burly Bosnian schoffelde in the 80th minute, completely unnecessary Selim Amallah with both feet down on the half way line. A justified red card was his punishment. Probably miss Vranješ also clash with Club Bruges next Sunday.
It is for the first time since 2009 that Anderlecht with four wins in a row to the season begins.
