Racing Genk has an excellent case done on Super Sunday. The won – after a salt-free party – with 0-1 Anderlecht after a beautiful impression of Pozuelo. Genk strengthens as his leadership position, while Anderlecht and the role solve.
What a poor first half of Anderlecht and Racing Genk. Both teams are locks Super Sunday – our apologies to the fans of Eupen and Waasland-Beveren – but the first half was a little super.
Hein Vanhaezebrouck threw his troops after the disappointing game against Trnava, not more than rightly. Of Musona, Morioka and appiah notes, there was even no more place in the selection, in which Hein a place for Verschaeren and Doku. Philippe Clement chose for his type-eleven.
Both teams are in a difficult period – 7/15 for Anderlecht, 6/15 for Racing Genk and could with the three points a good thing to do. Anderlecht showed the most initiative, but was barely beyond sterile possession and some half chances for Makarenko, Amuzu and on the stroke of rest the best for Santini. Vukovic was always pal. Vanhaezebrouck had his pawns placed in a 3-5-2, with Kums as a number ten and Amuzu and Saelemaekers on the flanks. But openings were they so barely, the first half seemed more like a continuation of the world CHAMPIONSHIP of chess last week.
On the other side was even sadder: Genk threatened only through two free-kicks of Malinovskyi and a shot of the same Oekraïner. But also Didillon could those balls pretty quickly address.
Admittedly, it was not easy to play football on the turf in the Astridpark. More than one player slipped, and certainly Bakkali had it difficult with his short rotation.

The second half started the same as the first: Anderlecht had the most possession of the ball, but played too sterile and without too much depth. Racing Genk had it all committed, and that of Anderlecht began to be more excited about referee Bram Van Driessche. Which had already been lavish with yellow waved for the Anderlecht-players and got the whole stadium to themselves when Genk – in their eyes – allowed to make mistakes without be penalized.
Both coaches decided on the pm to intervene: Clement replaced the pale Samatta by Gano, and at Anderlecht if the sixteen-year-old Doku are thuisdebuut – instead of Bakkali, after his good subbing on STVV last week.
Just at the moment that the competition is completely risked bleeding to death, was there Pozuelo as a devil in a box: he devieerde a cross from Berge smart in purpose. A moment later, Gano’s victory even completely safe, but he blasted over.
Vanhaezebrouck realized that Anderlecht attacking under age was, and opted for the 17-year-old Yari Verschaeren to the openings. That was still the best chance for Anderlecht at the same height after the manipulation in the Genk defence, but his shot stranded on the leg of Vukovic.
