INTERVIEWS Hein Vanhaezebrouck is vigilant about tonight's game. Standard is on the right track after their bad season start and the coach expects a difficult game against the Rouches. Anderlecht does have the home advantage, and that is what the coach sees as a surplus.
"We immediately have a strong opponent, but we have the home advantage so we can not complain. There were easier teams, but in the cup you have to beat every team," Vanhaezebrouck says.
"Standard defends well, plays solidly and with a lot of conviction. And they have players who can make the difference with their individual qualities. They are also candidates for play-off 1. Besides, they will not just let the cup go. After all, there is a ticket to the Europa League groups to win," the coach continues.
