GAMES No Champions League tonight, but the Belgian Cup. In the eighth final, Standard visits the Constant Vanden Stock stadium. Coach Hein Vanhaezebrouck wants to win the cup, but may leave some players at rest.
Sven Kums was replaced after 50 minutes on Sunday due to an injury, but it has cured already. Still, he will probably start on the bench. Henry Onyekuru also has to fear for his place. Vanhaezebrouck was unhappy about his many failed actions against Kortrijk. In defense Matz Sels and Kara Mbodj will probably return in the team.
Opponent Standard has to play without his star Paul-José Mpoku, who is suspended. Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa gets some rest, allowing Jean-François Gillet to play again. Two years ago, in the Vanden Stock stadium he stopped three penalties in one game.
The game between Anderlecht and Standard can be watched live on Play Sports and Club RTL. The stadium is completely sold out.
