GAMES Anderlecht seemed to have given the new boss Marc Coucke a nice welcome. Against, a very weak, Mouscron purple-white scored four times in an hour. Lukasz Teodorczyk even managed a hattrick. But in the final half hour, Anderlecht almost gave away a certain victory, as the visitors scored three times in twenty minutes.
Under the eye of new boss Marc Coucke, Anderlecht took the initiative from the kick-off. Mouscron had to stay on its own half and the first chance for Anderlecht followed after eleven minutes. Saief and Gerkens did not get the ball between the posts.
Halfway through the first half Morioka succeeded. Teodorczyk won the air duel, Gerkens passed well and the Japanese scored his first goal in purple-white. After the goal, the game was stopped several times for injury treatments from Mohammed, Saief and Obradovic. We were on our way to a 1-0 at halftime until Galitsios made Morioka fall: penalty. Teodorczyk put himself behind the ball and kicked hard in the middle. After Hanni, Morioka and Saief missed, the Pool scored the first eleven meters of the Purple-White season. With 2-0 we went into halftime.
The goal gave Teodorczyk confidence, because around the hour he let the nets vibrate twice again. First he headed a measured cross from Saief, and later he finished handsome preparatory work by Gerkens. 4-0 and the game seemed to be played. In between, Markovic could make his debut.
Slightly past halfway through the second half, Mouscron suddenly stood up. In three minutes time, Les Hurlus scored twice via Awoniyi and Van Durmen. Mézague scored the 4-3 six minutes before time. In the injury time, Morioka put the 5-3 final score on the board after a mistake goalkeeper Bailly.
