GAMES Anderlecht have lost 1-3 to Standard. Anderlecht was the better team, but Standard was deadly efficient.
Anderlecht was a lot better in the first half. Morioka, Markovic and Teodorczyk had imposed opportunities. Sels remained unemployed before the break. 0-0 halfway.
Anderlecht had to get a penalty kick halfway through the first half after a firm push in the back of Morioka. But Anderlecht did not get it.
Shortly after the break, Standard struck a first time. After a corner from Anderlecht, Edmilson started a long run. Gerkens had to make a professional fault, but he didn't Najar defended badly, Sels might have caught Edmilson's shot. 0-1.
Five minutes later, it was 0-2. Emond worked a cross from Edmilson against the nets. Two minutes later, Emond was even close to 0-3.
After that it was again all Anderlecht. After a confused phase, Gerkens kicked the ball against the ropes through Teodorczyk's foot.
Anderlecht kept insisting and had chances on the equalizer, but Edmilson eventually turned off the light. Again after a purple-white corner. Najar did not look good again. 1-3.
Four opportunities, three goals. Two times after a Anderlecht corner. Standard makes it so painfully clear what Hein says for weeks. "We lack efficiency."
