GAMES Anderlecht and Union are the last two clubs to compete for a place in the 1 / 8th finals of the Belgian Cup. Hein Vanhaezebrouck gives captain Adrien Trebel some rest and can not count on Zakaria Bakkali and James Lawrence.


Bakkali is still having some problems with the hip, while Lawrence has not recovered from the concussion he sustained two weeks ago. Vanhaezebrouck gives next to Trebel, who is replaced by Sven Kums, some other players some rest. Frank Boeckx, Hannes Delcroix, Dennis Appiah and Kenny Saief can hope for a starting place.

Union is currently third in the first division B. Striker Youssoufou Niakaté scored eight times in seven games. The South African Percy Tau is also someone to keep an eye on. Brighton paid 3.5 million euros this summer for the 24-year-old striker, but immediately sent hem on loan it to Union.
