The second half didn't bring anything better. Lokeren even took the lead thanks to a goal of Olivier Deschacht. The former Anderlecht defender cheered for a brief moment, but then rapidly apologised to the Anderlecht fans. The fans appreciated Deschacht's effort and goal and gave him a standing ovation. Dimata rapidly equalised though and had another excellent effort to bring Anderlecht ahead. His header ended on the crossbar though. Besides that, the Mauves never came close to a goal.
