GAMES In the eve, Anderlecht will meet in their own stadium leader Racing Genk. The Limburgers are working on a strong season, but are not doing that well in the last few weeks. Can the young Anderlecht break the leader?
Under the lead of his midfield Berge - Pozuelo - Malinovsky and attackers Trossard and Samatta, Genk has been ruling the competition and winning in the Europa League since July. The last month, however, it is going less well with just one win in seven duels. The last five games Genk could no longer win. On Thursday, it gave Anderlecht-wise (two goals in three minutes) away a 0-2-lead against Malmö.
At Anderlecht, Hein Vanhaezebrouck will change his team thoroughly after the meager draw against Trnava. Youngsters Saelemaekers, Sambi Lokonga, Amuzu and perhaps also Verschaeren return to the starting eleven. Santini and Najar might also be ready for play. Dimata and Kums train again, but their employability remains uncertain.
