OTHER Anderlecht will play a gala match in the Estadio da Luz against Benfica tonight at 9.30 pm Belgian time. The Purple & White traveled to Portugal yesterday. Kara Mbodj and Adrien Trebel, who have to leave, didn't get on the plane. Luka Adzic is allowed to come.
Adzic did not make the A-team's game selection once last season, but is keen to prove himself to Vincent Kompany. For example, he returned from holiday a week faster on his own initiative.
The game against Benfica comes too early for new players Samir Nasri and Philippe Sandler. They may debut against AZ on Saturday. After the match against Benfica, Anderlecht will travel to the Netherlands for a short training camp that will be concluded with a match against AZ. This duel also takes place behind closed doors.
Only after next Wednesday's game against OFI Crete Kompany will slim down his selection.
