Anderlecht have beaten GBA with a 3-1 score. That way, the Mauves keep on the first position with 9 points out of 3 games. Though Anderlecht had a lot of trouble with the reinforced GBA defense and the fast counter-attacks.

Dosumnu opened the score after 11 minutes of play. He could dribble easily throught the Anderlecht defense and scored a nice goal: 0-1. The Mauves were impressed and couldn't react. Also playmaker Zetterberg was put under a lot of pressure by the opponent's midfield.

A first chance came after 20 minutes of play with a free kick. Besides that, nothing spectacular happened... until 5 minutes before the break. Jestrovic broke through the defense on a pass of Vanden Borre and scored the equaliser. A few minutes later, Goor was pulled down in the box and again Jestrovic converted the penalty.

In the second half, Anderlecht were lucky when Kompany caused a clear penalty on Dosumnu, but the referee seemed to have missed it. Right before that, Zitka had prevented Anderlecht from taking a goal.

Zetterberg was then replaced by Zewlakow. Also Jestrovic was swapped for Mbo Mpenza who immediatly scored the 3-1. Beerschot player Lolo got a red card and finally Delorge came in play. He had a good chance on scoring, but Luciano saved. The last effort was for Dosumnu, who hit the post.
