Anderlecht have won the game against Zulte Waregem, thanks to a goal of Wilhelmsson 4 minutes before time. The Mauves came one goal behind, but returned through Kompany late in the first half.


Anderlecht had a lot of difficulties in Waregem. In the first 15 minutes, the Mauves pushed the home side back, but they slowly restored the balance in the game. Zulte had a few good chances and scored the opener via Sergeant. His hard shot went past Proto in the goal: 1-0.

Anderlecht were under pressure and couldn't create any chance. So the equaliser of Kompany was a gift from above. He could score in the rebound on Deschacht's shot.

In the second half, Anderlecht were the better side, but several efforts were unsuccessful. Four minutes before time, Wilhelmsson made the winner after a nice attack via Iachtchouk and Zetterberg: 1-2.

In stoppage time, a huge blunder in the Mauve defense gave Zulte the ideal opportunity to equalise, but they missed.
