Anderlecht lost 2 points again. This time the Belgian champion obtained a 3-3 draw against Genk. At half time, the score was 1-2 and this was a correct projection of the truth. The Mauves defense was caught several times on big mistakes.
Crasson and Ilic played central, Hendrikx on the left wing and Van Hout on the right.
Soon, it became clear that this wasn't a good combination. In the first minute, De Wilde saw a ball hitting the post and 5 minutes later, Dagano (who was left completely free) scored the 0-1.
Anderlecht tried to strike back, but they couldn't come to one single good chance. Then suddenly Van Hout equalised with a header (1-1).
Genk played well and they pushed Anderlecht back. They scored the 1-2 (offside?) again through Dagano. A deserved lead for Racing, thanks to a failing Anderlecht defence.
During the pause, Anthuenis made changes in the defense and the almost invisible Seol was replaced by Stoica, who was recovered from an injury right in time to play.
The changes seemed to have some success. The Mauves put some pressure on Genk and created some good chances. Aruna tried to force himself through the defense but he couldn't get passed his defender. Also De Bilde had problems with the strong Genk defenders.
It was Hendrikx who brought Anderlecht back. He kicked the 2-2 passed Moons after 15 minutes.
Anderlecht kept pushing forward but there weren't that much good chances. It was Yves Vanderhaeghe we brought Anderlecht at the lead, when he scored the 3-2 after a mistake of Moons (goalkeeper Genk).
By the end of the game, the visitors tried to equalise and they succeeded when Ilic pulled down one of their players and Thijs scored the penalty. That way, the Brussels club lost points for the second time in this season.
