Anderlecht qualified for the 3rd round of the Uefa-Cup after beating Midtjylland with 0-3. The game started bad for the Mauves. Tihinen lightly pulled the shirt of Kristensen and the referee gave a penalty.

Goalkeeper Skov-Jensen took the penalty, but Zitka saved.
Five minutes later, Anderlecht scored out of their first chance. De Bilde took a corner kick, De Boeck headed the ball to Seol and he scored: 0-1. The Mauves kept on pushing and got a few chances through Seol, Baseggio and Vanderhaeghe.
After that, the Mauves dropped the pace. Zitka had to save a good shot of Skriver. After 40 minutes, RSCA came close to 0-2, but Bilde, Seol and Aruna missed.

Midtjylland started well on 2nd half, but Zitka held them from the equaliser. Anderlecht immediatly reacted, and Seol scored 0-2, but the referee noticed his hands-ball, preciding the goal. 2 minutes later, Crasson's shot went over the bar.
Half an hour before time, Jestrovic doubled the score. Aruna even scored 0-3.
