Anderlecht is no longer in the UefaCup. After a 3-0-defeat a week ago, Anderlecht won with 2-0.
The Mauves were fighting bravely. Zitka was playing and Seol and Mornar on were on the bench, RSCA had nothing to lose.
Anderlecht attacked a lot, but the Greeks made just enough fouls to keep the pace low.
Two large chances were created by Anderlecht in the first half: Aruna's weak shot was saved by Nikopolidis. The goalkeeper also saved a nice header of Ilic.
After the break, the Mauves pushed forward. 20 Minutes before time, Jestrovic scored the 1-0. A bit later, "Jestrogoal" doubled the score in a rebound (after a header of Mornar). Anderlecht put pressure on the Greeks and they almost scored the 3-0. Unfortunatly, Lady Fortuna was on the Greek side today.
