Sporting Anderlecht won 1-2 on the pitch at Zulte Waregem on Friday opening the 15th day of Jupiler Pro League. At the end of the first leg of the competition, the Brussels, tenths but tied with Genk (8th) and Mouscron (9th), are provisionally only two units of the sixth and final qualifying place for the playoffs 1 occupied by their opponent of the day.
Anderlecht remained on six games without defeat. The confidence garnered by Franky Vercauteren's troops was felt at the beginning of the debates. On the first action of the match, Nacer Chadli deceived, in fact, the vigilance of Sammy Bossut after only four minutes of play. The Red Devil was close to doubling the stake in the 26th, but his point-blank shot was pushed back on his line by Bossut.
In the second half, Zulte Waregem striker Cyle Larin took advantage of a loss of ball at the entrance of his area of Peter Zulj, ridden in the game three minutes earlier, to equalize less than fifteen minutes of the term (76). Anderlecht, however, did not doubt long since Kemar Roofe (82) restored the advantage to the Mallow and White six minutes later.
