Although Anderlecht had the lead with 0:2 on Thursday evening away to Kortrijk, they were limited to the draw and they lost the last hopes they had to conquer the title. Now even the second position which leads to the Champions League qualifiers is in danger, as they have to win against Gent and Club Brugge not to win against Kortrijk.
There was some rumors during the recent days that the relationship between several players of Anderlecht was not good, but their coach denied everything and stated that there is no other problem excpet dissapointment by the recent results. Anyway, the only target left is to conquer the second place and everything has to start with a win over Gent. Good news for Anderlecht as key defender Chancel Mbemba (27 games, 1 goal) is back to the main eleven after suspension. Attacking midfielder Marko Marin (6 games), right winger Ibrahima Conte (24 games, 2 goals) and secondary striker Matias Suarez (13 games, 4 goals) remain sidelined.
Gent won the title for the first time to their long history with a win at home against Standard Liege (2:0). Their game was very anxious and did not shown some good football, but finally they got what he wanted, scoring a goal in each half.
Now Gent is in a period of relax and celebrations, that’s why their coach decided to rest many key players today.
Key striker and top scorer of Gent Laurent Depoitre (35 games, 13 goals), main right back Rafinha (19 games, 1 goal), main left back Nana Asare (38 games), key defender Lasse Nielsen (26 games, 2 goals), main secondary striker Moses Simon (17 games, 7 goals), key midfielder and captain of the team Sven Kums (26 games, 1 goal) and main right winger Danijel Milicevic (33 games, 9 goals) are all out of the squad.
Only Anderlecht is interested for the outcome of this game, while Gent will play with many new faces in their main eleven, so I do not think that Anderlecht will face problems to take all three points.
