They parted in a 1-1 split and it was Anderlecht who opened the scoring on Wednesday. This Saturday night, it was Genk who shook the nets first via Onuachu. A goal deserved so much Genk dominates at the start of the meeting. Ito and Onuachu are untenable and it is deserved.
However, Anderlecht will come back to the mark in the 31st. Nmecha scoring his 15th goal of the season on a Verschaeren assist. 1-1 so that’s the score at the break, but Genk got some chances, especially through Thorstvedt and Heynen.
In the second half, it was Genk who proved to be the most dangerous again, without increasing the score (Ito and Heynen). Among the visited, it is necessary to count on Yari Verschaeren to bring the danger, but in vain.
Anderlecht still pushed in the last 20 minutes, but failed to score a second goal. Worse, it is Genk who will ultimately win. On a free kick given by Bongonda, Dessers mounted to the game gives the victory to his team. Despite a superb chance from Larsen at the end of the game, Anderlecht lost and saw second place in the league permanently withdraw.
