Belgian Pro League battle: RAFC - RSC Anderlecht


RAFC is well on its way to prove that it belongs firmly among the greats of Belgian football. The Golden Palace-sponsored team is currently chasing leader Club Bruges from a second position, although it needs a win to be sure that it stays in that place. The opposition of the weekend, RSC Anderlecht, has left a shaky impression to say the least, but did manage to beat title defender KRC Genk last time around. The record champion will be desperately looking for another win, so this is shaping up to be a thrilling encounter!

RAFC – RSC Anderlecht (Friday December 27, 8.30 p.m.)

RAFC saw its Pro League efforts rewarded with a solid second place, although the gap with runaway leader Club Bruges is 8 points wide at the moment. Breathing down The Great Old’s neck, we find KAA Gent, who is third in the league at 36 points, 2 points shy of RAFC. The Golden Palace-sponsored side owes a big part of its success to Dieumerci Mbokani: he Congolese striker seems in the form of his life, and is top scorer with 14 goals so far in the Belgian Pro League. Expect him to make a difference once more!

Meanwhile, RSC Anderlecht is stuck in 10th-place football limbo and still searching far and wide for a form that can put its current line-up on the map as a team to be reckoned with. The record champions high-profile signings could finally be paying off after Dutchman Michel Vlap netted twice against KRC Genk, helped by astounding work from team leader Vincent Kompany. If Anderlecht has really found its groove, RAFC could be in for a long night at the Bosuil stadium…
