The only goal of the game scored by midfielder Kanu early at first quarter.
They rested lot of players to the game away to Ekranas, so lot of key players returns fresh tonight. Mbokani, Jovanovic, Wasilewski and Kouyate and Juhasz are all back and available, while Lukaku, Suarez and Vargas are still out long term. Anderlecht will be lined up offensively too, with their usual trio of Mbokani, Jovanovic and Gillet.
Cercle Brugge is respectable when playing at home, but they are coming from a very bad result and a very mediocre performance at home, while champions Anderlecht is in a great condition and wants all three points today to recover from the bad start.
