In the Belgian Super Cup, which pitted the league champions, Anderlecht, against the Belgian Cup winners, Genk, it was Sacha Kljestan and the champions who picked up the first silverware of the season.
American midfielder, Kljestan, went the full 90 in the 1 - 0 victory where youngster Massimo Bruno netted the only goal of the afternoon. The young Belgian's strike came three minutes into first half stoppage time. The assist came from Ivorian striker Gohi Bi Cynac.
The Super Cup is the Belgian kick-off to the new season and will give les Mauves a big psychological boost when they start their defense of the title next Sunday when they host Sporting Lokeren.
