PREVIEW: ANDERLECHT - GENT
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
MICHAEL ADUBATO - Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Returning from the winter break, Sacha Kljestan and Anderlecht will welcome KAA Gent to Brussels for the second leg of this Belgian Cup quarter final match-up.

The American's team has been training in Turkey and beat Heracles Amelo 4-2 in a friendly game while there.

Now that they're back home however, they'll be looking to clinch a spot in the Cup semi-finals after coming out of the away leg with a 1-1 tie where Milan Jovanovic's early goal was cancelled out by MBoyo Ilombe five minutes later.

Kljestan should be tucked into the midfield for les Mauves but his co-central midfielder, Lucas Biglia has a sick note from his doctor as the Argentinian is trying to force a trade out of Brussels before the end of the month.

Guillaume Gillet will also miss out after appealing a three-game suspension that was successful and reduced to just one game.

The Buffaloes of Gent, Mikkel Diskerud's former employees, are not reporting any absentees so will be at full strength.

Gent has also just picked up a loan signing in Renato Neto from Sporting Lisbon, so the young Brazilian could feature against the reigning Belgian champions.

The Belgian Cup Final will be played on May 9 at the King Baudoin Stadium in the Belgian capital.

The USMNT classic with Mexico was a tale of two halves, with the U.S. drawing 2-2 with Mexico.
