PREVIEW: GENT - ANDERLECHT
Anderlecht will travel to fellow Europa League competitors KAA Gent for a Sunday afternoon kick-off at Jules Ottenstadion.
American midfielder Sacha Kljestan played the full 90 minutes for Les Mauves in their midweek 1-0 loss to Westerlo and will be expected to see playing time again especially with the injury woes that Coach Ariel Jacobs is facing. Goalkeeper Silvio Proto has picked up a shoulder injury and is not certain of playing this weekend. Jonathan Legear is suffering from a back problem, while Roland Juhasz may be rested again due to the amount of games he has been involved in already this season. Also doubtful are team captain Olivier Deschacht, Argentinian midfielder Lucas Biglia and Moroccan international Mbark Boussoufa.
There are no reports coming out of Gent at this time regarding injury reports.
The last time out in league action Anderlecht drew 2-2 with Club Brugge, while the Buffaloes overcame the other Brugge team, Cercle, by a 1-0 scoreline.
