Player to watch – Kasper Dolberg

Dolberg has impressed for Anderle3cht this season, netting 11 goals in the First Division A alone. The Danish international has scored the first goal on eight occasions for Anderlecht so far, making him a key player for the squad.

The Danish contingent each playing their part

Along with Dolberg, Anderlecht have brought in Anders Dreyer, Kasper Schmeichel and Thomas Delaney as part of their Danish invasion all of which have been overseen by the club's Danish manager Brian Riemer. The Danish manager and players have helped propel Anderlecht back to the top end of Belgian football but can they topple Union Saint-Gillise this season?
