Team Information, Preview, and Antwerp vs Anderlecht Lineups

Antwerp

The home team bowed out of the Champions League earlier this week with a surprising victory over Barcelona and now the team coached by Mark van Bommel can fully focus on defending their domestic crown.

owever, that might be a difficult thing to accomplish as Antwerp are already 11 points behind the leaders Union Saint-Gilloise. A long injury list at the club includes Michel Balikwisha, Bjorn Engels, Jacob Ondrejka, Anthony Valencia, and Davino Verhulst.

Predicted lineup: Butez, Wijndal, Coulibaly, Alderweireld, De Laet, Yusuf, Keita, Vermeeren, Ejuke, Kerk, Janssen.

Anderlecht

There is a sentiment that Anderlecht could find themselves at the top of the league soon enough, even though they are lagging behind Union SG at the moment.

On the other hand, the guest side is amid an eight-match undefeated run, which will show that the squad is in good spirits ahead of the derby match. Thorgan Hazard is expected to miss the game due to health issues.

Predicted lineup: Schmeichel, Vertonghen, Augustinsson, Debast, Sardella, Rits, Delaney, Stroeykens, Dolberg, Dreyer, Verschaeren.

Player to Watch: Anders Dreyer

The Danish winger has been in terrific form this season for Anderlecht, leading the team in scoring with 11 league goals while making 15 appearances. He added a couple of assists to his record as well.

Dreyer joined Anderlecht during the January transfer window from FC Midtjylland and made sure his impact was felt immediately at the famous Belgian club.

Dreyer started his career at Esbjerg and even though he is only 25 years old, he already moved through a lot of clubs. Dreyer has been capped by the Danish national team on two occasions.
