Player to watch: Theo Leoni

Anderlecht's Anders Dreyer found the net when these teams met a few days ago, extending his scoring streak against Cercle Brugge to three games. However, he was injured just a couple of minutes after his goal, and will be unavailable for this clash.

In Dreyer's absence, it should be worth keeping an eye on Theo Leoni. The 24-year-old put up a solid performance in the reverse fixture, as his two goals helped Anderlecht cruised through a 3-0 victory.

Leoni will look to score in back-to-back games for the first time this year.
