Westerlo vs Anderlecht Lineups and Last Match

Westerlo

Westerlo played out an action-packed ninety-plus minutes in their last league game away at Sporting Charleroi. Westerlo took the lead and led 1-0 at the interval but the home side turned the game in their favour with two second-half strikes. It looked like Westerlo had rescued a point when they equalised in stoppage-time only for Sporting Charleroi to score again right at the death to win the match 3-2.

Predicted Lineup – Bolat (GK), Reynolds, Bos, Rommens, Bayram, Piedfort, Haidara, Sydorchuk, Madsen, Matsuo & Stassin

Anderlecht

Anderlecht suffered an early setback at home to RWDM last time out but despite trailing 1-0 at the interval, the home side responded with an equaliser from the penalty spot in the seventy-fourth minute and then went on to win the game in stoppage-time to keep hot on the heels of the league leaders Union saint-Gilloise.

Predicted Lineup – Schmeichel (GK), Vertonghen, Augustinsson, Sardella, Debast, Delaney, Rits, Dreyer, Leoni, Flips & Dolberg

Player to Watch: Kasper Dolberg

Kasper Dolberg has been in fantastic form for Anderlecht this season, netting nine goals in fourteen league games since making the summer switch to the First Division A.

Dolberg showed so much promise as a youngster at Ajax but never really hit the heights he or anyone else expected following his move to Ligue 1 side Nice. Short spells at Sevilla and Hoffenheim failed to rediscover Dolberg's form but it looks like a move to Belgium has kick-started the 26-year-old's career again.

Dolberg has scored five goals in his last ten appearances for club and country so heads into Friday's match in good form.
