They did it, they did it again, and they continue to do it! Our Unionists overcame neighbors Anderlecht by a goal to nil!
After only ten minutes, a well-planned free-kick allowed Casper Nielsen to open up the scoring with a deflected shot from just outside the box. Our Unionists had the game in the palms of their hands but Anderlecht did not make it easy. Van Crombrugge refused to concede any more goals and our Anthony Moris pulled off a magnificent save to deny the ‘mauves’ on their only real chance of the match.
At the opposite end of the pitch, Dante Vanzeir sped towards the goal, as Undav attempted a shot from the right however he only found Van Crombrugge in his path.
Union stayed strong and composed and did not give in to the Anderlecht pressure to secure the win.
Next week, we are going to Antwerp for matchday 26 of the championship!
