Anderlecht as well as Kortrijk are teams with prospects of a top-tier finish in the Belgian top flight this season. They are in great form at the moment, and are scoring goals at an impressive rate. 

And this same trend can be seen in previous h2h encounters as well. 

As these two squads battle it out for a spot in the next round of the Cup, expect fireworks on either side of the pitch. A high-scoring affair seems the likely outcome at the Lotto Park.
