Anderlecht Fans will be delighted to see their team take on Slavia Praha at home on Thursday after the away victory against them last week.
Anderlecht hit Slavia for 3-0 last week, they will have the luxury of playing them at home this week. Idrissa broke he deadlock in 50th minutes of the game, later Teodorczyk and S.Hanni made it 3-0 in 62nd and 72nd minutes respectively. The Belgian side needs a draw or at least try not to conceded up to 3 goals should they lose.
Slavia Praha needs a miracle or more than a miracle as they travel to Belgium, having been thumped 3-0 at home. They held on till the 50th minute, when their opponents ran riot on them scoring 3 goals in 22 minutes. They now need not just a win, but a win with 4 goal margin to qualify them for the next round.
