Venue: Stade Maurice Dufrasne
Anderlecht head to Stade Maurice Dufrasne on Sunday for the Jupiler League clash with hosts Standard Liege.
Standard Liege are counted amongst the worst in the Belgian top flight especially so during the last season. The last time around the team had finished in a bottom-half position of the league table, and all along they had let in goals in huge numbers.
They had conceded a lot of goals this season too. However, their performance this season doesn’t even look similar with the previous. Liege is currently placed at 5th spot in the league standings.
They have also managed to win four of their past five league games. A total of 12 points bagged from those victories helped them climb to 5th place.
Meanwhile, Anderlecht’s current run is without any consistency to speak of. They are ninth in the points table with five wins and the same number of losses in 11 games.
It is worth mentioning about their attacking line since they have scored 7 goals in their last 4 league fixtures. Although those performances were against teams in the bottom half, their attacking side have generally offered decent performances throughout the season.
