Three goals in five minutes for Anderlecht

Despite being 2-0 down with less than 10 minutes to go, the league-leaders Sporting Anderlecht managed to take all three points from their visit to Zulte Waregem. The first half was all but devoid of chances. However, the second half more than compensated for it with the spectators in Waregem’s Rainbow Stadium being treated to no fewer than five goals.

Although Anderlecht turned up the heat early in the second half, it was Zulte Waregem that scored after Anderlecht’s Wasilewski deflected Serwy’s shot past his own goalkeeper.

A disastrous blunder by the Anderlecht keeper Silvo Proto let Chevalier make it 2-0 on 65 minutes. The match seemed to be heading towards victory for the West Flemings.

Then two goals in three minutes from super sub Tom De Sutter sealed it for Anderlecht. Sporting Anderlecht tops the First Division with 35 points from 15 games.
