How will the USMNT perform in the Copa América?
3 and out, baby!
Quarterfinal heartbreak
Reach the semis, but can't take the next step
Loss in the final - it's the 2009 Confed Cup all over again!
Champions on home soil!
MICHAEL ADUBATO - Friday, September 17, 2010
After last night's 3-1 beating by Zenit St. Petersburg in Europa League action, Anderlecht will return to league action this weekend when KVK Kortrijk arrives in the Belgian capital.

Sacha Kljestan will hope to take to the field for the Sunday evening kick-off after missing out against the Russians. The American trained with the team but was left off the roster with the team stating that he was suffering from a sprained ankle.

Definitely missing for les Mauves however will be long term absences Tom De Sutter with his ankle injury and the sorely missed Polish defender Marcin Wasilewski. Brazilian midfielder Kanu will also miss the contest due to a leg injury of his own.

For the visitors, of their 23 core players there are only two injuries. Midfielder Brecht Dejaeghere is out with a broken collarbone, while Wouter Vrancken continues to recover from a long term injury. Belgian born Moroccan international Chemcedine El Araichi picked up a thigh injury but has been training and should be fully fit to face les Mauves. Sven Kums however, will be watching from the stands as he serves a suspension.

Anderlecht still sit in the second spot, just a pair of points behind the leaders Racing Genk. Kortrijk are close behind as well, just a point behind the Belgian champions.
