MICHAEL ADUBATO - Friday, October 29, 2010
After a close call in Thursday night's Belgian Cup action, Anderlecht will return to league action Sunday night when they travel to Genk to take on the current league leaders.

American Sacha Kljestan will hope to continue taking the field after taking part in the team's last three games following an absence from the team for a couple months. The ex-Chivas USA man is expected to start for Les Mauves but will at least find a seat on the bench at the Cristal Arena. Lucas Biglia will miss the action due to a hamstring tear that he picked up in Thursday's game. Olivier Deschacht is also out after undergoing ankle surgery.

For Racing Genk Jo„o Carlos may miss out after picking up an injury against Sporting Charleroi last weekend. Czech left back Pudil DaniŽl came off early in the game as well still feeling the effects from a knock against Gent the week before. He'll be assessed prior to kick-off.

Genk's danger man is Marvin Ogunjimi who made his debut for the Belgian national team last month and scored three goals in two games coming off the bench.

The Flemish team is flying high at the moment on 29 points after 12 games, while Anderlecht holds down the second spot and will be looking to close the five point gap between the two sides.
