MICHAEL ADUBATO - Friday, March 11, 2011
In this penultimate game of the regular season, Anderlecht have to travel to the German-speaking part of the country as they take on Eupen, who will be up for it as they try to fight off relegation.

Sacha Kljestan will be hoping to get the nod for the Belgian champions as coach Ariel Jacobs' will be without a few key players. Argentinian Matias Suarez has damaged some ligaments in his knee and is expected to be out for several weeks. Lucas Biglia also has a pain in the knee but he is only expcected to miss this weekend's game.

The last "casualty" is the team's own doing as their Golden Boot winning Mbark Boussoufa has just been sold to Anzji Machatsjkala effective yesterday. The team plays in the Russian Republic of Dagestan and will have the Moroccan's services for the next three years. This season alone, Boussoufa has scored eleven times for Les Mauves, while registering fourteen assists.

The Eupeners are reporting no new injuries as they try to keep themselves out of the Exqi League next season.

When the two sides met up earlier in the season in Brussels, the champions came away 4-1 winners with their departed Moroccan hitting the back of the net once.
