After the international break, a Brussels derby against RWDM is immediately on the program for Anderlecht. In the run-up to that game, Brian Riemer received excellent news from the sickbay.
The coach may therefore be able to call on Yari Verschaeren again for the first time, who celebrated his return in a practice match against Zulte Waregem after months of rehabilitation. Although the playmaker will probably first gain some rhythm at the RSCA Futures.
The one who will certainly be present on Sunday is Jan Vertonghen. The defense leader has apparently digested his performance with the Red Devils against Azerbaijan well. The injury to his ankle that he sustained against Cercle Brugge seems to be completely a thing of the past.
Still in defense, Ludwig Augustinsson is also ready for battle again. Due to a collision with Hugo Cuyper, the left back had to leave after half an hour against AA Gent, but on Sunday he played with Sweden against Estonia.
Bad luck for N’Diaye
What’s more: the 53-time international was good for his second assist. In recent weeks, Augustinsson, who won the competition against Moussa N’Diaye, has always been the Purple & White’s holder. So that doesn’t seem to be changing any time soon.
