The Anderlecht dream is alive and well following the astounding 4-1 spanking administered to a distinctly ordinary Real Madrid side. Despite the embarrassment of losing a game to Westerlo, Mr BadDragon has his side in top gear and looking menacing.
This result follows on from the Benfica result and sees Anderlecht firmly on top of their group for the second year in a row.

Well, just after our winning run went to 15 games we turned a god awful performance to drop a game to Westerlo. We did bounce back from that and handed Real Madrid a thumping of truly biblical proportions. Brought a smile to the dial!
Blow by Blow
Jupiler Pro League – Match 9/30
This game could define the title race. A win for us could establish our top position and give us a good lead.
A number of changes in the side sent out today.
We did enough for a mellowpuff, denying the Charleroi a shot through the full 90 mins.
Fifteen wins in a row in the league is a great statistic.
Jupiler Pro League – Match 10/30
Westerlo have come back up to the top division and have found going tough. I don’t expect us to be charitable.
We have made six changes from the last side submitted. “Andre” has returned from injury and makes his first start back.
We were awful today, and were unable to get shots on target. “Campos” summed up the day with a bad error that led to the only goal.
Minor knock for “Trickles”. No real harm done.
Same for “Alex”. We are lucky on both counts.
One plus is the return of “Lembi” back to full fitness.
The rash of minor injuries to first team players continues.
Jupiler Pro League – Match 11/30
We need to pull out a better performance today. There is a danger that we could start to slide if not careful.
We have some tired legs following international commitments. The selections have been made with the next match against Real Madrid in mind.
We managed the win but it was a struggle. We got two goals up however we failed to follow through and almost gave the lead back.
“King Louis” days at Anderlecht are coming to an end. He has struggled to get on the park and today finished poorly.
Champions League – Group D – Match 3/6
It doesn’t get much better than this in European football. That being said, Real Madrid have been awful in this campaign.
The number one side is on the pitch for this one, with the exception of the injured “James”. “Mookee” has made the second striker position his with some solid performances.
This has been a remarkable group. We have beaten both top seeds handily and find ourselves sitting pretty at the top of the group.
Champions League Results
PSG are having a horror time, as are Real Madrid and Dortmund.
Chelsea are stomping it with a 6-0 win over Dundalk, although the lost to Milan and re only second in their group.
Champions League Standings
There are a number of big names at the wrong end of their groups.
A good month with the only blemish being the shock loss to Westerlo.
Sitting seven points clear after elevn games is a good place to be.
The next episode promises to be a bumper one with the Real Madrid rematch, and three league contenders to face.
