114: Anderlecht Repeat

4 May 2024
Anderlecht, Belgium

Mr BadDragon has led his Anderlecht side to back to back title wins. The defending champions overcame a disappointing mid season slump which appeared to have opened the door to Genk. However a good run of wins saw them slam the door firmly in their rivals faces.

We did what we needed to do and were assisted by a slump in form by Genk were the only team with a chance of catching us.

One game to play and a point will see us unable to be overtaken. With a goal difference of +74 vs Genks +41 level on points equals a win!

We field the same XI from the match against Club Brugge. Can we get the win to wrap up the title?

We had to work hard for our first goal, however when it came the fight went out of Standard de Liege. We banged in two additional goals just to be safe!
