MATCHES Anderlecht have announced the selection for tomorrow’s game in Ghent. Vincent Kompany is not in the selection. Doubtful case Elias Cobbaut is present, just like the newcomers Marko Pjaca and Dejan Joveljic. The 18-year-old defender Lucas Lissens reaches the competition core for the first time.
Anderlecht are facing a crucial diptych with difficult away matches to Ghent and to Mechelen. Kompany was doubtful and will therefore not be there. Cobbaut, who was injured last week, is in the selection, just like Colassin, who may be operated on after Ghent. Due to the injuries of Kompany and Cobbaut, youth product Lissens gets its first selection.
The match is too early for the injured Nacer Chadli, Kemar Roofe, Samir Nasri, Yari Verschaeren and Pieter Gerkens.
Selection: Van Crombrugge, Roef, Vercauteren, Murillo, Kana, Luckassen, Sardella, Lissens, Cobbaut, Kayembe, Sambi Lokonga, Zulj, Dewaele, Vlap, Pjaca, Doku, Amuzu, Bakkali, Colassin, Joveljic
