Club draws 2-2 against Anderlecht

Club Brugge has drawed the home game against Anderlecht. Vadis Odjidja scored the opening goal after 20 minutes and Carlos Bacca doubled the lead 60 minutes in. Blauw-Zwart gave up the victory in the last half hour: Duarte deviated Bruno's kick into the goal and Armenteros scored the equaliser in the 85th minute.

Juan Carlos Garrido changed the team in only one position: Jim Larsen - back from his suspension came back in as a central defender. Ryan Donk moved one row ahead and Gudjohnsen went back to the bench.

Club was the first team to knock on the door but Bacca's header and kick both went wide. Kujovic had to save a hard ball by Iakovenko. The game reached its first climax after 20 minutes when referee Nzolo had no option but to allow a penalty kick when Proto fouled Bacca on his way to the goal. Odjidja kicked the ball right at Proto but was given another chance when Nuytinck allowed the ball to come back to Odjidja, who put it in the back of the net (1-0).

Anderlecht reacted right away. Dennis Praet kicked the ball against the goal post after a razorblade counter attack. Blauw-Zwart took over the game from there: beautiful combinations but not enough solid opportunities were their part. Reafaelow was threatening but his kick went wide.

Shortly after the break,  Bacca was taken down in the box again, but Nzolo allowed the game to go on. A little later, Proto saved a kick by Odjidja. Bacca scored the rebound, the goal was not approved because of off-side. After an hour, the 2-0 was scored anyway, when Carlos Bacca scored on an assist by Lestienne.

Anderlecht had just brought Tom De Sutter in the team. This allowed them to take a more offensive stance. Iakovenko shot on goal twice. Bacca also came very close but allowed Anderlecht to score when Massimo Bruno's kick hit Duarte's body and ended up in the back of the net (2-1).

The final minutes were very exiting: De Sutter's volley kick went wide but 5 minutes before the end, Armenteros scored the 2-2. In the final minute, Nuytinck took down the broken free Tickovski, but the score did not change anymore.
