Nonetheless unbeaten within the group regardless of discovering themselves concerned in two closely-fought battles, Anderlecht actually can’t be underestimated given their evident defensive solidness and boast on-loan Wolves striker – Fabio Silva who has tailored properly at Anderlecht to turn into a key menace in assault.
