The 2014 – 2015 Pro League
Regardless of which version of the Anderlecht shirt you like best, now is the perfect time to purchase one. Things are getting down to the wire in the 2014 – 2015 Belgian Pro League. If the Purple and Whites are going to topple Gent in the three weeks of competition that remain, they are going to need help from their fans!
RSC came into this season as three-time consecutive winners of Belgium’s Pro League, and as natural frontrunners to win once again. Surprisingly, though, the soccer squad ended up in third place on the division’s regular season table.
Indeed, in the 30 games that make up the regular season, Anderlecht won 16, drew nine, and lost five. Gent had an identical record, but took second place based on superior goal difference. Club Brugge, meanwhile, finished out at the top of the regular football season, with 17 wins, 10 draws, and just three losses.
In the championship playoffs, though—to which the top six teams from the regular Pro League rankings qualified—the standings have shifted slightly. While the Purples and Whites have struggled in the RSC Anderlecht away jersey 2014 – 2015—they’ve lost playoff away games against Standard Liege, Club Brugge, and Gent—they’ve had good enough luck at home to worm themselves into second place.
With home and away victories against Sporting Charleroi, a 5-1 at-home blowout against Kortrijik, and this past weekend’s big triumph over Brugge, RSC Anderlecht are positioning themselves to make a last-minute run at the league title. Help them get there today, by picking up a new Anderlecht shirt from the Soccer Box online store!
Anderlecht’s biggest win of the championship playoffs so far, though, came on Sunday, when they faced off against Club Brugge’s Blue-Blacks once again. Leading up to the May 10th fixture, the Blue-Blacks were in second place in the playoffs, while the Purple and Whites were in third.
Donning the 2014 – 2015 home jersey for a match at their own Stade Constant Vanden Stock, RSC finally managed the advantage over Brugge that they’ve been chasing after all season. With a goal just one minute into the football match—scored by midfielder Andy Najar, and assisted by Steven Defour—the Purple and Whites got off to a great start and never let go of their lead.
The Blue-Blacks did manage to get on the scoreboard—at 67 minutes, with a goal from Lior Refaelov. But two additional scores for the home side—one by Aleksander Mitrovic, the other by Dennis Praet—ensured that Anderlecht won the match 3-1.
Will this big win give the Purple and Whites the momentum they need to dethrone Gent at the top of the Belgium Pro League rankings? We’ll find out over the next few weeks. Today, the squad will play a home match against Standard Liege; on the 21st, they’ll don the RSC Anderlecht away jersey 2014 – 2015 for an away fixture at Kortrijik; and on the 24th, they’ll close out their season in a clash with Gent.
