Rampant Santini can fire Anderlecht to victory
Mouscron look well out of their depth
Belgian Pro League
An end-of-season slump saw Anderlecht miss out on Champions League qualification in the Belgian top flight last term but they can continue their electric start to this campaign at home to Mouscron.
Courtesy of seven goals in three games from new forward Ivan Santini, Anderlecht sit top of the Pro League and they can tear through the struggling visitors.
Santini has netted hat-tricks in 4-1 and 5-2 victories over Kortrijk and Oostende this term.
Hein Vanhaezebrouck took charge of Anderlecht early last season and remains in the dugout, despite a poor performance in the Championship playoffs.
His side have invested well this summer in an attempt to close the gap on last term's title-winners Club Brugge, bolstering their rearguard with the acquisitions of Elias Cobbaut and Ognjen Vranjes and sharpening their front line with Santini and former Valencia forward Zakaria Bakkali.
Mouscron finished third from bottom with the worst defensive record in the regular season last term and have lost their opening three fixtures of the new campaign.
They have found the net just once this season and have a miserable record against the Purple and White.
Anderlecht have won their last four meetings with Mouscron, in which they have notched a combined 16 goals, including a 7-0 demolition two years ago. They can chalk up a comprehensive win once again.
Anderlecht to win to nil
