3-0 victory in galamatch against Lyon

RSCA 3-0 LYON

RSC Anderlecht has swept aside Olympique Lyonnais aside with 3-0 in Saturday's gala match. An excellent rehearsal for the league opener against KV Oostende, next weekend.

In the first minutes, our new signing Sebastiano Esposito forced goalkeeper Anthony Lopes into a save. It was only a few minutes later when Lior Refaelov did manage to find the net with a shot at the inside of the post.  

The game continued to develop at a fast pace, but at half-time the 1-0 score was still on the board. Our boys came out of the dressing room looking sharp again, with Hannes Delcroix aiming a header on the bar. Hendrik Van Crombrugge then managed some fine saves on, among others, an attempt by Karl Toko Ekambi. 

On the mark of the hour, Sebastiano Esposito scored his first goal in the Lotto Park. The Italian broke free from the French defense on a corner kick by Lior Refaelov and headed the 2-0 goal into the ropes. Francis Amuzu found the net as well after a clever through pass from Yari Verschaeren.
