RSC Anderlecht won the Belgian Super Cup on Friday night beating K.A.A. Gent 1-0 in Brussels

Current Belgian champions RSC Anderlecht won the Belgian Super Cup on Friday night after a goal from Cheikhou Kouyaté was enough to give Les Mauves a 1-0 victory in their own Stade Constant Vanden Stock in Brussels against Belgian Cup holders K.A.A. Gent. The victory means that Anderlecht have won the Super Cup for the ninth time in the club’s history with only arch-rivals Club Brugge having won it more times. K.A.A. Gent, on the other hand, have still yet to triumph in the competition after losing both times they’ve participated. The goal came on the half-hour mark with Anderlecht breaking on the counter attack following a Gent corner kick. The ball was played to Lucas Biglia in the midfield who ran into the opposition half with it before passing the perfect through ball to Kouyaté who coolly put it past the keeper first time rather than go around the keeper which, to some observers, looked more likely from the position he was in. The game was played a week before the new Jupiler League season kicks off and the opening day will see champions Anderlecht at home to newly promoted AS Eupen whilst Gent, who finished the 2009-10 season in third place, start their campaign away at KSC Lokeren OV.
