Westerlo and Anderlecht will battle for three points in a Jupiler League matchday eight fixture on Sunday.

The home side come into the clash on the back of a 3-0 defeat away to table-toppers Antwerp. Vincent Janssen set the ball rolling with a 33rd-minute penalty, while Koji Miyoshi and Anthony Valencia completed the rout in the second half.

Anderlecht claimed a hard-fought 1-0 home win over Silkeborg in their UEFA Europa Conference League curtain raiser. Fabio Silva's 81st-minute penalty proved to be the difference between the two sides.

They will turn their attention to league action, where they currently occupy eighth spot, having garnered 10 points from seven matches. Westerlo sit in 13th place on six points.

Westerlo vs Anderlecht Prediction

Westerlo have found the going tough in the top-flight since their promotion last season and they sit just outside the relegation zone on goal difference.

Anderlecht's inconsistent displays mean they are not guaranteed winners, despite entering the game as favorites. However, the visitors have superior quality and we expect them to narrowly edge the game in a tight encounter.

Prediction: Wersterlo 0-1 Anderlecht
