Supercup 2000 is won by Anderlecht by a 3-1 victory over RC Genk.
Both teams started with strong line-ups, Anderlecht just gave Pirard and Hasi a starting place and Genk started with their stongest line-up posible ( Hendrickx and Paas injured ).
The first halve was of a decent level: both teams combined well and the match was enjoyable.
The referee denied a penaltyfoul on radzinski after 25 min.
Than Genks 4-4-2 got penetrateted twice and both Pirard and Stoica scored.
Bassegio fouled Sonck ten min. later and Thijs made 2-1 on the penaltyspot.
Afer the brake Anderlecht put a whole new team on the pitch ( both teams agreed to allow 8 subs.)
The most important subs were Aruna, Anastasiou and Iachiouck for Koller, Radzinski and Stoica.
The new players made a good impression: Anderlecht played with pression allmost the entire second half.
It is a miracle that they scored only once more. Anastasiou scored on the spot after a foul on Iachiouck.
A ball on the lat and another blunder by the ref spared Genk from total humiliation.
Another trophee for nr 35 and a hopeful result for next wednesday against Porto.Why? Because I am convinced that Aruna can make a difference as a sub and Iachiouck can cover for Stoica if he's tierd.
By the by, the golden ( yellow) Anderlecht shirts kick ass!
