Guess you can say Anderlecht is the Bayern of Belgium. Anderlecht is the most successful Belgian football team in European competition (with 5 trophies) as well as in the Jupiler League (29 championship wins).

Our record against Bayern isn't bad in my opinion:

1976 European Supercup:
Bayern Munchen - RSC Anderlecht 2-1
RSC Anderlecht - Bayern Munchen 4-1

1985 / 1986 Champions League:
Bayern Munchen - RSC Anderlecht 2-1
RSC Anderlecht - Bayern Munchen 2-0

1986 / 1987 Champions League:
Bayern Munchen - RSC Anderlecht 5-0
RSC Anderlecht - Bayern Munchen 2-2

2003 / 2004 Champions League:
RSC Anderlecht - Bayern Munchen 1-1
Bayern Munchen - RSC Anderlecht 1-0

8 encounters
4 wins for Bayern Munchen
2 draws
2 wins for Anderlecht

Anderlecht have played 27 games against German opponents in UEFA club competition, winning ten, drawing three and losing 14. Of their 13 home games against Bundesliga sides, they have won seven, drawn three and lost three. Anderlecht have not won in their last nine games – home and away – against German teams.

But hey, that's history and statistics. And you won't win a game with that.

Current facts are that we surprisingly eliminated Bordeaux, and that we're on a bad run this season (something like Bayern had last year). We have some attacking problems (scoring is a huge problem this season) as we only have 1 striker for the game on Thursday (Serhat Akin). Our Hungarian defender Roland Juhasz is suspended.

I expect this formation from our side:

Daniel Zitka

Marcin Wasilewski - Nicolas Pareja - Jelle Van Damme - Bart Goor

Lucas Biglia
Guillaume Gillet - Jan Polak

Thomas Chatelle - - - - - - - - - Mbark Boussoufa
Serhat Akin

Some names will sound familiar. Bart Goor (Hertha), Jelle Van Damme (Werder) and Jan Polak (Nurnberg) all have a Bundesliga history. Serhat Akin was born in Germany by the way, in Karlsruhe to be precise and played last year for 1. FC Köln.

I just hope for a fair and close game. Losing against this Bayern squad is normal, all other results are just great considering our form and the form of Bayern this season.

I give you 3 European trophies not five ;). Supercup doesn't count for me. But well 3 is already top class, some so called world class teams would be happy with that. :)

I would consider a 0-1, 1-2, 2-3 great results. Of course we could live with a draw but a great result would be a small win because of the coefficient.

Anderlecht will be difficult away. Bayern were poor away against Aberdeen and I hope we go in with a different mindset this time round.
You played without Ribéry there. I saw quite some games of Bayern this year on Belgian TV. With or without Ribery is a huge difference.

All our hopes (and our only hope) is a typical Von Blunder day :pp But I can't see us grab a result against this Bayern.

Normally I would say it doesn't matter if Kahn plays or not but the way Rensing has been playing lately I am almost certain that he will cost us a goal again...

So Bayern will possibly field:

Rensing - Sagnol (C), van Buyten, Demichelis, Lahm - van Bommel - Altintop, Schweinsteiger, Ribery - Klose, Toni

I gave Schweini this chance due to the fact that the match in Schalke was great with this formation. Although maybe van Bommel will not be enough defensivelly speaking. If that is the case then:

Rensing - Sagnol (C), van Buyten, Demichelis, Lahm - Ottl, van Bommel - Schweinsteiger, Ribery - Klose, Toni

Any chance of Poldi getting a start?

I still remmember in the 2003/04 Champions League, when Bayern draw at Belgium 1-1 with a goal from Santa Cruz and then won 1-0 in Munich with a penalty goal from Roy Makaay.

That was the year that Roy Makaay's goals alone gave us the last-16 birth. He scored 2 against Celtic, 2 against Lyon and 1 against Anderlecht.

so at half time it's 0:2 from a ~30m strike from HA and a ~4m boot from LT off of a PL cross. Anderlecht were looking resilient in the beginning, but Bayern gradually took control. With a red card given to Wasyl in the 44' it looks a tough game for Anderlecht. SS has been having a good game so far, aside from some difficult passes that didn't get through. LP's performance has been less than mediocre and the rest are holding their ground.
