Anderlecht keep perfect record

Anderlecht maintained their 100% record in the Europa League with a comfortable 2-0 win over 10-man Sturm Graz at the UPC-Arena.

Guillaume Gillet scored the opening goal of the game in the 66th minute before Matias Suarez netted his fifth in the competition to keep the Belgian side on top of Group L.

Sturm defender Thomas Burgstaller saw red two minutes after Gillet's goal for his second bookable offence after fouling the Anderlecht defender.

Lucas Biglia had an early chance denied for the visitors when Milan Dudic cleared his outswinging corner in the third minute.

Anderlecht, who are top of their domestic league, showed their intent early when Dieudonne Mbokani broke free but was flagged offside.

Gillet's right-footed strike flew over the bar in the 13th minute before Sturm had their first chance of the match three minutes later when Imre Szabics speculative 30-yard strike missed the left post.

Suarez forced another clearance by Dudic in the 25 minute before Anderlecht went close again seconds later when Biglia's free-kick from the right found Mbokani in the centre of the area but his shot flew over the bar.

Sturm goalkeeper Silvije Cavlina then easily caught Suarez's 18-yard strike as the visitors had all of the chances, but the score remained deadlocked at 0-0 at half-time.

After the break, Sturm defender Patrick Wolf's shot from the right of the area was blocked by Berang Safari as the home side pressed to take the lead.

Manuel Weber and Darko Bodul both tried their luck from 30 yards but Anderlecht goalkeeper Silvio Proto was up to the challenge on both occasions, making two comfortable saves.

But it was Gillet who found the back of an empty net when Cavlina failed to keep hold of Mbokani's cross, making it easy for the defender who turned the ball in from close range.

Things went from bad to worse for Sturm seconds later when Burgstaller was shown his second yellow of the match for a foul on the goalscorer to leave the home side reduced to 10 men for the last 20 minutes.

Suarez made the most of Anderlecht's one man advantage in the 75th minute when he latched on to Mboknani's incisive through ball before skipping round Cavlina and coolly stroking the ball into the net.

There was no way back for Sturm who recorded their second defeat in the group.
