RSC Anderlecht placed themselves into the European playoff spots on Sunday, with a 2-0 win against OH Leuven away from home. The victory comes in the same week as their European Conference league triumph over Villareal.

With the win against the Spanish side confirming their spot in the quarter-finals of the European competition, Sunday's 2-0 win allowed Anderlecht to get one step closer to competing in the Europa League next season.

The match was fairly straightforward for the Brussels side with their striker Islam Slimani converting a penalty in the 33rd minute and managing to face the onslaught of attack from OH Leuven. Anderlecht even doubled their lead just before the final whistle blew through Norwegian midfielder Kristian Arnstad.
