    • FT FT Anderlecht 0-3 Malaga

    • 79' Kanu lifts the ball over the Malaga defence, but the ball skids off the surface and away from Mbokani.

    • 74' Malaga sub: Duda on, Joaquin off

    • 16' Gillet has talked himself into the referee's book.

    • 1' KICK OFF. Malaga get us underway.
    • 19.40 The players are out, and we are just a few minutes from kick off.
    • 19.35 Neither of these sides have lost in the league yet this season. In fact, the only defeat suffered by either in the 24 games the two have played, came when Anderlecht slipped to a 2-1 defeat at AEL Limassol, in their play-off first leg.
    • 19.30 Roque Santa Cruz scored 11 minutes after coming off the bench in Anderlecht's 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich on matchday two of the 2003/04 group stage. The Paraguayan is on the bench for Malaga tonight, but Martín Demichelis, in the Bayern side that night, starts in the centre of defence.
    • 19.25 Malaga are enjoying their longest unbeaten start to a top-flight season since 2002/03, when they picked up three wins and three draws in their opening six Liga outings. This time they have claimed four victories.
    • 19.20 Málaga's first opponents in that debut campaign were KAA Gent in the UEFA Intertoto Cup third round. They won 3-0 at home before earning a 1-1 draw in Belgium thanks to Julio Dely Valdes's added-time equaliser.
    • 19.15 Málaga boast a solid away record in UEFA competition. Besides earning a 0-0 draw at Panathinaikos in the play-offs, the Andalusian club won five and lost just one of eight away fixtures in their only previous European campaign – which encompassed the 2002 UEFA Intertoto Cup and 2002/03 UEFA Cup.
    • 19.10 Anderlecht's home form in this competition has not been outstanding over the last decade. They have lost seven and drawn two of their last nine home games in the group stage and last won a Champions League fixture in Brussels in November 2003, 1-0 against Lyon.

MALAGA: Caballero, Weligton, Demichelis, Monreal, Sergio Sanchez, Camacho, Joaquin, Iturra, Eliseu, Isco, Saviola SUBS: Kameni, Gamez, Duda, Portillo, Recio, Seba, Santa Cruz.
    • 19:00 Meanwhile, Manuel Pellegrini has said: "Anderlecht are a good team with a lot of attack-minded players and good ball control, but if we win, we will already be five points ahead of them. There is no special Pellegrini method – I just do things my way and it has worked out fine until now, but maybe in the future we will start losing games and that will change."
    • 18:55 Van den Brom said: "Malaga are a good side with a lot of experience, who never panic and play good passing football. We always have to play according to our own strengths, but we respect Malaga."
    • 18:50 John van den Brom has said his Anderlecht side are playing "better with every game" but they will need to have their wits about them to deny on-song Malaga in Group C.
