European Super Cup 1978 Anderlecht Liverpool

First Leg

Referee: Karoly Palotai (Hungary)

After a 1-0 defeat at Highbury, Liverpool made the journey to Belgium in subdued spirits. The team was going through a lean spell that would continue until Christmas. However, the new year would bring a revival of the Reds's fortunes, eventually leading to the club winning the league championship with a record-breaking 68 points.
Unfortunately, the Super Cup lie with the Belgians was sandwiched in the middle of the bad patch. RSC Anderlecht went ahead in the 16th minute, much against the run of play, when Graeme Souness was robbed in midfield and Vercauteren went through to shoot past Clemence. Eleven minutes later, Souness made amends for his mistake when he put a fine bail through to Ray Kennedy. The former Arsenal striker headed it on to Jimmy Case, and he checked inside the defender and slammed the bail home.
The intelligent forward runs of François Van der Elst, Anderlecht's classy international defender, were continually forcing Liverpool on to the defensive, and it was Van der Elst, seven minutes before the break, who edged the Belgians back into the lead with a first time shot from 15 yards out. On the stroke of time, Robby Rensenbrink, Anderlecht's Dutch international striker, scored a superb goal to give the Belgians a 3-1 lead.
