Nigeria duo of Paul Onuachu and Cyriel Dessers fired Genk past Anderlecht on Saturday to keep the hope of winning the league title alive.
The duo netted in each half as Genk saw off their hosts 2-1 in the Championship play-offs on Saturday.
Onuachu gave Genk the lead in the first half and he has now netted 35 goals in 40 appearances in all competitions for Genk this season.
Onuachu’s 16th-minute opener was later canceled out by Lukas Nmecha who equalized for Anderlecht on 31 minutes.
Onuachu was later replaced by Cyriel Dessers, on 76 minutes and the striker grabbed his chance by scoring the winning goal with four minutes left on the clock.
It was Dessers’ fifth goal of the campaign and his first since 6th December 2020.
With the win, Genk increased their points tally to 38, just two points behind leaders Club Brugge.
