Dennis Bonaventure netted his sixth goal of the season as Club Brugge claimed a 3-2 away victory at Anderlecht in a Belgian Championship fixture.

Pieter Gerkens, off a Yannick Bolasie assist, pulled one back for the hosts in the 64th minute before Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld, on in place of Bonaventure, restored the visitors’ two-goal lead.

In injury time, Adrien Trebel scored Anderlecht’s second to ensure there was a tense finale but Brugge held out for the maximum points.

The victory took Brugge to second in the log, a point behind leaders Genk.
