Selim Amallah
The 23-year-old got his sixth goal of the season as the Reds failed to make home advantage count against visiting Purple and White

Selim Amallah was on target in Standard Liege’s 1-1 draw at home to Anderlecht in Sunday’s Belgian First Division A clash.

The Morocco international found the net in Thursday’s 2-2 Europa League clash with Arsenal, and against Vincent Kompany’s men, he continued his fine goalscoring form.

In the 40th minute, Amallah controlled a defence-splitting pass from Felipe Avenatti before slotting past goalkeeper Hendrik Van Crombrugge.

However, their lead was short-lived after Kemar Roofe levelled matters in the 67th minute with a fine header.

Anderlecht were reduced to 10-men five minutes later following Sieben Dewaele’s dismissal by referee Jonathan Lardot for a second caution.

Despite the numerical advantage, the hosts could not get the winning goal.

The 23-year-old saw every minute of action while Cameroon's Collins Fai and DR Congo's duo of Merveille Bokadi and Paul-Jose M'Poku were not listed for the tie.

Standard Liege are fourth in the log with 35 points from 19 games and they travel to Waasland-Beveren for their next league outing.
