RSC Anderlecht took a giant step towards repeating as Pro League champions on Thursday with a 4-2 victory over Lokeren and Sacha Kljestan was the player who helped get things started for his club.

Kljestan scored the opener in Anderlecht’s road win over Lokeren, heading the ball home from close range to end a well-worked set piece in the 25th minute. The goal was the first of four straight that Anderlecht scored before they surrendered two late and it gave Kljestan his fourth tally across all competitions this season.

The victory now puts Anderlecht in a prime position to repeat, as they sit on 48 points heading into the final round of the Belgian playoffs this weekend. Anderlecht does, however, have to host second-place Zulte-Waregem (46 points) on Sunday so they will need at least a draw to capture the Belgian title for a second straight year.

Here is Kljestan’s goal:
