What was initially looking to be the latest in a string of impressive performances for Sacha Kljestan turned into a game he would probably like to have back.
Kljestan endured a mix day at the office on Tuesday, as he first set up RSC Anderlecht’s opener in a 1-1 UEFA Champions League draw vs. Paris Saint-Germain before being sent off with a second yellow card in the 82nd minute.
The veteran midfielder continued his recent fine run of form by impressively setting up RSC Anderlecht’s opener against PSG’s star-studded squad in the 68th minute, but the excitement from his assist was quelled by Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s equalizer two minutes later. Making matters worse was Kljestan’s ejection in the final minutes of the match, leaving Anderlecht to close out the match in Paris with 10 men.
Kljestan, who entered the match on a three-game scoring streak, and Anderlecht are now 0-3-1 in their Group C Champions League matches.
Here are the match highlights (Kljestan’s assist at the 1:23 mark):
Impressed with Kljestan’s assist? Hoping to see him start for the U.S. Men’s National Team later this month vs. Scotland and Austria? Disappointed by his sending off?
