Onyekuru out for rest of season
Nigeria forward Henry Onyekuru is out for the rest of the season after tearing his medial ligament. The 20-year-old, on loan from Everton, was injured during Friday's 1-0 win over his former club Eupen and was taken off on a stretcher in the 78th minute. Onyekuru has scored nine goals in 19 league appearances this season playing as a winger. His injury comes as a blow to Anderlecht, who sit third in Belgium's top division.

The teams finishing in positions 8, 10, 11, 13 and 15 will join the second placed qualifier from the Division B in group B.
The winners of both play-off groups compete in one match to play the fourth-placed or fifth-placed team of the championship play-offs for a spot in the final. The winner of the Europa League play-off semi-final and the fourth-placed or fifth-placed team of the championship play-offs (depending on cup winner) will play one match to determine the Europa League play-off winner.
