Anderlecht without Francis Amuzu for Conference League clash with Bulgarian champions

Anderlecht will be without 23-year-old winger Francis Amuzu for their Conference League first leg tie with Bulgarian champions Ludogorets. In his place the side have called up 23-year-old Swedish winger Henrik Bellman, who has scored twice and provided one assist for the second team in four matches. Bellman signed for the club in January from Swedish side Östersund.

Amuzu has been ever present for Anderlecht in both the league and Europe. He is yet to score or provide an assist in the Conference League this season, but has managed to grab three goals and five assists in his 24 league appearances. At the weekend he grabbed his fifth assist which saw winter signing Islam Slimani get off the mark for the club.

Ludogorets are the premier side in Bulgarian football and have only lost once in the league this season. In Europe, they came third in a Europa League group with Real Betis, Roma and HJK Helsinki.
