AMSTERDAM – Sacha Kljestan and Anderlecht restored their eight-point Jupiler League on Thursday by heading into the winter break with a 4-1 rout of visiting Lierse.

The US midfielder went all 90 minutes for the defending Belgian champs, who have now won 10 straight league matches since his return to the lineup in October. Kljestan could have notched an assist with a fine cross near the break, only to have Milan Jovanovic somehow miss the frame from close range.

The victory also extended Anderlecht's home unbeaten run in domestic play to 15 games.
