AMSTERDAM – Mikkel Diskerud and Rosenborg lost ground in the title race on Sunday, falling 3-1 at Tippeligaen leaders Molde FK.

The playmaker worked 74 quiet minutes for the Troll Kids, who lost for the first time in eight league games to slip 12 points off the top spot in fourth place.

Over in Belgium, Sacha Kljestan made a late cameo off the bench as Anderlecht opened the new Jupiler League season with a 3-1 victory over visiting Mouscron-Péruwelz.

Seeking their fourth consecutive title, the Mauves jumped straight into second place, one goal in differential behind arch nemesis Standard Liège.
