A Dieumerci Mbokani hat-trick ensured Anderlecht maintained their unbeaten start to the Jupiler League season with a 3-0 victory at Cercle Brugge.

The Congolese striker notched in the seventh, 26th and 77th minutes to earn Anderlecht their second win in three matches.

Genk claimed their first success of the campaign with a 1-0 scoreline against Lokeren, courtesy of Thomas Buffel's strike three minutes from time.

Gent and Leuven shared a 1-1 draw in today's other match.

The visitors got off to a flying start with a goal in the opening minute from Ebrahim Savaneh, but Fernando Wallace levelled things up for Gent after 25 minutes.
