RSC Anderlecht are through to the UEFA Youth League semi-finals following a comfortable victory against FC Porto in Brussels.
Aaron Leya Iseka set Anderlecht on their way after only four minutes and then doubled the hosts' lead with a penalty. Samy Bourard made it three after 25 minutes and Iseka completed his hat-trick – again from the spot – soon after half-time. Lumor then turned into his own net just after the hour to compound Porto's misery.
Anderlecht flew out of the blocks, Leya Iseka turning Andy Kawaya's cross in from close range. He had his eighth goal in this season's tournament not long after, converting his penalty after Porto's Fidelis had felled Kawaya. Anderlecht's No11 provided another assist for Anderlecht's third, playing in Bourard for a comfortable finish.
Though the Portuguese side threatened through Lumor and Fidelis, Mohamed Ouahbi's charges were soon ascendant once more. Kawaya was again brought down in the area and Leya Iseka again did the necessary to seal his treble. Lumor then erred to round off a miserable trip for Porto.
