USA midfielder Sacha Kljestan opened his scoring account for the 2013-14 season Sunday, tallying the opening goal in Anderlecht's 4-1 victory over Gent in Brussels.
Kljestan's 32nd-minute goal was followed soon after by a Dennis Praet strike to help Anderlecht seize control of the game early en route to its second victory in a row after opening the Belgian Jupiler League campaign with a surprise home loss to Lokeren.
Kljestan, who has started all three of Anderlecht's league games thus far in addition to the club's Super Cup triumph last month, is coming off a season in which he tallied four times in all competitions. He has won consecutive Belgian league titles with Anderlecht, and he signed a contract extension with the club in February that lasts through the 2015-16 season.
