Percy Tau was on target for Anderlecht who were denied victory by a late goal against OH Leuven in the Belgian Pro League on Sunday evening.
The Bafana Bafana international was thrown straight into the line-up for his sixth consecutive start after before the international break.
The sides took time to settle into the contest, and it took just over the half-hour mark for a shot on target, as goalkeeper Hendrik van Crombrugge denied Kamal Sowah of OH Leuven the breakthrough.
Anderlecht eventually broke the deadlock seven minutes before the break, with Tau the playing a central role with a key through ball for Michael Bermudez on the right wing, who whipped in a low cross that was fired home by Yari Verschaeren.
Tau gave Vincent Kompany's charges a two-goal cushion on the stroke of half-time with a well cushioned header at the near post after a cross by Bogdan Mykhaylichenko.
Leuven had a great start in the second stanza as Frederic Duplus pulled a goal back eight minutes from the break with a looping strike from the centre of the box from a set-piece situation.
Xavier Mercier came close to levelling matters in the last 20 minutes with a strike in the centre of the box that was saved by van Crombrugge.
Mathieu Maertens eventually snatched the equaliser for Leuven in the last six minutes with a sensational half-volley from just outside the box into the top corner.
Anderlecht had a penalty appeal referred to the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in the last minute but the decision did not go in their favour as the encounter finished all square.
