After three years without a trophy, Anderlecht called on Constant Vanden Stock, former national team coach, as president and recruited star striker from Club Brugge KV, Rob Rensenbrink. Once again Standard's runner-up on the national scene, Anderlecht can defend its European title the following year. On July 18, first team manager Antonio Conte was rewarded for his successful first season at Chelsea with a new two-year contract, replacing the previous contract and offering better terms to the Italian. The rights paid by television represent between a third and two thirds of club budgets. In 1966, in the quarter-final of the European Champion Clubs' Cup, Anderlecht again faced Real Madrid. The First World War interrupted official competitions, while the club found a real field in Meir Park (known today as Astrid Park) where it moved in 1917. The new stadium was named Stade Emile Versé, in honor of the first patron of the club.
The sale of star attacking duo Tomasz Radzinski and Jan Koller (for 200 million Belgian francs to Everton and 500 million to Borussia Dortmund respectively) allows the return of Pär Zetterberg, considered by some to be the club's most influential player since Vercauteren. The Belgians finally lost in the final against the Germans Hamburg SV (0-2), conceding two goals at the end of the game. This first trophy inaugurates a long period of domination of Anderlecht on national football: six new titles of champion are removed between 1949 and 1956, then two new in 1959 and 1962, and finally a record of five consecutive championships of Belgium between 1964 and 1968. Englishman William Gormlie, coach from 1950 to 1960, and Frenchman Pierre Sinibaldi, who took over until 1966, left their mark on the club. With the Berjallien club, he discovered the highest level of French and European rugby as well as the French selection.
The Frenchman composes the Belgian team in a 4-2-4 formation, inspired by the two double Brazilian world champions. The style of both players is similar. On September 30, 1964, during the match between Belgium and the Netherlands at the Bosuil stadium in Antwerp, Belgian coach Constant Vanden Stock lined up ten players from Anderlecht at the kick-off (Jean Cornelis, Georges Heylens, Paul Van Himst, Jef Jurion, Laurent Verbiest, Johan Devrindt, Wilfried Puis, Jean Plaskie, Pierre Hanon, Jacky Stockman), then eleven after the half-time replacement of FC Liégeois goalkeeper Guy Delhasse by Jean Trappeniers. A year later, the same ranking earned him the opportunity to compete in the promotion play-offs, which he won against FC Liégeois. A week later, Strasbourg travels for the second day of Ligue 1 in front of a crazy Parc des Princes because in addition to being the first home match in front of the entire public since the Covid-19 pandemic, shortly before the meeting on club from the capital presents its impressive summer transfer window made up of Spanish defender Sergio Ramos, Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, Moroccan full-back Achraf Hakimi, Italian European champion goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and six-time Argentine Golden Ball winner Lionel Messi.
Group Stage – Matchday 1 FC Barcelona Ext. Weakened by the departures of Vercauteren, Scifo and Lozano (seriously injured in the leg after a tackle by KSV Waregem defender Yvan Desloover (nl)), Anderlecht abandoned its championship title during the 1987-1988 season but won the Belgian Cup in 1988 and 1989. In the Cup of Cups, the Mauves once again offered themselves a great epic, notably beating FC Barcelona and Dinamo Bucharest, but finally lost in the final against Sampdoria Genoa, with a double from Gianluca Vialli in overtime (2- 0). With two titles and four finals, Anderlecht is the most successful club in the competition behind FC Barcelona. This streak marked the start of a great rivalry between the two clubs, exacerbated by their respective successes in the 1970s. Anderlecht was again Belgian champion in 1974, but won only one national title between 1975 and 1984 ( against four at Club Brugge). The following year, Sporting players again won the national title and the Super Cup. He won his 25th national title as well as the Belgian Supercup. Anderlecht, whose new coach was Raymond Goethals, defended their European title with self-sacrifice the following year, eliminating Roda JC, Galatasaray SK, the English of Southampton FC and the Italians of SSC Napoli.
