The Buffalos had the lion's share of possession against a very defensive Charleroi, but created few chances. After the break, Penneteau made a number of saves to keep the home side on level terms. Then, in the closing stages, Gent were hit by a sucker punch when Osimhen finished off a quick counter-attack. Bruno compounded the blow in injury time by making it 2-0, which was the final score.
Rosted opened the scoring against KAS Eupen after just twelve minutes with a great strike. When Marreh was sent off just shy of the half-hour mark it looked like mission impossible for the visitors, but Eupen showed spirit and made life hard for Gent after the break. However, Bronn's close-range effort with fifteen minutes left put the result beyond doubt. The game ended 2-0, meaning the Buffalos leapfrogged Standard and Charleroi to sixth place in the league.
KAA Gent enjoyed a simple passage through to the quarter finals of the Croky Cup. Beerschot Wilrijk could not get into their stride against a dominant home side, and Yaremchuk gave Gent a deserved lead. Just before half time, Rosted latched onto a through ball from Chakvetadze to double the Buffalos' lead. The game continued in a similar pattern after the break, with goalkeeper Vanhamel forced to make a number of saves. Noubissi received his marching orders for a second yellow, and in the dying moments Chakvetadze made it 3-0 with a beautiful effort into the left corner. So Gent went through to the last eight of the cup—for the fifteenth (!) season in a row.
In the East Flanders derby, Lokeren took an undeserved lead on the stroke of half time through a deflected shot from Marecek. Gent also missed chances after the break, and the home side actually went two up thanks to a goal from Terki. It looked like Lokeren were going to beat Gent for the first time since 2010, but their dreams were shattered in the dying minutes, when first Rosted and then Bronn hit the back of the net, making the final score 2-2.
In the big match against R Antwerp FC, Gent thought they had taken an early lead through a fantastic shot by Chakvetadze, but the VAR adjudged that the ball had not crossed the line. The even first half also finished with a referral to VAR, when a goal from Bolingi was disallowed for offside. Bolingi netted again just after the break, but once again the goal was disallowed after VAR ruled him offside. Then it was Gent that had the best chances, but Bolat was equal to them. The Buffalos earned a penalty in the last minute, again following a VAR referral, but Bolat kept the scoreline 0-0 by pushing Odjidja's spot kick against the post.
The 11th EFDN Congress was a huge success. Approx. 150 delegates from all over Europe met in Ghent for the 11th EFDN Conference “CSR in Football”.
Away at Anderlecht, KAA Gent went a goal down after only four minutes through a great free kick from Kums. When Verstraete was shown the red card after half an hour, after a decision referred to VAR, the game already looked lost for Gent. However, despite being down to ten men, the Buffalos showed character and created chances, though were not able to convert any of them. With fifteen minutes to go, Kums sealed victory for the home side with his second of the afternoon. Gent played the final minutes with nine men after Plastun was sent off.
On Tuesday and Wednesday the 13th and the 14th of November 140 representatives of more than 80 European clubs and their foundations, national leagues and football associations will gather in Gent for a congress about CSR & Community in European football.
In a rather lacklustre first half, there were hardly any opportunities for either team and then to make matters worse Stojanovic scored following a defensive blunder. The Buffalos however stood up in the second half and recovered from a bad situation. First, Yaremchuk headed in a great cross from Verstraete and after a handball from Mboyo, Limbombe scored with a cracking shot of eleven metres. In the final minutes, Yaremchuk headed in his second of the evening to make the final score, 3-1.
KAA Gent suffered a disappointing defeat away at R Excel Mouscron. In a close first half, Amallah put the home side ahead with a deflected effort. Then Gent were awarded a penalty after a foul on Limbombe, but the referee changed his mind after a debatable VAR review. On the stroke of half-time, Van Durmen doubled the home side's advantage. The Buffalos were unable to get back in the game in the second half, and Pierrot's goal finished off any hope they had. Chakvetadze got one back just before the final whistle to make it 3-1, but by then the home side already had the three points in the bag.
In the opening game of the 12th matchday of the Jupiler Pro League, the Buffalos controlled the first half, and just after half an hour Chakvetadze headed the home side into a deserved lead. Thanks to a deflected equalizer from Osimhen Thoelene, Charleroi were able to finish the half on level terms, but three minutes into the second half Chakvetadze got his second to restore Gent's lead. Charleroi were unable to get back in it, so the game finished 2-1. Following on from the victory over Oostende, the Buffalos have now got six points out of six under Jess Thorup.
KAA Gent came away from KV Oostende with an emphatic victory. In a dominant first half, Limbombe put Gent ahead, and Yaremchuk headed in just before half-time to make it 0-2. The Buffalos continued their dominance in the second half, and when Chakvetadze scored a third after an hour the game was over as a contest. Limbombe had a goal disallowed, but then did score his second, making the final score a resounding 0-4.
On matchday 10, the Buffalos suffered a heavy 1-5 home defeat to KRC Genk. With just 18 minutes gone, Genk had converted their dominance into a 0-2 lead, with goals from Samatta and Paintsil. Ten minutes later, Ndongala added a third. A rare headed goal from Bronn gave Gent hope, but then a second yellow for Dejaegere put paid to the home side's chances. The Buffalos were better after half time, but conceded two more—a long shot from Malinovskyi and a deflected effort by Paintsil—to finish the game on the wrong end of a 1-5 scoreline.
At Bosuil, Rosted opened the scoring after 15 minutes with a beautiful shot on the turn, but Mbokani headed in an equaliser shortly afterwards. The next pivotal point in this fascinating game came from Odjidja, whose screamer into the top corner ensured Gent ended the first half in the lead. Antwerp were stronger after the break, but needed a deflected shot from Haroun to get back on level terms. The final score was 2-2, which was a fair result for both sides.
In the last-16 match of the Croky Cup the Buffalos took the lead in Virton very early on thanks to Awoniyi's header. The enthusiastic home team equalised after half an hour through François and Joachim even made it 2-1 after half-time. In the final quarter Virton crumbled under Ghents' offensive. First Limbombe scored the equaliser and in the 89th minute Awoniyi's diagonal header hit the back of the net. Limbombe finished it off with a nicely placed ball and put the 2-4 final score on the board.
