KAA Gent played an excellent first half away at Brugge, the leader in the ranking. However, it was the home team that took the lead through a header from Dennis. Kubo then made the well-earned equaliser. Gent kept putting pressure in the second half, but a deviated shot from Cools put Brugge in the lead again (2-1), causing Gent to go home without any points.
Coach Hein Vanhaezebrouck has left KAA Gent in mutual agreement after the poor results of the last weeks.
KAA Gent want to thank the coach for his work at our club: with him we won our first title ever, we played a great Champions League and Europa League campaign, and the football was often a joy to watch.
We wish Hein all success in his future career!
Watch the press conference below:
The game against Zulte Waregem took a false start when a misunderstanding in the Ghent defense led to the opening goal from Saponjic. As a consequence the visitors only focused on defending the advantage and Ghent was not able to turn things around in the rest of the game.
Away at KV Oostende, KAA Gent picked its first win of the season. Kubo put Gent in the lead with one of the rare chances in the first half. Oostende turned up the pressure in the second half, but it was Gent's substitute Louis Verstraete who scored the 0-2 in the 91st minute and secured the three points for the Buffaloes.

The first win of the season did not seem far away after a penalty goal from Milicevic. But once again the final stage of the match proved to be dramatic with Brabec (KRC Genk) heading in the equalizer in the 89th minute. A heartbreaking loss of two more points!

In a thrilling but goalless match KAA gent and Anderlecht kept each other in balance and shared the points. KAA Gent dominated the first half but Anderlecht goalie Matz Sels (on loan from Newcastle United and ex KAA Gent) was the hero with some superb saves. After the break, the balance between both teams was restored and Gent's keeper Thoelen had to be alert, having to show his skills on three particular occasions. But like Sels, Thoelen kept his clean sheet, causing the match to end in a 0-0 draw.
It looked like KAA Gent were on their way to the first win of the season after stunning goals by Dejaegere and Sylla. But just before halftime our defender Gigot was shown a red card after what seemed to be a correct tackle. After the break the match changed: Mohamed with a lob and Govea with a deviated shot equalized. In the final minutes Bolingi scored in the rebound after our goalkeeper, Kalinic, first stopped his penalty kick. No first win but a sour defeat.

Coach Hein Vanhaezebrouck was very enthusiastic about his work rate and his endeavor. Soon Coulibaly showed he was a proven goalscorer who scored important goals, especially in important European games. So his nickname became “Mr.Europe”.
