KAA Gent suffer home defeat at the hands of Excel Mouscron

A confident Excel Mouscron surprised the Buffalos in the first half, forcing Kaminski to pull off a number of good saves. Then Gent hit back, but were unable to get the ball past Butez, and just before half time Awoniyi headed in for the visitors. Six minutes into the second half, Friede doubled Mouscron's lead from a deflected cross. Then, with an hour on the clock, Bronn scored a penalty to make it 2-1, and the Buffalos turned up the pressure. Benson was lucky not to get sent off for the visitors, but then they were reduced to ten men when Bakic was dismissed. However, Sorloth's header against the bar was the closest Gent got to an equaliser.
