KAA Gent drop costly points away at Waasland-Beveren

KAA Gent dominated the first half at the Freethiel, but failed to convert any of their chances. Then, against the run of play, Caufriez scored for Waasland-Beveren. Soon afterwards, the same player escaped with a yellow card after a terrible challenge on Dejaegere that more than warranted red. The home side were much better after half time, and Forte doubled their lead from the spot. In the final minutes, Caufriez finally did get sent off, and Kvilitaia pulled one back with a header, but there was not enough time for Gent to rescue a point. It was a costly 2-1 defeat, with the Buffalos missing out on the chance to climb into the top six.
