Speeldag 1 - UEFA Europa League voorrondes - 27-07-2017 at 20:30 u
KAA Gent have drawn 1-1 against Austrian team SCR Altach in the 3rd qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League. Somewhat surprisingly it was the visiting team that took the lead after only 5 minutes when Ngwat-Mahop headed in the ball. After the early lead for Altach, Gent gradually took over command. Creating plenty of chances, the home team couldn't score and the woodwork even denied the Buffaloes twice from equalising. Only 15 minutes before the final whistle, substitute Kalifa Coulibaly equalised the score after coming on ten minutes earlier. Nicknamed 'Mr. Europe', the Malian giant scored his twelfth European goal in what was our first outing of the third successive European campaign. It could have all ended on a bright note if it weren't for summer signing Mamadou Sylla from Senegal hitting the woodwork for a third time with a free kick in the ultimate minute of the game.
