Gent triumph in lively battle of Flanders

Speeldag 6 - Jupiler Pro League - 03-09-2023 to 13:30 u

The Buffalos picked up all three points in the top-of-the-table clash against Club Brugge. They dominated the first half, and deservedly went in front through Hong, before Vanaken nodded in an equaliser in the 43rd minute. Cuypens almost restored the lead straight away, but his header struck the bar. They did make it 2-1 early in the second half, however, through Hong. Things then looked relatively comfortable for Gent until Fadiga got a second yellow, but Nardi and his defence held firm. So the Buffalos emerged victorious in the Battle of Flanders and return to the top of the league, with 13 points out of 15.
