Gent on wrong end of 7-goal thriller in Mechelen

The first half of Mechelen and Gent was a fascinating affair. The Buffalos had most of the chances and Tissoudali put them ahead, but Mrabti soon equalised with a deflected effort. Gent continued to make chances after half time, and regained the lead through Depoitre. But once again Mechelen quickly levelled up, this time through a great strike by Storm, before Storm won a penalty which Mrabti duly converted. Then it was Gent's turn to come from behind, with Tissoudali finishing off Depoitre's cross. Yet Mechelen dug deep and Storm made it 4-3. Bezus and Tissoudali both hit the bar, but the Buffalos' scoring was over for the night, meaning they came away from a thrilling match empty handed.
