Gent claim three vital points against Cercle Brugge

With so few chances created in the first 45 minutes, it was little surprise that Gent and Cercle Brugge went into the break at 0-0. The Buffalos looked better after three half-time substitutions, but it was the visitors who had the best chance, when Hoggas struck the post. Gent had a great opportunity to go in front ten minutes before time, after a foul on Fortuna in the box. Though Castro-Montes saw his penalty saved, he scored from the rebound to secure the Buffalos a valuable 1-0 win, moving them up to 9th in the table.

Gent unlucky to just get a point against Eupen

Gent went behind early on against KAS Eupen to a Prevljak strike, although it should have been adjudged offside.
