KAA Gent are through to the semi-finals of the Croky Cup. Up against R Standard de Liège, they went one up after just eight minutes through Kums. Standard went in hard in the tackles, and both Nkounkou and Amallah came close to being sent off. The Buffalos were denied a second before half time by the bar and goalkeeper Henkinet, and were made to pay the ultimate price just after the break when Donnum smashed an equaliser into the top left corner. But Gent were determined to regain the advantage, and they did so seven minutes later, through Tissoudali. Ngadeu and Depoitre both had a couple of chances, but were denied by Henkinet. So the result remained in the balance until the 92nd minute, when Tissoudali's second of the night assured the Buffalos of a place in the last four.
KAA Gent have cruised through to the last sixteen of the Croky Cup. Up against Belisia Bilzen from the second tier of the amateur league, they took the lead in the 6th minute through a great strike from distance from Odjidja. Thanks to further goals from Okumu and Mboyo, the Buffalos went into half time with a comfortable 3-0 advantage. After the break, Chakvetadze scored a fourth from the spot, and only the bar and keeper Cascio stopped Gent from inflicting further damage.
The Buffalos have been knocked out of the Croky Cup after a quarter-final defeat away at Eupen. In the first half, both teams had good chances to score, but were foiled by the respective keepers, Bolat and Defourny. Heris put Eupen 1-0 up shortly after the break, after which Gent had to chase the game. Odjidja came closest to getting an equaliser with a header against the bar. Bezus had a good effort in the dying stages, but was denied by Defourny's flying save. So Eupen go through to the semis, and the Buffalos have to wait until next season for another shot at cup glory.
KAA Gent eased through to the last sixteen of the Croky Cup. Playing away at Eendracht Aalst, Kvilitaia quickly opened the scoring for the Buffalos, and Gent dominated the rest of the half, though failed to put any more chances away. More goals came after the break, however. First, Kvilitaia got his second of the evening, and then Kubo scored with a beautiful strike just inside the near post to put the result beyond doubt. The fourth and final goal of the night came from the young Dylan Mbayo, who scored just five minutes after coming on for his debut.
In a fascinating and atmospheric cup final, the Buffalos took the lead through Dompé, but Mechelen equalised through Storm just before half time. In the second half, Mera headed Mechelen into the lead, before Gent put them under a serious spell of pressure. The Buffalos had lots of chances to score a second, but goalkeeper Verrips pulled off a number of saves, and luck was against them. So at the final whistle it was Mechelen who hoisted the Croky Cup aloft.
