Gent go down to 2-1 defeat away at Standard

It looked like Standard and Gent would be going into half time at 0-0 after Lestienne and Kums had both hit the woodwork and Yaremchuk had missed a penalty. But in the 43rd minute the Buffalos were awarded another spot kick, which Castro-Montes slotted home on the rebound. After Muleka levelled after the break, Gent had several chances to regain the lead on the counter attack, but could not find the net. Standard made them pay in the 77th minute when Balikwisha scored what proved to be the winning goal.

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 claim three vital points against Cercle Brugge

The Buffalos had the best of the first half against league leaders Club Brugge but could not get their noses in front. They were made to pay in the second half, with the visitors scoring three in a dazzling fifteen-minute spell—one from De Ketelaere and two from Dost—before Perez made it 4-0 in the 80th minute. While the margin of victory perhaps flattered the men from Bruges, they undeniably deserved the three points.

Gent out of cup after quarter-final loss to Eupen

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.

Mechelen and Gent share the spoils after early goals

The first half between Mechelen and Gent was an exciting affair. Yaremchuk opened the scoring after ten minutes, before Storm levelled five minutes later. Both sides had several more chances before the break, but neither could capitalise on them. Things became much more tepid after half time, with Thoelen and Bolat only having a couple of saves to make. So the game ended 1-1, with both sides picking up a point.

Yaremchuk hat-trick steers Gent to easy win over R Excel Mouscron

Yaremchuk came close to putting Gent into an early lead at home against R Excel Mouscron, but had to wait until the 28th minute to get on the scoresheet. The Buffalos then looked to increase their lead, but Kums struck the post and Koffi made a number of great stops. They finally got a second in the 70th minute, through substitute Tissoudali. In the closing stages, Yaremchuk chalked up two more goals, both from Odjidja assists. Thanks to this hat-trick, the striker's second of the season, Gent ran out comfortable 4-0 winners.

Gent come from behind to dump Charleroi out of the cup

In their home tie against R Charleroi SC in the last sixteen of the Croky Cup, the Buffalos could not have got off to a worse start, finding themselves behind in the first minute thanks to a great strike from Nicholson. Gent struggled to impose themselves for the rest of the half, but were an improved outfit after the break. Once Yaremchuk had made it 1-1 with fifteen minutes to go, the game turned on its head. Odjidja, on as a substitute, put the Buffalos in front, before Berahino's own goal five minutes before time assured the boys from Ghent of a quarter-final spot.

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. By the half hour mark, the Buffalos had completely turned the tables: new signing Bezus Tissoudali scoring twice in the box to round off some good attacking play. The home side were on top after half time, but it was Eupen who scored next, through Prevljak's spot kick. Then Tissoudali thought he had got his hat trick, but after several minutes of deliberation VAR ruled the goal out for offside, despite this not being visible from the replays. So the game ended 2-2, leaving the Buffalos feeling aggrieved at not having picked up three points.
