KAA Gent are through to the third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League despite a 2-1 away defeat to Romanian side FC Viitorul Constanta. Yaremchuk put the Buffalos ahead in the first half, but after half time Viitorul were awarded two soft penalties, both of which Iancu converted. Gent got chances to equalise, but were not able to hit the back of the net. However, thanks to the Buffalos' 6-3 win in the first leg, their qualification for the next round was never in doubt. They will meet AEK Larnaca from Cyprus in the third qualifying round.
