Standard steal last-gasp win in Ghent

The Buffalos got off to a flying start in and put Standard under a lot of pressure, but could not convert their dominance into a goal. Then the sucker punch just before half time: Emond scoring from a free kick which Gent were unlucky to concede. Just after the break, the Buffalos equalised with beautiful strike from Verstraete, and then they ramped up the pressure. Yet once again, the home side failed to convert and it was Standard who scored against the run of play, with Marin's penalty securing an underserved three points for the visitors.
