Gent defeated despite drawing first blood at Standard

Playing away at Standard, Gent made an excellent start and took the lead after just 8 minutes when Bezus finished off a sublime pass from Castro-Montes. Though the Buffalos controlled the game, they could not find a second goal, and Standard made them pay the ultimate price: first Amallah equalised just after the hour mark, and then Balikwisha put the home side in front in the 77th minute. Gent still had chances to get a draw but were denied by Bodart, who saved Odjidja's penalty and tipped Malede's effort over the bar
