Battling Gent eke out well-earned victory over Standard

The Buffalos got off to a disastrous start against R Standard de Liège, when a corner deflected off Ngadeu into his own net with just two minutes gone. Gent gradually got over this early shock, and Fortuna made it 1-1 just before the half-hour mark. In the second half, the Buffalos showed a lot of determination and were deservedly on top. Bodart was on good form and pulled off several good saves, but was finally beaten again in the 85th minute by Yaremchuk's lovely chip. At the final whistle, Gent's relief in picking up the three points was palpable.
