KAA Gent triumphed in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League to go through to the play-off round. Their Austrian opponent Rapid Wien offered stiff competition, but Dorsch headed the Buffalos into the lead just before half time. After Chakvetadze earned a penalty in 59th minute, which was converted by Yaremchuk, Gent were seemingly cruising to victory, but Demir's 93rd minute goal made it a tense final few minutes. The Buffalos held on, however, and now face a two-legged tie against Dynamo Kyiv for a place in the Champions League group stage.
