Gent had to win away at SV Zulte Waregem to get into the Play-Offs, and they grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck. Castro-Montes opened the scoring and Yaremchuk doubled their lead on the half hour. Just after half time, Castro-Montes smashed in his second of the night, before Ngadeu scored with a great header to make it four and Odjidja made it 5-0 from the spot. Substitute De Bruyn also got onto the scoresheet, and Yaremchuk finished off the rout. Late strikes from Bruno and Pletinckx gave the home side a semblance of dignity, but the outcome was never in doubt: the Buffalos had three points and a place in the European Play-Offs in the bag.
