On the final matchday of the Europe Play-Offs, the Buffalos beat top-spot rivals YR KV Mechelen to claim Belgium's last European spot. The first half was goalless, with Bezus coming the closest to scoring when he headed against the bar. It was Bezus who broke the deadlock after the break with a cracking header. Tissoudali, on as a sub, doubled Gent's lead, before Druijf made it 2-1 from the spot to set up a nail-biting finish. Mechelen were on top in the closing stages, but they could not find the net again. So the Buffalos celebrated their fourth win on the spin, and more importantly first place in the Europe Play-Offs, meaning they qualify for the UEFA Europa Conference League.
