KAA Gent beaten by hyper-efficient OH Leuven

Speeldag 7 - Jupiler Pro League - 26-09-2020 at 20:45 u

The return of fans to the Ghelamco Arena drove the Buffalos forward in the first half hour of the game, but the post and OH Leuven keeper Romo stopped them taking the lead. Then, with 41 minutes on the clock, Sowah put the visitors in front from their first chance. Three minutes later, from their second chance, Raemaekers made it 2-0. This completely skewed scoreline became even worse for Gent shortly after the break when Sowah finished off a counter attack. Though the Buffalos fought back, they could not get a goal back: Plastun hit the bar, Dorsch struck the post and Niangbo's effort was ruled out. But then the home side won two penalties in quick succession, both of which were converted, by Dorsch and Kleindienst respectively. This made it an exciting final fifteen minutes, and Gent came close to an equaliser when they struck the bar again, this time through Kleindienst, but ultimately they could not avoid defeat.
