KAA Gent suffers debatable 1-3 loss to Standard

Soon in the important game against R Standard de Liège, Gent was denied a penalty that it should've gotten because of a clear pulling faul against Gigot. Right before the break, however, the Buffaloes took the lead through a header from Janga. In the second half, Standard first levelled and then took the lead through goals by Cimirot and  Edmilsion. Janga scored again and levelled for the Buffaloes, but the goal was disallowed for unclear reasons after the ref consulted the VAR. Later, the VAR gave Gent a penalty for a hand ball, but Standard's keeper Ochoa stopped Yaremchuk's penalty kick. At the end, a counter attack by Standard resulted in a third goal for the visitors (1-3), leaving the Buffaloes with a very sour and debatable loss
