KAA Gent into Europa League after defeat in Kyiv

Speeldag 2 - UEFA Champions League voorrondes - 29-09-2020 at 21:00 u

In the second leg away at Dynamo Kyiv, the Buffalos failed to overturn the 2-1 deficit from first leg and so have not made it into the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. Buyalskiy put the home side in front with a backheel after just 9 minutes. Gent missed several chances to equalise and then, just before half time, De Pena doubled Kyiv's lead from the spot. In the 49th minute, Rodrigues put the game and the tie completely beyond doubt when he converted a softly given penalty. Nevertheless, Gent's heads never dropped and they continued to make chances, but Bushchan pulled off a number of saves to stop them scoring a deserved consolation. So Dynamo Kyiv go further in the Champions League, while Gent continue their European adventure in the UEFA Europa League group stage.
