The unfortunate Tissoudali was heartbroken by his teammates before kick-off, and former AA Gent manager Freddy Delcourt received thunderous applause from the stands at Gillamco Arena.
After the first whistle, Okumo wasn’t fully awake in Gent’s rear. Fitokili took advantage of the opportunity after five minutes of play, to push it 0-1 in the net by Rove to the goal.
After that, the match had no chance and to make matters worse, the home team also lost Hjulsager after half an hour with a (muscular) injury.
However, Ghent managed to turn the score completely before the end of the first half. First Mare equalized from close range, after which Kuipers made the score 2-1 through a penalty kick after hands from De Kuiper.
After the coffee, Ghent was in charge of the doctoral student. While Castro Montes tested his former teammate Polat, it wasn’t long after substitute Bernat did the same on the other side after a superb attack by the guests.
Gent held out without much trouble after that, although he also lost Combs through injury. With a 5 out of 9 start to the season not as dramatic, Hein Vanhaezebrouck breathed a sigh of relief, as did all of the Ghent supporters.
