At Partizan Stadium, the guests, led by Odjidja, immediately dominated the match. After a nice two-legged match with Depoitre, Captain Ghent fell to sixteen. No penalty, but yellow for schwalbe. Strange decision by referee Madden.
Gent continued to dominate the match, but for a long time it was not possible to score real goals. When Depuetry was hired by Chakvetadze after 20 minutes, the Belgian striker fired his shot high above Popovic’s goal.
Partizan was lurking on the counter and after Okumu’s stupid loss for possession it was nearly 1-0 not too long ago. Gomez tried using a low pass, but the Cape Verdean goal-stealer saw his shot eventually go on target.
Motivated by the singing home fans, Partizan came out of the dressing room better. However, it was Gent’s first real chance, but Chakvetadze sent the ball head-on with Popovic in the stands.
Big mistake but the watch was hit for visitors. After Popovic kept Ogedja at 0-1, it was Sven Cooms who scored the opening goal in the net with a pass from Samoys.
Gent now pushed the accelerator fully, but found Popovich in his way twice. Odjidja saw a nice free kick removed from under the bar at the end, after which Norio did not pass the Serbian goalkeeper at the second post.
Partizan kept hoping for an equaliser and a few minutes before the end it looked like he had fallen too. Vujacic sent a cruise missile from about 35 meters, but saw 1-1 explode on the keel with a finger from the Bolat.
Thus, Gent books 9 out of 9 and is alone in the lead in his group. Coach Hein Vanhaisbrück’s men can no longer avoid the winter in Europe.
