AA Gent responded on the field after last week’s defeat to Charleroi. At home, he comfortably beat Zulte Wargem 2-0. Buffalo dives into the top five in the ranking.
Ghent – Zolt Wargem in a nutshell:
- Key moment: After a sleep-inducing first half, Hugo Kuipers wakes up after the break. Leading 1-0 against the ropes early. Zulte Waregem is not recovering from this major mistake.
- man of the match: No one stood head and shoulders above the rest of the night. Then Alessio Castro Montes, who showed himself particularly active in the first half.
- noticeable: Zulte Waregem is deep in the Jupiler Pro League after another defeat and 5 out of 24. He’s partnered with Cercle Brugge.
The first half to soon forget
Ghent had better win if he didn’t want to lose contact with the top and the job was done. However, the three points did not yet come as fun football.
Gent and Zolt Vargem played little in the first half. We even had to wait until the 42nd minute for the first shot between the two crossbars. A little earlier, Hugo Kuipers missed a huge opportunity.
It was hoped that he would recover after the break. Gent had already walked out of the dressing room even more eagerly. Now Cuypers wants to sign up. Headed into the corner just fine.
Then you would expect a reaction from Zulte Waregem, but it never came. Gent remained the most dangerous team with a shot from Vadis Ojedia. However, it was Torunarigha who secured victory.
And so Ghent scores an important victory and settles into the top 5. Things are getting worse for Zolt and Argym.
