No AA Ghent Friday afternoon in the jars for the draw of the groups of the Europa League. The Buffalo went down on the field of Bordeaux (2-0). An early hit and a penaltygoal just past the hour did the East-flanders in the tie. Gent showed a possible qualification previous week on their own field.
Zero-zero was an annoying but certainly not the worst position to return to start. When a goal is scored by the home team changed there is nothing substantial for the guys from gent: they had to anyway to score to qualify. Unfortunately for the Buffalo fell that goal very early: barely ten minutes away, was Kamano central lost sight of the goalkeeper Kalinic had no recourse against the low slider for the attacker of Bordeaux.
Ghent knew immediately what it was: scoring was the order. Director Odjidja tried to expand their horizons and saw Ghent, slowly but surely, the initiative to take over. Unfortunately, it led not to a very large shooting skill. A slider of Odjidja and a header of Rosted, that was about it. Then got Lovre Kalinic on the other side to do more. So ranselde he an attempt by Briand from goal and he saw how Tchouaméni a toe, and come short of the score to double.
Press after the break
Ghent-coach Yves Vanderhaeghe hold in the pause: he brought Brecht Dejaegere for Odjidja in the hope of more schwung in the Gent game. And that seemed to work. A dumb barge of Owanyi found Yaremchuk but his attempt was allowed to creep in.
Gent smoke his chance but realized that it was not a second goal was allowed to swallow. It took until the hour honor Vanderhaeghe his joker Jonathan David on the mat, spent. Unfortunately, he brought the Canadian this time no luck because it was the home team who immediately scored. Plastun took ex-Buffalo Kalu down. A Penalty was the ref. Jimmy Briand knew no mercy and sent Kalinic the wrong way. With not even a half an hour to play was to Gent two times scoring. Tricky, too tricky, as it turned out. Bordeaux straightened the back and let the Buffalo’s are not allowed to be in the contest to come.
