AA Gent loses again, Cercle gives victory away

Yet again AA Gent has suffered an embarrassing home defeat. This time it was Sporting Charleroi that made the Buffaloes blush, inflicting a 2-1 defeat on Bob Peeters’ boys. Second-placed Zulte Waregem was unable to get further than a one-all draw away RAEC Mons. At the foot of the table, Cercle Brugge threw away at two goal advantage to draw two-all at home against Waasland-Beveren.

Zulte Waregem face at strong Mons side determined to take something from the match. The West Flemings that are currently second in the league came back from 1-0 behind to draw their match against the Dragons.

Cercle desperately needed to win their home match against relegation rivals Waasland-Beveren. Despite leading 2-0 five minutes from time the match ended in a two-all draw after two late goals from the visitors.
