AA Gent come back from two-down to draw against the German League leaders

AA Gent became the only Belgian club to take a point from a European game this week. The Buffaloes came back from being 2 goals down to draw 2-2 the German League leaders Wolfsburg. Later in the evening Standard too went two-down. However, their failure to score a second goal meant that they returned empty handed from their trip to Eintracht Frankfurt.

The game looked to have to have been heading towards a hefty defeat for the Buffaloes after Wolfsburg scored twice in the first 25 minutes. Weghorst opened the scoring for the visitors on 4 minutes with Victor making it 0-2 to Wolfsburg 21 minutes later. Jaremtsjoek’s first goal of the game came three minutes from half the first half ended with the Germans 1-2 up.

They was a big improvement on the part of AA Gent in the second half. However, it wasn’t until the 95th minute that Jaremtsjoek scored the goal that would ensure AA Gent of a point. The result leaves AA Gent second in their group with 5 points from 3 games. Wolfsburg also have 5 points, but lead the group thanks to their superior goal difference.
