Then a bit of comedy keepers. AA Gent lost 2-1 to Red Star Belgrade and substitute keeper Colin Coosemans made an error with the second goal. Bummed, because the Buffalos just fought their way into the match. As a result, they are now desolate last in their group with 0 out of 9 and the European adventure is almost certainly over after three games.

It was written in the stars: if there is so much fuss around the goalkeepers, it will cause misery. Before the match AA Gent was nevertheless happy that it had put Colin Coosemans on the European list in extremis. On Wednesday at the last practice in Belgrade, 17-year-old Owen Jochmans had turned his ankle and was unable to play. Without Coosemans, the even younger René Vanden Borre (16) should have been in goal.

But the Buffalos were also disappointed in the second half. After an hour of play, Katai was allowed to take a free kick. He certainly did not kick that ball into the corner unstoppable, but Coosemans failed to stop the ball: 2-1. Not illogical if you have no competition rhythm at all, but he cursed himself. Yes, the experienced goalkeepers Bolat and Roef also committed blunders, but Ghent would have been involved if Sinan Bolat was no longer suspended.


On the couch, interim coach Peter Balette had to call Wim De Decker at home in the sofa. What to do now? Before half-time, Ghent had been lucky enough to have fought back into the game. It had 63 percent possession of the ball, but there was so little belief in its own ability. Bukari came for the goal more than once, but really didn’t show himself to be a finisher. And when Botaka was separated for the goal, he kicked very silly wide. Confidence is still below zero.

The Buffalos only managed to score with a lucky break. A piet goal, a pinball goal: call it whatever you want. After a shot from Odjidja, the leather deviated twice on a Serbian leg, so that keeper Borjan was certainly beaten: 1-1. After all the misery, that may have been the luck the East Flemish needed to make a déclic, but no …

In fact, it promised to be such a darn night from the opening phase. Red Star – which made little impression – quickly took the lead. The problem with the East Flemish is that defensive players like Castro-Montes and Owusu sometimes attack so eagerly that they are not back in time. With such a counter, the home team took advantage of the space. The cross from the left reached Kanga. Owusu released him too much and Coosemans had already been beaten for the first time. However, the keeper was not to blame for that goal. AA Gent continues to need a coach who has defensive efficiency in his fingers. Spontaneously we think of René Weiler, but that is no more than a personal idea.

Bad for the coefficient

In the second half, the gap could no longer be made up. The good Dorsch pushed his team forward and Wim De Decker brought in Sven Kums from the sofa. He tried to direct the game, but that did not work. Red Star happily left the ball to Ghent. The Serbs received them well and looked for the counter. Only in injury time the visitors were still very close: Kleindienst headed from a meter to goal, but Borjan hit the ball out. It should always have been indoors.

For example, the Buffalos are behind with 0 out of 9 in the Europa League. That not only means almost certainly the shutdown, it also results in embarrassment on the cheeks. Especially when you determine that Slovan Liberec, against whom Ghent lost, again received five hits from Hoffenheim. In addition – together with Standard’s disastrous performance – it is also very bad for the Belgian coefficient in Europe. If things go wrong, we will soon lose our direct tickets to European football. AA Gent must now concentrate on the Jupiler Pro League. Anderlecht will visit on Sunday.
