Gent managed to steal a come from behind victory against Standard Liege in the Belgian First Division on Friday evening.

The home side took the lead after 25 minutes through midfielder Yoni Buyens' fourth goal of the season.

But seventh-placed Standard Liege's hopes of maximum points were eroded when defender Jelle Van Damme scored an own goal three minutes before half-time.

Spain defender Cesar Arzo grabbed what proved to be the winner for Gent in the 59th minute after a fine build-up involving Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Soumahoro.
