Gent beat Brugge to Champions League

Published: Saturday 8 May 2010, 23.49CET
KAA Gent secured second place in Belgium and a UEFA Champions League third qualifying round berth in stunning style with a 6-2 defeat of Club Brugge KV. Club Brugge were three points ahead of their rivals at kick-off but Gent's victory proved enough to overtake them because they won more games in the ten-round championship play-offs. They enter Europe's premier club competition at the same stage as titlewinners RSC Anderlecht, while Club Brugge go into the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round. The other berths in that competition will be filled by Cercle Brugge KSV, who face Gent in next Saturday's Belgian Cup final, and the winner of next week's two-legged play-off between KRC Genk and K. Sint-Truidense VV.
