Genk comeback flattens Dynamo

KRC Genk 3-1 FC Dynamo Kyiv
The Belgian side came from behind to confirm their place in the round of 32 as Group G winners, with all the game's goals scored before the break.

KRC Genk will go through to the UEFA Europa League round of 32 as Group G winners after coming from a goal down to beat FC Dynamo Kyiv 3-1 in a pulsating game.

All the goals were scored in an action-packed first half in Belgium. Andriy Yarmolenko got the ball rolling for Dynamo in the ninth minute, but once Jelle Vossen had equalised with a 17th-minute penalty Genk never looked back. Two goals in the space of three minutes late in the opening period from Bennard Kumordzi and early substitute Benjamin De Ceulaer ensured Genk matched last season's achievement of advancing top of their section.

Yarmolenko made the most of a lucky break to give Dynamo the lead when his attempted pass rebounded off home defender Serigne Mbodji straight back to the winger to leave him a simple near-post finish.

Genk captain Vossen powered the equalising spot kick down the middle after Yevhen Khacheridi had gone in late on Kumordzi in the area. Dynamo midfielder Miguel Veloso then struck the crossbar with a splendid swerving volley before Genk went in front from the move of the match. Thomas Buffel's cross from the right was met by a cushioned Vossen header back across goal and Kumordzi was on hand to tap in.

De Ceulaer – on for Fabien Camus – was credited with Genk's third as Mario Been's men tightened their grip, even if he did not know too much about it as Julien Gorius's corner hit his body and the ball flew past Maxym Koval.

Despite much enterprising football after the interval there was to be no addition to the scoreline. Dynamo remain second in the group, the Ukrainians requiring a point at home to SK Rapid Wien in the final round of fixtures to make sure they join Genk in the knockout stage.
