KAA Gent lost 4-1 to STVV on Thursday evening. The clash with RSC Anderlecht awaits again on Sunday. And things go from bad to worse when it comes to the core of the Buffaloes.
There was a heavy loss on Thursday when they visited STVV and the balance of that match – apart from the sporting 1 to 9 – will also reverberate with a view to the clash with RSC Anderlecht. Jordan Torunarigha had to be replaced on the hour and is uncertain for Sunday.
Sven Kums, for his part, may be sidelined for a little longer, while Hong and Watanabe are still at the Asian Cup. And of course there are the many departures in recent weeks, which will make it a puzzle for Hein Vanhaezebrouck.
Ghent is missing too many players according to Vanhaezebrouck
Gambor and Mitrovic are eligible to play on Sunday and that may save a drink, but it will not be easy to get everyone ready for the clash with Anderlecht on Sunday.
“I can’t keep searching, I can’t keep inventing. We’re missing too many players. We can’t absorb this, it’s too much,” it sounded worrying in the run-up to the match against the Purple & White.
