AA Gent wins first Super Cup

Published on 23/07/2015

Champions AA Gent have won the Super Cup – the Belgian version of the Community Shield in England – beating Club Brugge 1-0 with a last-gasp effort.

AA Gent had 14 chances, compared to 2 for Bruges, although Bruges claimed a penalty on 3 different occasions and could have got one in the first half when newcomer Diaby was fouled. The match looked set to end in a goalless draw, until winger Moses Simon set up a nice effort in the last 5 minutes, passing on the ball to Laurent Depoitre who made it 1-0 for Ghent with a thundering shot.
