Genk, Cercle Brugge fight out draw

30 July 2012 03:48

Genk and Cercle Brugge could not be split on points last season, and they began this Belgian First Division term with a 3-3 draw on Sunday.

Both sides led during the contest at Genk's Cristal Arena, but neither could snare the three points, with all six goals coming before the hour mark in an entertaining opening to their respective seasons.

Brugge led on 14 minutes when Lukas Van Eeno struck, but a quick-fire brace from Christian Benteke put the home side in front by the 25th minute.

Igor Ventokele made it 2-2 when Rudy got the first of his two assists, before that man again teed up Van Eeno for his brace nine minutes after the interval to put Brugge ahead.

But their lead lasted a mere three minutes, as Jelle Vossen fired the equaliser on 57 minutes, to ensure Genk did not come out of the clash empty handed.

Fourth in the Belgian top flight last season, Gent got their season off to an ideal start, with a 2-0 home win over Lierse.

Shlomi Arbeitman scored a double at the Jules Ottenstadion in a perfect start to Gent's European aspirations, after they missed a berth in the continental competitions by a solitary point last season.

Finally, Zulte-Waregem stunned Standard Liege 1-0 in a brilliant away win, leading almost from the outset after Franck Berrier's goal on nine minutes.

Waregem finished in 13th place last season, compared to Liege's lofty fifth spot, and they kicked off their season in fine style with a clean sheet away at the Stade Maurice Dufrasne.
