Match Preview

Dury plays down clash Gent manager Francky Dury has played down the significance of his side's Europa League meeting with cross-border rivals Lille. Both sides lost their opening matches and defeat for either would already leave them adrift of their Group C rivals after just two games. While Dury admits his side need to get off the mark in their home opener, he does not believe defeat would spell the end of their campaign. "This is an important meeting, Lille and my team both need a win," he said. "But after only two games, I do not think we'll be eliminated from the race for qualification if we lose." Dury also believes his side, who lost 3-2 at Levski Sofia in their opener, will have the "patience to surprise" the visitors who will make the short trip up the E17 for the match. Lille were comfortable 4-1 winners earlier this month when they made a similarly brief trip to Ligue 1 neighbours Lens, but Dury does not expect his team to be so obliging. "I saw them score those four goals in Lens," he said. "The distance from Lille to Lens is almost the same to Gent - but I assure you that we will not concede four goals." Gent are set to be without Yaya Soumahoro due to a hamstring injury and Yassine El Ghanassy could take his place after returning to training this week. Lille, who boast teenage Belgian star Eden Hazard, have been in good form this season and are unbeaten in Ligue 1 after holding high-flying Toulouse to a 1-1 draw at the weekend. In fact, their 2-1 loss to Sporting Lisbon in their Group C opener is their only reverse in league and European action this term. Lille have never lost to Belgian opposition in European competition, while they have never met Gent in a continental competition.

Match Report

All square in Gent Gent and Lille were both left still looking for their opening Europa League Group C victory as they played out a 1-1 draw in Belgium. A pulsating contest looked on the cards when Stijn De Smet gave the hosts a sixth-minute lead and Pierre-Alain Frau equalised soon after. But that was as good as it got, with the draw leaving the sides joint last in the table on one point. Both lost their Group C openers and the loser tonight would have faced an uphill struggle to qualify. A fast start was no surprise, therefore, and De Smet capped it as early as the sixth minute when he fired home left-footed from 12 yards after Lille failed to deal with Randall Azofeifa's free-kick. But the visitors, whose only loss this season came against Sporting Lisbon in this competition, were level 14 minutes later. Frau was the scorer, sending the ball into the top corner of the net. Mickael Landreau was almost caught out by Azofeifa's 22nd-minute corner, while Yassine El Ghanassy sent an effort wide as Gent tried to regain the lead. But despite both side's best efforts, the remainder of the first half passed largely without incident barring yellow cards for Yohan Cabaye, Azofeifa and Idrissa Gana Gueye. The lack of goalmouth action continued after the interval, De Smet breaking the monotony when he cracked a 25-yard strike straight at Landreau. A series of substitutions briefly promised to ignite proceedings, one new arrival Yao Gervinho testing Bojan Jorgacevic's handling from long range. Jorgacevic also comfortably held Florent Balmont's speculative effort but it was not until seven minutes from time until either side looked like finding a winner. Gent substitute Zlatan Ljubijankic forced an uncomfortable save from Landreau and although Azofeifa also had a late sight of goal, the match petered out to a draw.
