Zulte Waregem's good start to the season continued on Sunday when they beat Gent 3-1 to move up to second in the Belgian Pro League.
Zulte Waregem were looking to make it two wins out of two in the Belgian Pro League when they played host to Gent on Sunday.
Zulte beat Standard Liege last week and picked up from where they let off early on when a cross from the right-hand side by M'Baye Leye was turned in by Aleksandar Trajkovski after just eight minutes.
Gent looked out of sorts and found themselves 2-0 on the stroke of half-time when they gave the ball away, Franck Berrier scoring Zulte's second of the match.
The home side wrapped up the win just after half-time, Berrier with an accurate finish from the edge of the area which left Gent keeper Sergio Padt with no chance.
Gent's afternoon continued to get worse when Mamoutou N'Diaye was given a straight red card for kicking out at Sammy Bossut, although he didn't appear to make much contact with the Waregem keeper.
The strange refereeing decisions continued when Gent were awarded a penalty when Jordan Remacle was brought down inside the box by Bossut.
Remacle dusted himself off to slot the spot kick home.
Just when Gent thought there luck was turning the found themselves reduced to nine men, Cesar Arzo getting his second yellow card as Zulte ran out 3-1 winners to move up to second in the standings.
