It was the All Africa Show in Belgium as the trio of Nigeria’s Emmanuel Dennis, and Senegal’s duo of Krepin Diatta and Mbaye Diagne found the back of the net as Club Brugge handed a crushing 4-0 defeat to Gent in Sunday’s Belgian First Division A encounter.
Emmanuel Dennis continued his incredible hot form in front of goal as he grabbed the Bruges’ third goal of the evening, a few days after netting a brace to help the Belgian giants hold Real Madrid to a 2-2 draw.
Philippe Clement’s men wasted to time in silencing the Buffalos as it took Hans Vanaken just 11 minutes to break the deadlock.
Soon after Senegal’s Diatta doubled Brugge’s lead to set the champions on their way to extending their unbeaten run to 16 matches in all competitions.
Shortly after the restart, Real Madrid’s nightmare Nigeria’s Dennis made it three before substitute Diagne completed the damage on the dot of 90 minutes.
Another Nigerian, David Okereke, who joined Brugge over the summer from Spezia in Italy, came in for Dennis in the 69th minute and it was he who provided the assist for Diagne’s late goal.
The convincing victory sees Club Brugge sit atop the Jupiler Lig with 23 points after nine matches.
