Two Nigerians sent off as Club Brugge and Gent share spoils

Anderson Esiti and Emmanuel Dennis were both dismissed, as Club Brugge and KAA Gent settled for a 1-1 draw in the Jupiler Pro League on Sunday.

Esiti received his marching orders for a second booking, while Dennis received a straight red.

In an attempt to dribble past Arnaud Souquet down the flank, Dennis’ studs caught the Frenchman. The referee issued the Nigerian a yellow card, but after consulting VAR, he changed his decision — giving the winger a straight red.

Jonathan David headed the visitors in front off Alexander Sorloth’s delightful cross, only for Lois Openda to bundle in the equaliser to ensure a share of the spoils.
