Mbokani’s brace powers Royal Antwerp past Gent

Dieumerci Mbokani got a brace in Royal Antwerp’s 3-2 victory against Gent in Thursday’s Belgian First Division A game.

The 33-year-old continued his outstanding form in front of goal, scoring twice to take his tally to 13 strikes in 15 league appearances this season.

After Roman Yaremchuk put the visitors in front in the 21st minute, Mbokani then levelled for Laszlo Boloni’s men four minutes later, off Ivo Rodrigues’ assist.

In the 33rd minute, Lior Refaelov restored the lead to the Great Old before the Democratic Republic of the Congo international completed his brace in the 48th minute.
