Belgian football team KAA Gent overcame Bulgarian PFC Levski Sofia and the harsh winter conditions on the stadium courtesy of Brazilian Wallace's goal 13 minutes from time in UEFA Europa League Group C.

Thus, the Belgian team clinched a revenge on the Bulgarian side, after dramatically losing with 2-3 on September 16 2010.

Gent, which already defeated section leaders Sporting Clube de Portugal last time out, rised from bottom to second in the group and stands a considerable chance of qualifying to the next round of 32, as they need only to avoid defeat against LOSC Lille M?tropole on 16 December.

Despite the heavy snow and the freezing cold on the Belgian stadium, Gent's winger El Ghanassy showed a fantastic performance, proving to be the main supply line for his side, but several intelligent touches failed to find a decisive strike in front of goal.

Levski's goalie Bozhidar Mitrev should also be proud of his display, saving a couple of decent goal opportunities.
