But two quick strikes from Smail Prevljak and Jens Cools turned the tie in favour of KAS Eupen.

However, Sint Truiden responded with two goals courtesy Samuel Asamoah in the 42nd and 45th minute respectively.

Asamoah completed his hat-trick in the 63rd minute but his joy was cut short after referee Christof Dierick brandish his second yellow card in the game for partially pulling his shirt over his head, after he had been given a caution in the 52nd minute.

USA international Chris Durkin sealed the victory for Sint Truiden with a 95th minute goal to send their fans at the Stayen Stadium into jubilant mood.

Sowah picked a card in the 67th minute but played the entire duration of the match.
