Black Stars winger Joseph Painstil was once again instrumental for KRC Genk in their 3-1 comeback win over Club Brugge. The former Tema Youth player capped off his brilliant performance with a goal.
Genk stretched their lead on the league table to three points after an emphatic victory over Brugge in a remarkable comeback at the Cegeka Arena.
Brugge broke the deadlock of the match as early as the 9th minute after experienced midfielder Hans Vanaken connected a pass from Andreas Skov Olsen.
Colombia international defender Daniel Munoz drew the hosts level moments later with a powerful header after meeting a cross from Gerardo Arteaga.
USA defender Mark McKenzie got Genk into the lead for the first time in the game in the early stages of the second half after being assisted by Tresor Ndayishimiye.
Paintsil, with his 15th goal of the season, rounded off the emphatic victory for Genk after he pounced on a loose ball inside the penalty area.
The 25-year-old had scored earlier in the game but his effort was ruled for offside after a VAR review.
Paintsil has 15gls and 12 assist in 31 appearances this campaign.
