Nigerian duo Paul Onuachu and Cyriel Dessers were both on target in KRC Genk 5-2 heavy away defeat at newly-promoted K Beerschot V.A in the Belgian Jupiler.

Onuachu was on from the start and netted in the 19th minute to bring Genk level to 1-1 after Raphael Holzhauser put the hosts ahead inside the opening 15 minutes of the game.

The hosts however took the lead five minutes after the restart via Pierre Boursin before things got worse for Genk who had a man sent off just before the hour mark with Beerschot making the most of their numerical advantage as they scored again from the spot to make it 3-1 after the hour mark.

Dessers then replaced Onuachu afterward and the Super Eagles hopeful pulled one back from the spot on the 76th minute but the goal proved to be a mere consolation as the hosts scored two further goals to seal a 5-2 win leaving Genk in the bottom half of the table.

Dessers has now scored two goals in five league appearances, Onuachu also has two goals in four games.
