PEC Zwolle-FC Utrecht a few seconds ago

In addition to the backlog at halftime against PEC, there is even more bad news for FC Utrecht.

Captain Willem Janssen, who is just making his return to the base after a long injury, has to leave the field halfway through the first half with an apparent hamstring injury.

Vitesse suffers second loss of points against Groningen

Vitesse has lost


for the second time this Eredivisie season.

The Arnhemmers do not come further than 1-1 when visiting FC Groningen.

The team of Thomas Letsch even falls behind via a nice long shot by Patrick Joosten, but a smart free kick by Oussama Tannane enables Loïs Openda to equalize.

In the second half, both teams no longer score, which is an achievement in itself in the case of Armando Broja.

The nineteen-year-old Albanian has the winning goal on his shoe, but shoots open goal.

PEC Zwolle-FC Utrecht 7 minutes ago


It is that there is no audience, otherwise we would have written that PEC Zwolle and FC Utrecht are presenting the spectators an abominable match.

However, that will be a concern for the home team, because they are looking for the dressing room with a 1-0 lead before half-time.

A shot from Mustafa Saymak just lands through the back of Django Warmerdam and makes the difference for the time being.

Goal FC Utrecht rejected!

Ramselaar thinks he can punish a mistake by Zetterer, who completely misses the ball, and put the equalizer on the board.

After intervention of the VAR, however, the hit is rejected, because the Utrecht attacker started from an offside position.

Ramselaar himself is furious, although that will mainly be frustration about the poor playing of him and his team.

PEC Zwolle-FC Utrecht 24 minutes ago

32 'GOAL PEC Zwolle!


Via an unadulterated situation, which completely fits in the image of the match, PEC takes the lead.

Mustafa Saymak lashes out from a distance and sees his bet fly over Maarten Paes with a bow via two Utrecht defenders and end up in the goal.

It will probably be Django Warmerdam's own goal, as the left back is the last to change direction with his back.

PEC Zwolle-FC Utrecht 25 minutes ago

PEC Zwolle and FC Utrecht don't bake much of it in the first half hour.

Both teams are very sloppy, but try to assert themselves in the duels.

That makes for a messy game, in which no big chances can be noted.

FC Groningen-Vitesse 28 minutes ago

Broja is very disappointed with his missed opportunity.

The hopeless miss of Armando Broja in the picture.

Because the Albanian does not have his sights on, Vitesse is still chasing the lead.

FC Groningen does little else in the second half than stop.

FC Groningen-Vitesse 36 minutes ago

63 'Wow, what a miss from Broja, who should have put Vitesse ahead here.

The attacker does everything right after being sent off on the edge of offside, passes Padt with a nice cut, but then shoots hopelessly in front of an empty goal.

Did the Albanian feel a little too easy about that after doing the tricky part?

PEC Zwolle-FC Utrecht one hour ago

At PEC Zwolle, Kenneth Paal is back in the base for the first time since September 26.

The left back was out for some time due to a corona infection, but is now completely back.

For FC Utrecht captain Willem Janssen, his last starting place was a lot longer ago.

That was on January 17, 2020, surprisingly enough in the previous edition of PEC-FC Utrecht.

Since then he was no longer at the kick-off of an Eredivisie match due to injuries and the corona crisis.
