12 'PSV seems to be doing business quickly against VVV-Venlo, because the team from Eindhoven grab their opponent by the throat when the ball is immediately lost in the enemy half.

That's how trainer Roger Schmidt likes to see it.

According to that doctrine, the opponent must continuously gasp for breath.

8 'The proportions quickly become apparent in the Philips Stadium.

PSV dictates the game and VVV-Venlo limits itself to defending.

Fortuna-RKC · in 4 days

The most discussed moment of the first half of Fortuna Sittard-RKC Waalwijk was undeniably Sebastian Polter's equalizer for Fortuna Sittard.

The German seemed to be offside for a bit, but the linesman held his flag down and the VAR's offside lines overlapped.

And so the attacking party, Fortuna Sittard, got the advantage.

At RKC referee Marc Nagtegaal is the bitten dog.
