FC Emmen did excellent business on Saturday in the fight against relegation from the Eredivisie.

The last player recorded the second victory in a row against FC Utrecht: 0-1.

FC Emmen was particularly strong in the first half.

In fact, the visitors soon took the lead.

Sergio Pena hit the mark in the fourteenth minute and thus only scored the first away goal of FC Emmen in the Eredivisie in 2021.

After that FC Emmen missed a number of good opportunities to double the score before half time.

Miguel Araujo hit the alert goalkeeper Eric Oelschlagel with a header and Adzic aimed with his head just wide.

Just before the break, FC Utrecht was dangerous for the first time with a header from Tommy St. Jago, but in the second half they had a different approach.

Gyrano Kerk had the 1-1 on his shoe, but he saw his bet stopped by keeper Michael Verrips.

FC Emmen eventually held their ground and gave last week's 3-2 victory against PEC Zwolle, the first of the season after 23 rounds, a fitting continuation.

The team is only two points behind ADO Den Haag and Willem II.

FC Utrecht lost for the first time in six matches.

The team, which set a club record in the Eredivisie last week by winning no less than 0-6 against Willem II, is still in seventh place.
