PSV-FC Groningen · a few seconds ago

Peace!

PSV does not score in-house in the first half against a stiff FC Groningen.

The Eindhoven team did manage to play three decent chances together, but Groningen goalkeeper Sergio Padt and the crossbar stood in the way of an opening goal.

The fans can now be heard clearly, but a few minutes ago it was very quiet in the Philips Stadium.

Both in Rotterdam and Eindhoven there is a deafening silence: a minute is spent on the death of Willy van der Kuijlen.

Sparta Rotterdam-VVV-Venlo a few seconds ago

While PSV hopes to take three points against Groningen in the battle for place two, the interests at the Castle are also enormous.

sc Heerenveen-PEC Zwolle · a few seconds ago

Past!

PEC records a 0-2 win on a visit to sc Heerenveen.

Under the watchful eye of two thousand fans, the Frisians cannot entertain, while PEC Zwolle scores twice via Pelle Clement and Bram van Polen.

sc Heerenveen-PEC Zwolle · a few seconds ago

90 'There are four more minutes extra time, but the match seems to be decided.

sc Heerenveen-PEC Zwolle · a few seconds ago

Not a best afternoon for the fans of Heerenveen, but perhaps after the final whistle there is still something to cheer for this young man.

sc Heerenveen-PEC Zwolle · a few seconds ago

80 'Can Heerenveen still bring back the tension in the match?

It doesn't seem like it for the time being, because early in the build-up the ball is lost to the people of Zwolle.

The moment when Bram van Polen's header ends up in goal beyond Erwin Mulder's reach.

sc Heerenveen-PEC Zwolle · a few seconds ago

72 'Just cheering, Van Polen is involved in a duel on the other side of the field, where he seems to pull his direct opponent to the ground.

Referee Rob Dieperink does not see a penalty kick in it and, to the incomprehension of Heerenveen coach Jansen, the VAR does not intervene either.

sc Heerenveen-PEC Zwolle · a few seconds ago

68 'GOAL PEC!

0-2



Bram van Polen extended his contract with PEC Zwolle earlier this week and he now doubles the lead of his team.

The captain is overlooked on a corner kick, after which he heads in.

Lineups!

 VVV saw competitor Willem II grab three points against RKC yesterday and so it is all hands on deck for the Venlo team.

He is replaced at the point of the attack by Jafar Arias.

sc Heerenveen-PEC Zwolle · a few seconds ago

53 'Bram Van Polen already has a yellow card in his pocket, but he is still leading the way.

The PEC captain has twice an excellent tackle on the ball.

Kick-off second half!

Two new faces at the kick-off of the second half: Arjen van der Heide replaces Benjamin Nygren at Heerenveen and Mike van Duinen enters the lines at PEC at the expense of Manuel Benson.

PSV-FC Groningen · a few seconds ago

Setup!

FC Groningen has the option of varying their playing style and seems to opt for a 5-3-2 line-up with two attacking fullbacks.

Arjen Robben will not return to his old team.

As a precaution, the attacker is missing from the match selection of the Groningers.



Groningen setup:

Padt;

El Hankouri, Te Wierik, Dammers, Itakura, Gudmundsson;

Dumfries, Teze, Viergever, Max;
