82 'Volendam really still believes in it and rightly so.

In the meantime, NAC is getting a bit nervous and is sloppier on the ball.

The visitors still have a good ten minutes to do something about this 3-1 position.

Or will it still be exciting?

Volendam does something back out of nowhere and lives a bit again.

The visitors are not only behind 2-0, but have also hardly created anything.

34 minutes ago

After a corner, the ball remains in the whack and Adiléhou reacts the fastest: the defender shoots the ball with the left in the far corner.

32 'Volendam is getting into the game a bit better.

The visitors are more often on the ball and more often to be found at half of NAC.

We still have to wait for the first really big opportunity for the formation of trainer Wim Jonk.

Earlier this season, NAC won 3-0 at home against Volendam.

At the time, Mounir El Allouchi and Sydney van Hooijdonk were (twice) accurate for the formation from Breda.

Moïse Adiléhou is completely free with a corner and can shoot the ball with a volley against the ropes from about seven meters, but his shot goes wide.

22 'New opportunity for visitors.

Boy Deul can continue like this and wants to shoot with the left from about fifteen meters, but he is defended just in time by two players from NAC.

21 'We are halfway through the first half and it is still 0-0 at NAC Breda-FC Volendam.

There have not been any great opportunities yet, so the current standings are only logical.

NAC has more of the ball, but is not really able to find holes in the close-knit rearguard of the visitors.

an hour ago

14 'NAC also shoots between the posts for the first time.

Thom Haye does that from a distance, but his shot ends up on the fists of Volendam goalkeeper Nordin Bakker.

NAC last played in the Eredivisie in 2019.

The team from Breda then finished eighteenth and relegated directly to the Kitchen Champion Division.

It has been a little longer for FC Volendam.

The team from North Holland finished eighteenth in 2009 and has played at the second level in the Netherlands ever since.

9 'There is the first possibility of the match and it is striking enough for the visitors.

After a cross from the left, Martijn Kaars can put his foot against the ball, but NAC goalkeeper Nick Olij can easily turn the bet.

2 hours ago

8 'NAC dominates in the opening phase and has more than 75 percent possession of the ball.

Volendam can currently only limit itself to lurk on the counter, but the visitors often lose the ball again quickly.

2 hours ago

4 'No big chances in the opening phase yet.

NAC can be found more in half of Volendam and now also gets a corner, but that does not pose any danger either.

We are on our way in Breda!

NAC of Volendam today qualifies for the semi-finals of the play-offs for a ticket to the Eredivisie.

2 hours ago

The winner of NAC-Volendam will play against the number sixteen of the Eredivisie next Thursday at 9 p.m.

NAC and Volendam are the numbers five and six of the regular season in the Kitchen Champion Division.

Both clubs won the home game in the previous matches this season.

On December 18 it became 3-0 for NAC in Breda and Volendam won 2-1 at home on March 19.

The score:

5. NAC Breda 38-



6. FC Volendam 38-

Good to know

The confrontations in the post-competition this year are about one game instead of two.

The home team is the club that has finished highest in the regular competition.

So today there is a decision on all three duels in the first round.

Away goals do not count double and in case of a tie we will therefore extend.
