Ajax-Vitesse · in 2 days

9 'Ajax has launched like a rocket in the Johan Cruijff ArenA and impresses with beautiful combination football and aggressive hunting against the weakly playing Vitesse.

The team from Amsterdam seems to have learned their lesson after the defeat against FC Twente.

in 2 days

5' GOAL Ajax!


The match is less than five minutes old when Antony immediately breaks the spell in the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

The replacement for the passed Steven Berghuis promotes a nice heel from Noussair Mazraoui with a spike in the far corner to a goal.

in 2 days

Kick off! 

The ball rolls in Amsterdam.

That means that Ajax-Vitesse has started.

The kick-off at Heracles Almelo-NEC is yet to come because there is a hole in a goal.

After a delay of about three minutes, the first whistle also sounded.

Overmars thinks that Neres and Tagliafico will stay

Director of football affairs Marc Overmars cannot yet say whether Nicolás Tagliafico and David Neres will leave Ajax.

"I still don't know. We have made agreements with Tagliafico and we keep them. It can still happen. That also applies to Neres. It all goes a bit slower and harder. The spots are busy in the front. But the chance is small that he leaves."

Ajax-Vitesse · in 2 days

Sébastien Haller was again the subject of discussion last week because the record purchase would not leave its mark on Ajax's game enough.

Did the Ivorian have his sights set this afternoon?

With the last position games Ajax is warming up for the important home match against Vitesse.

Ten minutes left until kick-off in Amsterdam.

Ten Hag thinks Berghuis reserve turn is meaningless

According to trainer Erik ten Hag, it means nothing that Steven Berghuis starts on the bench in the home match against Vitesse.

"Antony is back and fit. In the previous game against Vitesse he played the whole left side drunk. I chose him especially for this game."

Ajax-Vitesse · in 2 days

Without the passed Steven Berghuis, Ajax is currently preparing for the home match against Vitesse.

After the draw against FC Twente, the team from Amsterdam must show recovery in the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

The last Feyenoord coach to lose for the first time within three matches was Fred Rutten in 2014/2015.

Rutten lost 1-2 to FC Utrecht in De Kuip.

Feyenoord lost its last two official games of the season in all competitions, after being unbeaten in the first seven games (W6-G1-V2).

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

Feyenoord suffers first league


under Slot

Feyenoord suffers its first league defeat against FC Utrecht under the new trainer Arne Slot.

The Rotterdammers rightly lose 3-1 to FC Utrecht.

Luis Sinisterra gives Feyenoord the lead just before the break, but FC Utrecht comes alongside before the interruption via Willem Janssen and runs to 3-1 in the second half via Moussa Sylla and Simon Gustafson (penalty kick).

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

86 'Guus Til, like many other Feyenoord players, is a shadow of himself today and you can see that in this attempt.

His weak effort is first cracked by captain Willem Janssen and then he shoots through the leg of an FC Utrecht player into the side net.

A final offensive is still lacking at Feyenoord.

in 2 days

80 'And another dot of a chance for FC Utrecht on the 4-1.

Moussa Sylla has his second goal of the afternoon on the boot, but he hits the ball over and wide.

Feyenoord now seems to be really going to bow in Stadion Galgenwaard.

in 2 days

79 'There it is even almost 4-1 for FC Utrecht.

Substitute Joris van Overeem keeps the overview on the back line and puts the ball nicely wide on Mimoun Mahi, who also came in, but his bet can still be turned by Justin Bijlow.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

Still fifteen minutes to play in Stadion Galgenwaard and FC Utrecht still bravely hold their own against Feyenoord with the 3-1 lead in their pocket.

A final offensive is still in the cards for the Rotterdam team, but the lack of clout seems to break up the team of trainer Arne Slot for the first time this season.

73 'Feyenoord must have seen it attackingly from Luis Sinisterra, but after his 0-1 FC Utrecht devised a plan to keep the graceful Colombian of the Rotterdam team from scoring.

That plan is simple: a siege in the area around the golden right leg of Sinisterra.

For now, the home team succeeds.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

71 'What an imposed chance for Bryan Linssen on the connecting goal.

The attacker has plenty of time and space to shoot Marcus Pedersen's low cross into Maarten Paes's goal, but half-falling he brushes the ball wide.

A missed opportunity for Feyenoord and especially Linssen.

NEC with trusted eleven against Heracles

NEC trainer Rogier Meijer holds on to the success formation that convincingly won against PEC Zwolle last Friday.

That means that budding crowd favorite Ali Akman is once again at the forefront of the Nijmegen attack.

NEC setup: 


Van Rooij, Marquez, Odenthal, El Karouani;

Schone, Proper, Duelund;

Okita, Akman, Bruin.

in 2 days

66 'What is suddenly happening here?

Referee Dennis Higler awards a penalty to Feyenoord after a sliding by Willem Janssen on Guus Til, but he again reverses his decision.

This time not on the advice of the VAR, but of the assistant referee along the line.

It's definitely not Higler's afternoon.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

65 'Feyenoord is still trying to do something about the 3-1 deficit at FC Utrecht, but clearly lacks the strength and conviction to be able to force something.

Thus, the likely arrival of mercenary Amad Diallo is not an unnecessary luxury.

Tannane passed again at Vitesse

The position of Vitesse is also known.

Oussama Tannane, the trendsetter of last season, is once again on the couch with the Arnhem team.

The attacking midfielder still wants to leave Thomas Letsch's team, but he has not yet found a new club.

Much to his own frustration, Letsch has been keeping him on the bench for weeks.

Not without success, because Vitesse reached the group stage of the Conference League on Thursday at the expense of the Belgian superpower Anderlecht.

Vitesse line-up:


Dasa, Oroz, Bazoer, Hajek, Wittek;

Bero, Gboho, Tronstad;

Frederiksen, Openda.

57 'Bryan Linssen has a beautiful piece of art in mind and it almost seems to work.

The attacker dives free on the right side of the FC Utrecht penalty area and tries to lift the ball over goalkeeper Maarten Paes.

That works, but the ball descends too slowly and ends up on the roof of the goal.

in 2 days

The FC Utrecht players are in ecstasy after Moussa Sylla's 2-1, which is soon followed by Simon Gustafson's 3-1 from the penalty spot.

FC Utrecht is normally no longer allowed to give this away in Stadion Galgenwaard.

in 2 days

51' GOAL FC Utrecht!


Simon Gustafson goes behind the ball himself and the Swedish Ice Rabbit makes no mistake from 11 meters.

He sends Justin Bijlow into the wrong corner and puts FC Utrecht on a comfortable 3-1 lead against Feyenoord, which threatens to suffer his first league defeat under trainer Arne Slot.

in 2 days


Penalty for FC Utrecht! 

Referee Dennis Higler again points to the dot and this time too Tyrell Malacia is at the base.

He knocks down Simon Gustafson and gives Higler another reason to whistle.

The VAR does not reverse the penalty this time.

48' GOAL FC Utrecht!


And whether the second half of FC Utrecht-Feyenoord offers immediate spectacle!

Moussa Sylla heads FC Utrecht ahead against Feyenoord immediately after the break.

The attacker, who replaces the absent Gyrano Kerk, extends a header from Mike van der Hoorn from a corner.

Goalkeeper Justin Bijlow has no chance.

Kick off! 

The ball rolls again in Stadion Galgenwaard for the second half of FC Utrecht-Feyenoord.

Does the second act offer as much spectacle as the first half?

Berghuis passed at Ajax, Antony plays

A striking change in Ajax's basic setup for the home match against Vitesse: Steven Berghuis was passed by trainer Erik ten Hag after the draw against FC Twente.

The coach chooses Antony as right winger.

The Brazilian recently returned from his gold Olympic Games in Tokyo and can do it right away for Ajax.

It is also striking that Nicolás Tagliafico, who is back from a suspension, starts on the bench.

Ajax line-up: 


Mazraoui, Timber, Martinez, Blind;

Alvarez, Klaassen, Gravenberch;

Anthony, Haller, Tadic.

Heracles Almelo and NEC will face each other at 2.30 pm in Erve Asito.

The home team could use a boost after the defeat against PSV and the draw against Sparta Rotterdam.

The promoted NEC has now got the good feeling after the victory over PEC Zwolle.

Heracles coach Frank Wormuth will soon send these eleven players onto the artificial grass field in Almelo.


up Heracles Almelo: 


Fadiga, Schoofs, Knoester, Roosken;

De la Torre, Vloet, Kiomourtzoglou;

Laurensen, Bakis, Basacikoglu.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

Captain Willem Janssen is thrilled after his equalizer deep in the first half against Feyenoord.

Mike van der Hoorn tries to fall into his arms.

in 2 days


There is never a dull moment in this edition of FC Utrecht-Feyenoord and that is also reflected in the score thanks to goals deep in the first half.

After Luis Sinisterra's surprising opening goal, FC Utrecht rightly equalized in the last minute of injury time via captain Willem Janssen.

FC Utrecht has the better of the game and stacks chance after chance, but the return leaves much to be desired.

Incidentally, after seeing the images, referee Dennis Higler reverses a penalty kick for the home team.

in 2 days

45+3' GOAL FC Utrecht!


On the stroke of half-time it is still equal in Utrecht and we can call that completely right.

Gernot Trauner misses Adam Maher's indirect free kick, allowing Anastasios Douvikas to easily put the ball wide on the detached Willem Janssen.

The captain simply slides in for an empty goal.

Galgenwaard Stadium explodes.

in 2 days

45' GOAL Feyenoord!


Completely against the proportions, Feyenoord takes the lead and that is entirely thanks to the individual class of Luis Sinisterra.

The Colombian left winger threatens, dribbles and then hits the short corner with his right leg.

FC Utrecht is presented with the bill for missing all those opportunities.

in 2 days

44 'Adam Maher is allowed to prepare for the free kick of about 25 meters, but the FC Utrecht midfielder does not do that convincingly.

The weak bet is easy prey for goalkeeper Justin Bijlow.

Feyenoord is again unscathed.

in 2 days

42 'Referee Dennis Higler is clearly haggling in this match.

He now suddenly gives Tyrell Malacia a yellow card, while the left back of Feyenoord played the ball in a sliding tackle about 25 meters from Justin Bijlow's goal.

Higler has his hands full with this duel.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

36 'Anastasios Douvikas gets a dot of a chance on the opening goal on behalf of FC Utrecht.

After Alireza Jahanbakhsh loses the ball, the ball comes through Quinten Timber and Simon Gustafson into the feet of the Greek striker, who then shoots sky high.

He should have done more with that.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

34 'Feyenoord is really lucky that it is not behind against FC Utrecht.

The home team has the better of the game and stacks chance after chance, but it is still 0-0 in Stadion Galgenwaard.

Trainer Arne Slot has to come up with a ruse.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days


Pole FC Utrecht! 

There FC Utrecht is very close to the lead against FC Utrecht.

Quinten Timber cuts free after a corner kick that has been deflected and lashes out with his left leg.

Through the body of Luis Sinisterra the ball bounces on the outside of the post.

In the rebound Moussa misses Sylla for an empty goal, but he was also offside.

in 2 days

The first half hour of FC Utrecht-Feyenoord has passed and so far this is the most talked-about moment in Stadion Galgenwaard.

Referee Dennis Higler reverses a penalty for FC Utrecht after seeing the images.

It is only along the side that Higler sees Anastasios Douvikas kicking into thin air and not being knocked over by Tyrell Malacia.

in 2 days

27 'There is the first serious chance for Feyenoord.

Alireza Jahanbakhsh places the ball neatly wide on the detached Orkun Kökçü on the edge of the penalty area and the Turkish midfielder immediately pulls the trigger.

FC Utrecht goalkeeper Maarten Paes has to stretch to tap the ball out of the corner.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

26 'This is the game that FC Utrecht likes to play in matches against the clubs from the traditional top three: defending and breaking out with great speed.

For example, striker Anastasios Douvikas is hidden in the depths, but he still lacks some speed.

in 2 days

23 'Referee Dennis Higler has his hands full with this match, because now Mike van der Hoorn and Luis Sinisterra are fighting each other.

After a sermon by Higler, the emotions have calmed down a bit, but the sparks are flying in this duel.

in 2 days

Feyenoord is having a particularly difficult time with FC Utrecht in the opening phase of the game in Stadion Galgenwaard.

The Rotterdammers have to watch patiently as the home team dictates the game and sets up one attack after another.

The formation of trainer Arne Slot has so far offered little in return.

in 2 days

15 '

Referee Dennis Higler reverses the penalty for FC Utrecht! 

Higler is convinced after seeing the images and still does not award a penalty to the home team.

The arbiter is then treated to a flute concert by Stadion Galgenwaard, where the images of the moment are shown on the big screen remarkably enough.

That has never been seen before.

in 2 days

14 'Referee Dennis Higler is called to the side by the VAR.

The video referee is also not convinced of a violation by Tyrell Malacia and a penalty for FC Utrecht and calls on Higler to watch the images.
