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 Mike van der Hoorn's header from a penalty kick and 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-NEC · in 2 days

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, but 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.

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 a lot to be desired.

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

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.

45' GOAL Feyenoord!


Completely against the ratio 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.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

44 'Adam Maher is allowed to build up for the free kick of about 25 meters, but the FC Utrecht midfielder is certainly not convincing.

The weak bet is easy prey for goalkeeper Justin Bijlow.

Feyenoord is again unscathed.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

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

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

Higler has his business full on this duel.

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.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · 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.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

27 'There is the first serious chance for Feyenoord.

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

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

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.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · 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 fly in this duel.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · 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.

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.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · 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.

Penalty for FC Utrecht!

What is happening here?

Referee Dennis Higler points to the dot.

Anastasios Douvikas tries to lash out after a quick takeover and is slightly thrown off balance by Tyrell Malacia.

Higler thinks it's enough for a penalty, but that seems rather severely punished.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

11 'It goes almost completely wrong there for Feyenoord and in particular Tyrell Malacia.

The left back plays the ball in his own penalty area without looking back at Luis Sinisterra and he had not counted on that at all.

With a good sliding, attacker Sinisterra prevents a dangerous situation.

Feyenoord is put with its back against the wall by FC Utrecht.

6 'FC Utrecht grabs Feyenoord by the throat from the kick-off, to the satisfaction of the fanatical public in Utrecht.

The team of trainer René Hake has not yet become really dangerous, especially because the passing is rather sloppy.

FC Utrecht-Feyenoord · in 2 days

5 'There Feyenoord becomes dangerous for the first time in Stadium Galgenwaard.

After a flowing attack, the ball lands at the feet of Alireza Jahanbakhsh, who decides to give a cross to the strong Bryan Linssen.

Linssen does get his head against the ball, but he does not make an attempt on goal.

Besides, he was already offside.

Slot confirms temporary departure of Bozeník

Trainer Arne Slot confirms to


that Robert Bozeník is on his way to Fortuna Düsseldorf.

"He is now undergoing a medical examination there. It is a good solution for him. He had a difficult season last year. I gave him the chance from the beginning, but I see that it is difficult for him. Then you have to be honest are to each other, and then I think the best solution is for him to go to a new environment and play a lot there. We hope to get him back better next year."

At FC Utrecht, trainer René Hake has put his hand in the grab bag, because the position of the Domstedelingen has changed in no fewer than four places.

Mike van der Hoorn, Simon Gustafson, Moussa Sylla and Anastasios Douvikas get a basic place.

This is at the expense of Mark van der Maarel, Othman Boussaid, Adrián Dalmau and Gyrano Kerk.
