AFC-sc Heerenveen a few seconds ago

Henk Veerman, who made the 1-1 against the amateurs of AFC, does not feel like young field stormers after the late breakaway of Heerenveen in Amsterdam.

FC Groningen-Helmond Sport a few seconds ago

Kick off! 

The ball rolls back into the Euroborg for the second half of FC Groningen-Helmond Sport.

It is a carefree evening for FC Groningen and that is all thanks to Romano Postema, who was involved in all of the home team's goals with two goals and one assist.

Heerenveen escapes against amateurs AFC


Sc Heerenveen crawls through the eye of the needle in the first round of the cup tournament.

The Frisians win 1-2 against AFC after being more than fifty minutes behind against the second divisionist from Amsterdam.

Dalian Maatsen turned Good Enough sports park upside down in the eighteenth minute with the 1-0, but after Henk Veerman's equalizer fifteen minutes before the end, Filip Stevanovic made the liberating 1-2 for the team of coach Johnny Jansen.

GVVV-Sparta Rotterdam a few seconds ago

87' GOAL Sparta Rotterdam!

0-2



Vito van Crooij takes care of the liberating 0-2 for Sparta Rotterdam against the amateurs of GVVV.

The substitute shoots a free kick under the wall and thus helps Sparta to the second round of the cup tournament.

Apparently the concept of 'wall girder' has not yet reached Veenendaal.

AFC-sc Heerenveen a few seconds ago

Things go badly wrong at AFC-Heerenveen after a goal from the Frisians.

Part of the fencing at Good Enough sports park collapses under the weight of cheering supporters of SC Heerenveen.

It is not known if there were any injuries.

KNVB Cup a few seconds ago

With ten minutes to go, these are the standings to keep an eye on.

Do the amateurs of AFC and GVVV manage to win an extension against the Eredivisie clubs?



  • AFC Heerenveen 

    1-2

  • GVVV-Sparta Rotterdam 

    0-1

FC Groningen-Helmond Sport a few seconds ago

37' GOAL FC Groningen!

3-0



Stefan Postema is tonight the man at FC Groningen against Helmond Sport.

The striker can finally start in the base of trainer Danny Buijs and makes it completely true with his second goal of the evening.

Again the youngster easily shoots in the far corner.

AFC-sc Heerenveen a few seconds ago

79' GOAL sc Heerenveen!

1-2



Heerenveen still seems to be unscathed by the AFC amateurs, because within three minutes the team of coach Johnny Jansen turns the deficit into a lead.

Filip Stevanovic is the maker of the liberating second goal.

a few seconds ago

AFC-sc Heerenveen a few seconds ago

76' GOAL sc Heerenveen!

1-1



Sc Heerenveen reaches the same level in Amsterdam fifteen minutes before the end.

Shortly after the amateurs of AFC have headed the ball on the post, Henk Veerman of course scores the equalizer on the board.

The striker was passed last Saturday because in the eyes of trainer Johnny Jansen he delivered too little.

Almere City-Go Ahead Eagles a few seconds ago

70' GOAL Go Ahead Eagles!

0-2



Also in the cup tournament it will be nothing for the Almere City of trainer Gertjan Verbeek, although that is certainly no shame against Go Ahead Eagles.

The Eredivisionist from Deventer doubles the lead in Almere with a knockout goal.

Mats Deijl seems to be the goalscorer.

Capelle-NEC a few seconds ago

63' GOAL NEC!

0-3



There is no problem for NEC in Capelle and it is all done for the amateurs of Capelle.

Substitute Ole Romeny increases the margin to three for the team of trainer Rogier Meijer.

AFC-sc Heerenveen a few seconds ago

68 'Sc Heerenveen escapes an even bigger failure against AFC.

Splinter de Mooij, former top talent of Feyenoord, heads the ball on the crossbar.

Heerenveen then has to work the ball off the goal line to prevent the 0-2.

It looks like it will be a very nice evening for the amateurs of AFC.

FC Groningen-Helmond Sport a few seconds ago

21' GOAL FC Groningen!

2-0



Within a minute after Romano Postema's opening goal, FC Groningen doubles its lead against Helmond Sport.

This is preceded by a painful mistake by Helmond Sport defender Maxime De Bie.

He loses the ball to Postema, who then allows Daleho Irandust to score.

a few seconds ago

FC Groningen-Helmond Sport a few seconds ago

20' GOAL FC Groningen!

1-0



After twenty minutes FC Groningen breaks the ban in the Euroborg, where quite a few people have gathered for a cup match against Helmond Sport.

Romano Postema does a neat job.

GVVV-Sparta Rotterdam a few seconds ago

59' GOAL Sparta Rotterdam!

0-1



The amateurs of GVVV have lasted for almost an hour against Sparta Rotterdam, but then the 0-1 falls for Sparta Rotterdam.

Mario Engels finishes well after a good action and puts trainer Henk Fraser's team on a liberating lead in Veenendaal.

IJsselmeervogels-Excelsior a few seconds ago

59' GOAL Excelsior!

0-3



It's over with IJsselmeervogels against Excelsior.

The visitors come to 0-3 in Bunschoten-Spakenburg by a goal from Reuven Niemeijer.

Excelsior also appears to have nerves of steel in the cup.

AFC-sc Heerenveen a few seconds ago

A beautiful image from Amsterdam after Dalian Maatsen's opening goal against sc Heerenveen.

As a result, AFC still leads 1-0 against the Eredivisionist from Friesland.

A stunt hangs in the Amsterdam air.

IJsselmeervogels-Excelsior a few seconds ago

52' GOAL Excelsior!

0-2



There seems to be no cup surprise tonight in Bunschoten-Spakenburg.

Days after SV Spakenburg's 3-0 win against FC Dordrecht, neighbor IJsselmeervogels is 0-2 behind Excelsior.

Hugo Botermans makes his second evening for the Kralingers, who are leaders in the Kitchen Champion Division.

Fortuna Sittard-TOP Oss a few seconds ago

51' GOAL Fortuna Sittard!

3-0



Fortuna Sittard locks the game against Keuken Kampioen Division club TOP Oss after the break.

George Cox combines with Mats Seuntjens and then shoots in his second of the evening.

This season has not gone so easily for the team of trainer Sjors Ultee.

KNVB Cup a few seconds ago

Kick off! 

The ball rolls again in the twelve cup matches.

Can AFC hold onto the 1-0 lead against sc Heerenveen and GVVV perhaps hold out against Sparta Rotterdam?

FC Groningen-Helmond Sport has also started.

FC Groningen-Helmond Sport a few seconds ago

FC Groningen will kick off in the Euroborg in a few minutes for the cup match against Helmond Sport.

Trainer Danny Buijs is also ready for a success after the lousy start in the Eredivisie.



Line-up FC Groningen: 

Leeuwenburgh;

Sverko, Kasanwirjo, Van Hintum;

Dankerlui, Suslov, Van Kaam, EL Hankouri;

Ngonge, Postema, Irandust.

GVVV-Sparta Rotterdam a few seconds ago

Another score that raises eyebrows is the 0-0 at GVVV-Sparta Rotterdam.

The Eredivisionist from Rotterdam has started the season dramatically and that can also be seen at the Panhuis sports park in Veenendaal.

The team of coach Henk Fraser hardly creates any great chances and so the home team can still hope for a cup stunt.

AFC-sc Heerenveen a few seconds ago

It is rest at AFC-sc Heerenveen and that means that a thunder speech will sound in the dressing room of Heerenveen.

After 45 minutes of play, the Frisians are embarrassingly 1-0 behind the second divisionist from Amsterdam.

Dalian Maatsen has been the celebrated man with the home team so far.

Capelle-NEC a few seconds ago

Fortuna Sittard-TOP Oss a few seconds ago

2-0

The ball pops into the right corner.

OSS'20-FC Twente a few seconds ago

FC Twente is released unscathed in Oss


FC Twente reaches the second round of the cup tournament with great pain and effort.

The team of trainer Ron Jans quickly takes the lead via Ramiz Zerrouki against OSS'20, which will play in the third division on Sunday, but after Ricky van Wolfswinkel's missed penalty, things go from bad to worse for the tuckers.

OSS'20 is just not in a position to create great opportunities and swallows Zerrouki's 0-2 in the final phase.

OSS'20-FC Twente a few seconds ago

90+3' GOAL FC Twente!

0-2



It's over and out for OSS'20 against FC Twente.

The tukkers have plenty of time and space in the counterpunch after the home team has all players in the half of FC Twente and in the end Ramiz Zerrouki scores his second goal of the evening.

FC Twente is released in Brabant with a fright.

OSS'20-FC Twente a few seconds ago

89 'Everyone who cares about OSS'20 is crying out for a penalty when Daan de Bruijn tumbles over Lars Unnerstall.

Referee Martin Perez got it right.

He gives De Bruijn yellow for a schwalbe.

OSS'20 pulls out all the stops to force the equalizer.

The final offensive has begun.

FC Twente has to defend a narrow lead against the club from the third division.

A shameful performance by the team of trainer Ron Jans.

Fortuna Sittard-TOP Oss a few seconds ago

29' GOAL Fortuna Sittard!

1-0



Mats Seuntjens takes Fortuna Sittard in tow again.

The attacker scored his sixth goal of the season against TOP Oss.

AFC-sc Heerenveen a few seconds ago

21' sc Heerenveen gets a dot of a chance to equalize.

Henk Veerman, who after a reconciliation conversation with trainer Johnny Jansen is again in the attack, has the ball for the header, but his bet ends on the post.

Bad luck for the Frisians, who are embarrassingly behind against AFC.

Almere City-Go Ahead Eagles a few seconds ago

17' GOAL Go Ahead Eagles!

0-1



Go Ahead Eagles quickly takes the lead at Almere City, which is struggling in the Kitchen Champion Division.

Luuk Brouwers uses a penalty for the visitors from Deventer.

1-0



Is here the first cup stunt in the making on this Wednesday evening?

Second divisionist AFC takes the lead against Eredivisionist sc Heerenveen in any case.

Dalian Maatsen, former player of FC Den Bosch and MVV, opens the score for the team from Amsterdam.

For the time being, Heerenveen is being embarrassed at Sportpark Goed Enough.

OSS'20-FC Twente a few seconds ago

Another twenty minutes of play in Oss and it is still only 0-1 for FC Twente.

Can OSS'20 still come alongside in the Frans Heesen Stadium?

The visitors from Enschede make an uninspired impression in Oss, so it is now or never for the club from the third division.

Capelle-NEC a few seconds ago

5' GOAL NEC!

0-1



Is this a harbinger of a rain of goals in Capelle aan den IJssel?

NEC takes the lead against the local big league within five minutes.

Elayis Tavsan is the maker of the opening goal of the Eredivisionist from Nijmegen.

IJsselmeervogels-Excelsior a few seconds ago

5' GOAL Excelsior!

0-1



Excelsior, the frontrunner of the Kitchen Champion Division, is like a rocket from the starting blocks at second divisionist IJsselmeervogels.

After five minutes it is already 0-1 at sports park De Westmaat in Bunschoten-Spakenburg by a goal from Hugo Botermans.

OSS'20-FC Twente a few seconds ago

60' Ricky van Wolfswinkel krijgt een dot van een kans op de 0-2. De spits, doorgaans zo trefzeker, staat helemaal vrij bij de tweede paal en heeft de bal voor het inkoppen, maar hij werkt hem naast. Hoe is het mogelijk!

KNVB-beker · een paar seconden geleden

De bal rolt ook bij twaalf andere wedstrijden in de TOTO KNVB Beker. Deze duels zijn onderweg:

  • Achilles Veen-GVV Unitas
  • ADO'20-Barendrecht
  • AFC-sc Heerenveen
  • Almere City-Go Ahead Eagles
  • Capelle-NEC
  • De Treffers-Rijnsburgse Boys

  • IJsselmeervogels-Excelsior
  • Staphorst-Gemert
  • Westlandia-Excelsior Maassluis

OSS'20-FC Twente · een paar seconden geleden

57' Daar is de grootste kans voor OSS'20 op de gelijkmaker tegen FC Twente. Julian Calor snoept de bal op de rand van het strafschopgebied af van Casper Staring en besluit gelijk te schieten. Zijn inzet gaat maar een metertje over het doel van Lars Unnerstall. Het spel van FC Twente na rust zakt naar een bedenkelijk niveau.

OSS'20-FC Twente · een paar seconden geleden

Aftrap! De bal rolt weer in Oss voor de tweede helft van OSS'20-FC Twente. Kan OSS'20 nog voor een stunt zorgen tegen FC Twente? De tukkers leiden slechts met 0-1 in Oss en kunnen zich dus weinig veroorloven in het stadion van TOP Oss.

GVVV-Sparta Rotterdam · een paar seconden geleden

Finally, Sparta Rotterdam will visit the amateurs of GVVV tonight, who dangle desolately at the bottom of the second division, the highest amateur level in the Netherlands.

Speaking of confidence: trainer Henk Fraser is under high tension in Rotterdam after the dramatic start of the season by the Spartans.

The assistant of the Dutch national team can therefore use a success in the cup tournament.

Whether that will work in Veenendaal remains to be seen.

GVVV dragged out an extension against PSV on this synthetic turf pitch in 2019.



Sparta Rotterdam line-up: 

Okoye;

Jans, Vriends, Heylen, Pinto, Abels;

Masouras, Meijers, Goudmijn;

Thy, English.
