Capelle-NEC a few seconds ago

42' GOAL NEC!

0-2

Fortuna Sittard-TOP Oss a few seconds ago

39' GOAL Fortuna Sittard!

2-0



Fortuna Sittard seems to have an easy evening against TOP Oss.

George Cox doubles the lead for the home team with a nice long shot.

The ball pops into the right corner.

OSS'20-FC Twente 2 minutes 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 6 minutes 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.

6 minutes ago

OSS'20-FC Twente 7 minutes 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 11 minutes 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 16 minutes 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 22 minutes 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.

AFC sc Heerenveen 23 minutes ago

18' GOAL AFC!

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.

23 minutes ago

OSS'20-FC Twente 26 minutes 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 34 minutes 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 37 minutes 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 38 minutes ago

60 'Ricky van Wolfswinkel gets a dot of a chance at 0-2.

The striker, usually so accurate, is completely free at the far post and has the ball for the header, but he works wide.

How is it possible!

KNVB Cup 40 minutes ago

The ball also rolls in twelve other matches in the TOTO KNVB Cup.

These duels are on the way:



  • Achilles Veen-GVV Unitas

  • ADO'20-Barendrecht

  • AFC sc Heerenveen

  • Almere City-Go Ahead Eagles

  • Capelle-NEC

  • The Treffers-Rijnsburg Boys

  • Westlandia-Excelsior Maassluis

40 minutes ago

OSS'20-FC Twente 40 minutes ago

57 'There is the greatest chance for OSS'20 on the equalizer against FC Twente.

Julian Calor nicks the ball from Casper Staring on the edge of the penalty area and decides to equalize.

His bet is only a meter over Lars Unnerstall's goal.

FC Twente's game after the break drops to a dubious level.

OSS'20-FC Twente 1 hour ago

Kick off! 

The ball rolls again in Oss for the second half of OSS'20-FC Twente.

Can OSS'20 still provide a stunt against FC Twente?

The tukkers only lead 0-1 in Oss and can therefore afford little in the TOP Oss stadium.

GVVV-Sparta Rotterdam 1 hour ago

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.

Fortuna Sittard-TOP Oss 1 hour ago

Fortuna Sittard will also be in action tonight.

As one of the few clubs in the Eredivisie, the Limburgers are allowed to play in their own stadium, because they compete against a professional club, in this case Keuken Kampioen Division club TOP Oss.

The team of trainer Sjors Ultee could use some confidence after the bad start in the Eredivisie.

These are the eleven names that will compete against TOP.



Line-up Fortuna Sittard: 

Van Osch;

Ferati, Angha, Pinto, Cox;

Tekie, Johansson, Rienstra;

Duarte, Seuntjens, Hansson.

OSS'20-FC Twente 1 hour ago

Peace! 

OSS'20 can still hope for a cup stunt against FC Twente after 45 minutes of football in the Frans Heesen Stadium.

The visitors from Enschede lead halfway through a world goal by Ramiz Zerrouki, but then Ricky van Wolfswinkel misses a penalty and the club from the third division bravely stands up against the Eredivisionist.

Thus it is 'only' 0-1 in Oss.

an hour ago

Capelle-NEC 1 hour ago

NEC seems to be facing the easiest evening of all clubs in the Eredivisie.

The Eredivisionist from Nijmegen will take on Capelle tonight, which plays in the main division, the third amateur level.

NEC currently has very different concerns, after the fan riots and the announcement that it can only play its home games in an empty Goffert stadium.

That may work to Capelle's advantage.

And another plus for Capelle: NEC trainer Rogier Meijer chooses no fewer than six other names than last Sunday against FC Twente.



NEC line-up:

Vukovic;

Bronkhorst, Marquez, Guth, Verdonk;

Clean, Fat, Brown;

Tavsan, Akman, Okita.

Almere City-Go Ahead Eagles 1 hour ago

Almere City-Go Ahead Eagles is on paper perhaps the best poster on this packed cup evening.

The ambitious Almere dreams of the Eredivisie existence of Go Ahead Eagles, but the sober reality is that the Flevolanders occupy the penultimate place in the Kitchen Champion Division.

And so trainer Gertjan Verbeek is under high tension in the polder.

Go Ahead Eagles, on the other hand, has done things well and is tenth in the Eredivisie.



Set-up Almere City:

Woud;

Van Vlerken, Leeuwin, Helstrup, Poll;

Alhaft, Receveur, Smeets, Van Hoeven;

Duijvestijn, Pouwels.



Lineup Go Ahead Eagles: 

Noppert;

Deijl, Nauber, Bakker, Kuipers;

Bourhane, Rommens, Brouwers;

Cordoba, Cardona, Heil.

OSS'20-FC Twente 1 hour ago

35 'After Ricky van Wolfswinkel's miss from 11 meters, OSS'20 is almost on the same level!

Lars Unnerstall has to tap Joep van der Velden's shot over his own goal to prevent the 1-1.

In the ensuing corner kick, the German goalie again saves on a bet by a player from the amateur club, who clearly drew confidence from the missed penalty.

OSS'20-FC Twente 1 hour ago

34 '

FC Twente misses a penalty! 

Ricky van Wolfswinkel goes behind the ball after he has decorated the penalty kick, and so the age-old football law applies.

He shoots the ball high.

What a miss from the usually so cool frog.

OSS'20-FC Twente 1 hour ago

33' 

Penalty for FC Twente! 

Referee Martin Pérez rightly points to the dot when Ricky van Wolfswinkel is knocked down by Jari van Ginkel.

FC Twente can reach 0-2 in Oss after more than half an hour.

an hour ago

OSS'20-FC Twente 1 hour ago

29 'Another nice opportunity for FC Twente.

Jesse Bosch has the ball for the shot after a good cross by Dimitrios Limnios, but the midfielder shoots it wide.

After half an hour it is still only 0-1 in Oss.

AFC-sc Heerenveen 2 hours ago

Henk Veerman back in the starting eleven Heerenveen


Just like FC Twente, Sc Heerenveen has to visit an amateur club and the Frisians have a harder job than FC Twente.

The team of trainer Johnny Jansen will visit AFC, one of the best clubs in the second division, the highest amateur level in the Netherlands.

Coach Jansen leaves nothing to chance against the team from Amsterdam, where former professional football players Robbert Schilder, Thomas Verhaar and Kenny Teijsse are under contract, and sends his best eleven onto the field.

Henk Veerman returns to striker after a difference of opinion.



Heerenveen line-up: 

Mous;

Van Ewijk, Dresevic, Bakker, Kaib;

Kongolo, Halilovic, J. Veerman;

Musaba, H. Veerman, Van der Heide.

OSS'20-FC Twente 2 hours ago

22 'Gijs Smal can make the decision in Oss seven minutes after Ramiz Zerrouki's opening goal, but the attempt by the left back of FC Twente is turned by the goalkeeper of OSS'20, Rick van der Leest.

OSS'20-FC Twente 2 hours ago

15' GOAL FC Twente!

0-1



OSS'20 only lasts fifteen minutes against FC Twente before it has to take the first goal.

Goal scorer Ramiz Zerrouki does a very nice job.

He bowls the ball tightly into the intersection from about 30 meters.

Just before that, a player from OSS'20 is hit in the face, but referee Martin Pérez lets play continue.

FC Twente leads in Oss.

OSS'20-FC Twente 2 hours ago

The three hundred accompanying supporters from FC Twente have had to take the bus from Enschede and are certainly not happy about that.

They protest with a banner against the so-called bus combination, which was imposed by the municipality of Oss.

OSS'20-FC Twente 2 hours ago

9 'There are the first possibilities in the Frans Heesen Stadium in Oss.

Virgil Misidjan only appears in front of the goalkeeper of OSS'20 after an attack by FC Twente, but decides to put the ball wide while shooting seems more logical.

However, his pass ends up in the feet of a defender of OSS'20.

In the counterstroke, the Brabant amateur club created the first danger via Jos Peltzer, but his shot ended in the side net.

OSS'20-FC Twente 2 hours ago

3 'Jesse Bosch quickly tries to force a breakthrough in this cup match with the amateurs of OSS'20, but is far from succeeding.

In fact, his shot from a distance ends up against the billboards on the stadium facade.

Is this a harbinger?

OSS'20-FC Twente 2 hours ago

Kick off! 

The ball rolls in the Frans Heesen Stadium in Oss.

Can OSS'20 cause a new stunt in the cup tournament?

Or will FC Twente not be surprised in North Brabant and does the team of trainer Ron Jans exploit the class difference?

OSS'20-FC Twente 2 hours ago

FC Twente is making final preparations for the cup match against OSS'20, the first game on this packed cup evening.

After the long journey from Enschede, the team of trainer Ron Jans will quickly want to do business in Brabant.

OSS'20-FC Twente 2 hours ago

OSS'20 does not play its cup match against FC Twente at its own sports park De Rusheuvel, but in the stadium of TOP Oss.

The reason for this is that ESPN is broadcasting the match and the light installation at the sports park does not meet the requirements of the broadcaster.

A bitter pill for the Brabant amateur club.

OSS'20-FC Twente 2 hours ago

OSS'20 is one of the better amateur clubs in Sunday football.

The team of coach Bertran Kreekels currently occupies second place in the third division on Sunday.

Former professional football players Julian Calor (ex-Cambuur and former Vitesse), Tony de Groot (former TOP Oss) and Jos Peltzer (former RKC) play among the players from Brabant.

OSS'20-FC Twente 2 hours ago

FC Twente opens this packed cup evening with an away match against the amateurs of OSS'20, which will play in the third division on Sunday, the second amateur level in the Netherlands.

Trainer Ron Jans does not think too lightly about the duel in Oss and has lined up his best eleven players in the Frans Heesen Stadium, to which OSS'20 has moved.

Michel Vlap and Michal Sadílek are missing due to injuries.



FC Twente line-up: 

Unnerstall;

Troupee, Pröpper, Pleguezuelo, Narrow;

Bosch, Ugalde, Zerrouki;

Limnios, Van Wolfswinkel, Misidjan.

KNVB Cup 3 hours ago

Back to last night, the first night in the main tournament of the cup.

DVS'33 (Saturday's Third Division) and Spakenburg (Second Division) caused the biggest surprises in the cup tournament by beating FC Eindhoven and FC Dordrecht respectively, both playing in the Kitchen Champion Division.

It produced an old-fashioned cup atmosphere, especially in Ermelo.

KNVB Cup 3 hours ago

It is Wednesday and that means many matches in the first round of the TOTO KNVB Cup in this cup week.

Will we get another old-fashioned stunt from an amateur club in the cup tournament?
