OSS'20-FC Twente a few seconds ago


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 do 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 against the Eredivisionist.

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

Capelle-NEC a few seconds 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:


Bronkhorst, Marquez, Guth, Verdonk;

Clean, Fat, Brown;

Tavsan, Akman, Okita.

Almere City-Go Ahead Eagles a few seconds 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:


Van Vlerken, Leeuwin, Helstrup, Poll;

Alhaft, Receveur, Smeets, Van Hoeven;

Duijvestijn, Pouwels.

Lineup Go Ahead Eagles: 


Deijl, Nauber, Bakker, Kuipers;

Bourhane, Rommens, Brouwers;

Cordoba, Cardona, Heil.

OSS'20-FC Twente a few seconds 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.

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 a few seconds ago


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.

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 a few seconds 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: 


Van Ewijk, Dresevic, Bakker, Kaib;

Kongolo, Halilovic, J. Veerman;

Musaba, H. Veerman, Van der Heide.

OSS'20-FC Twente a few seconds 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.

15' GOAL FC Twente!


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 a few seconds 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 combi', which was imposed by the municipality of Oss.

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 amateur club from Brabant created the first danger via Jos Pelter, but his shot ended in the side net.

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 a few seconds 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 Brabant and does the team of trainer Ron Jans exploit the class difference?

OSS'20-FC Twente a few seconds 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 a few seconds 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 a few seconds 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 a few seconds 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: 


Troupee, Pröpper, Pleguezuelo, Narrow;

Bosch, Ugalde, Zerrouki;

Limnios, Van Wolfswinkel, Misidjan.

KNVB Cup a few seconds 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.
