Den Bosch started the season strong with two wins, but tonight it turned out that Ajax was a very big size. Roy Kuijpers gave the hosts the lead in the first minute, but then Amsterdam scored the longest with two goals from Max de Waal and one from Nasi Onuvar. Kuijpers’ second goal in injury time was stats.
With De Graafschap – NAC Breda, perhaps the most interesting poster of this round was the show. The two teams competed for promotion last season, and both had a mixed start to the season. In addition, among the visitors was Ralph Seuntjens, who played for De Graafschap for the past two seasons and returned to Doetinchem.
Seuntjes, who had promised encouragement if he scored a goal, couldn’t stop NAC from losing 2-0 to his old team. Joe Konings and Devin Hayne took an interest in Doetinchem’s goals. De Graafschap now ranks sixth. NAC had a disappointing start to the season and is its 15th with two points from three games.
Michy Netello was the main star in the MVV’s 3-2 win over Helmond Sport. The 20-year-old Belgian signed a hat-trick. Gili Goslink scored two goals on behalf of the visitors. Excelsior drew 1-1 at home against FC Volendam. Thijs Dallinga gave the home team the lead just before the end of the first half and in first-half injury time later, Robert Morin entered the final score on the board.
The scene between Telstar and Roda JC looked like it was headed for a tie for a long time, after goals by Cas Dijkstra, Rachan Fernandez, Glenor Plate (Telstar), Nick Fospelt, Stefano Marzo and Shayan Emers (Rhoda). However, Fabian Serarins signed 3-4 in injury time. FC Dordrecht stayed 2-2 against Young FC Utrecht. Stijn Meijer and Seydine N’Diaye scored on behalf of the home team, and Nick Venema took care of Utrecht’s goals.
The match between ADO Den Haag and FC Emmen started with a half hour delay due to a broken light pole at Cars Jeans Stadium. The visitors from Emin won the confrontation between the two relegated teams. Jeredy Hilterman gave FC Emmen a two-stroke win. Vicente Besuijen did something in return on behalf of ADO.
