Ajax, Feyenoord And PSV Record Wins In Second Match Round
Feyenoord had a difficult afternoon in the Rotterdam derby at Excelsior. After a pass by Tonny Vilhena Jean-Paul Boetius handed the reigning champions a 1-0 win.
Also on Sunday PSV booked their second win of the season as well. Steven Bergwijn opened the scoring at NAC in Breda and after the equalizer from Thierry Ambrose (penalty) goals by Marco van Ginkel, Hirving Lozano and Jorrit Hendrix brought PSV the 4-1 win.
Ajax clinched only their first official win of the season under new coach Marcel Keizer. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar played up front instead of Kasper Dolberg at home against FC Groningen and the 34-year-old veteran answered the trust of Keizer with the first goal, a header.
Hakim Ziyech doubled the scoring just after half-time and after Oussama Idrissi put one back for Groningen substitute Lasse Schone smashed home the goal and secured the 3-1 victory in Amsterdam.
Also on Sunday FC Utrecht claimed their second win, 2-0 against Willem II. On Saturday VVV-Venlo beat FC Twente 2-1 in Enschede and on Friday Vitesse defeated Roda JC 3-1 in Kerkrade.
