AZ Alkmaar remain six points behind Ajax in second after a comfortable 3-0 victory over ten-man FC Twente.

This week, Calvin Stengs was named in the provisional Netherlands squad and he was aiming to impress on Saturday evening in order to remain in Ronald Koeman’s plans.

The Oranje boss will have been impressed with the winger’s through ball on 18 minutes which set Myron Boadu through on goal. The striker was taken down just outside the box by Twente goalkeeper Joel Drommel, which earned him a straight red card.

From that point AZ Alkmaar laid siege to the Twente goal but the woodwork prevented Owen Wijndal on two occasions. Eventually on the stroke of half time, Pantelis Hatzidiakos made it 1-0 with an excellent strike into the top corner.

Ten minutes into the second half, Dani de Wit doubled the hosts lead from close range.

Boadu then sealed the comfortable victory in the 78th minute with a clipped finish over substitute keeper Jorn Brondeel.

AZ Alkmaar move two points clear of PSV Eindhoven and are currently the main challenger to Ajax. FC Twente remain in 10th.

Gakpo prevents third straight PSV loss at Sparta

Cody Gakpo scored a 90th minute equaliser as PSV Eindhoven struggled to a 2-2 draw at Sparta Rotterdam.

PSV went to Rotterdam looking to get their title challenge back on track after damaging defeats to both Utrecht and AZ Alkmaar. However, Mark van Bommel was once again without Donyell Malen and Steven Bergwijn, but Mohammed Ihattaren did start.

PSV had the first chance but Cody Gakpo just could not connect with a header from close range. Then in the sixth minute, Sparta hit the post through Ragner Ache.

In the 28th minute, the hosts did take the lead when Jeroen Zoet pushed Bryan Smeet’s shot into the path of Ache, who tapped in the opener.

PSV improved in the second half and in the 56th minute, Michel Sadilek equalised with a close range finish after Ritsu Doan was denied.

Two minutes later, Sparta regained their lead when Ache’s clever backheel set Mohamed Rayhi free in the box and the former PSV winger fired past Zoet from a tight angle.

Sparta then failed to kill the game and in the first minute of injury time, Gakpo equalised. Ihattaren nearly netted a last second winner but his strike flew just over the bar.

PSV now sit eight points behind Ajax while Sparta are ninth.





RKC finally win against Heracles

It took 12 matches, but RKC Waalwijk finally tasted victory in the Eredivisie on Saturday. Heracles Almelo were defeated 2-0.

The two teams met in the KNVB Cup in midweek with Heracles coming out 4-3 winners. However, on Saturday, RKC Waalwijk got revenge as they finally got a win after ten losses and one draw so far in the league.

After 11 minutes, Sylla Sow cut inside from the wing before hammering a strike into the net to give RKC the lead.

The home side continued to dominate but they failed to kill the game until deep into injury time. Kevin Vermeulen found the bottom corner with a low strike.

The victory isn’t enough to move RKC off the bottom of the table, while Heracles are seventh.
