FC Twente wins fourth consecutive victory
FC Twente has also won its fourth match in the Premier League.
The Enschede club beat opponent VVV-Venlo 4-1 in a home game. As a result, last year’s number two is now in the lead. FC Twente players Bryan Ruiz, Luuk de Jong and Marc Janko scored a goal each during the first half, while Ahmed Musa scored VVV’s only goal. After half time, birthday-boy Luuk de Jong scored his second goal of the match, bringing the final score to 4-1 for the Enschede squad.
RKC Waalwijk has won its encounter with NAC Breda. The RKC squad beat the Breda team 2-1 in a home game, scoring its second victory in a row. However, after four rounds NAC Breda is still waiting for its first victory. RKC player Evander Snow was the first to score only ten minutes into the first half. In the final phase of the match, substitute Adil Auassar scored RKC’s second goal and Anthony Lurling scored for NAC. In Nijmegen, NEC also won the second home game of the season. Coach Alex Pastoor’s squad beat Heracles Almelo 2-1. NEC was already firmly in the lead after only eight minutes thanks to goals by Lasse Schöne and Nick van der Velden. Glynor Plet scored a goal for Heracles just before half time, but the Almelo team was unable to create any more opportunities after that. NEC saw the return of goalie Gabor Babos after Jasper Cillesen’s transfer to Ajax.
Rodney Sneijder immediately proved his worth to his new employer FC Utrecht. A goal by the mid-fielder, who was leased from Ajax, helped the Utrecht team beat Roda JC 3-1. A goal by Mads Junker initially put the Limburg squad in the lead, but Tommy Oar scored the equaliser just before half-time. In the second half, goals by Sneijder and Jacob Mulenga decided the match in favour of the home team.
