Jacob Mulenga scored for FC Utrecht 20 minutes before the final whistle; Sjoerd Overgoor scored the equaliser for De Graafschap just three minutes before the end of regular playing time. In the series of penalties, both Jan-Paul Saeijs and Hugo Bargas failed to score for De Graafschap; Gianluca Nijholt did the same on behalf of FC Utrecht. His team mate Tim Cornelisse eventually scored the deciding goal.
