21:34 – The 22nd round has become an absolute battlefield in the highest parts of the Kitchen Champion Division. With Excelsior against De Graafschap and NAC Breda against FC Volendam; there were two real toppers on the program. However; both games ended in 0-0; which means that especially FC Emmen and ADO Den Haag can benefit.
Leader FC Volendam is having a great season. It hadn’t lost since August 13; and has racked up nine points in its last three games. However; the match against NAC was a topper in name only; as NAC is currently the number nine in the competition. With brand new addition Naoufal Bannis (rented from Feyenoord) in the starting line-up; just like in the previous game; it did not score.
Robert Mühren; who was in good shape; was also unable to prevent a draw. De Volendammer has scored five goals in the last five games and also provided four assists. It turned out not to be the round of the KKD top scorers anyway; because Excelsior revelation Thijs Dallinga also didn’t like it. In the match against De Graafschap; Excelsior had slightly the upper hand; but the runner-up could not take advantage of the leader’s loss of points. The Doetinchemmers remain in a disappointing seventh place.
Where ADO and Emmen did not play; the other Eredivisie relegation VVV-Venlo took on Jong PSV; but that ended in a fiasco. Last week; newcomer Nick Venema became the great hero; but it now went down 1-4 against the promises of PSV; partly due to four goals from top talent Johan Bakayoko. With that; the team of Ruud van Nistelrooij VVV (eleventh) has now passed and is in tenth place. Telstar in turn overcame MVV by beating them 2-1 and Roda JC also did good business (0-4 win over Almere City).
FC Eindhoven defeated Jong Utrecht 4-0 by goals from Jort van der Sande; Charles-Andreas Brym (2x) and Joey Sleegers and thus has a good eighth place.
