Othman Boussaid made the opening goal for Jong FC Utrecht against Roda JC just before half-time. The Belgian midfielder pulled in and curled the ball into the far corner.
Fifteen minutes before the end, the visitors were close to the equalizer with a shot on the post by Fabian Serrarens. On the other hand, it was hit a few minutes later. Tim Pieters mercilessly punished Xander Lambrix’s loss of possession.
