FC Twente booked a resounding victory in the Eredivisie on Saturday evening. Coach Ron Jans’ team was too strong for PEC Zwolle, partly due to defensive fumbling from Thomas Lam and a beautiful volley by Wout Brama. FC Groningen won 2-1 against VVV-Venlo without Arjen Robben.

Groningen without Robben along VVV

FC Twente, which was eliminated by De Graafschap (3-1) midweek in the TOTO KNVB Cup, took the lead against PEC after five minutes thanks to a hit by Queensy Menig. The attacker intercepted a poor pass from captain Lam and shot the ball between the legs of PEC goalkeeper Michael Zetterer.

After half an hour, Lam made another mistake. This time the defender played the ball back to Zetterer much too softly, allowing Danilo to take advantage and doubling the margin. In the 37th minute, Lam was replaced by Marc Doué.

Shortly before, Brama further increased the score by beautifully filling in a corner from the edge of the sixteen-meter area. The captain made his first league goal since September 24, 2016, when he scored against Ajax on behalf of PEC (5-1 defeat).

In the second half, Václav Cerný and Luka Ilic also scored for Twente. Cerný fired in shortly after half time on a pass from Danilo and Ilic drifted, one minute after he came in, goalkeeper Zetterer and determined the final score. In between, Eliano Reijnders saved the honor for PEC with a nice volley.

Thanks to the victory, Twente is currently third with fourteen points from seven games. PEC can be found in the middle bracket with six points.

FC Groningen booked the fourth league victory of the season against VVV. Daniël van Kaam found the net for the northerners after just over fifteen minutes, but after the intervention of the VAR the goal was rejected. A foul by Jørgen Strand Larsen preceded this.

In the 26th minute it was a hit for Groningen. After a cross from Damil Dankerlui was badly cleared by the VVV defense, Patrick Joosten shot the ball from the turn into the far corner.

Shortly after the break, Strand Larsen doubled the margin for the home team. The Norwegian striker simply tapped in after good preparatory work by Alessio Da Cruz. Deep in injury time, Georgios Giakoumakis did something back on behalf of VVV.

Robben was missing due to physical complaints at Groningen. The 36-year-old attacker did not train with the group in recent days.
