Eredivisie Wrap: Vitesse halt Twente run, Feyenoord secure first win

SoccerNews in Eredivisie 25 Aug 2013


Twente’s unbeaten start to the Eredivisie season came to an end on Sunday following a 1-0 defeat at Vitesse.

Michel Jansen’s side missed the chance to leapfrog PSV into second in the table as Mike Havenaar scored the only goal of the game midway through the first half, opening his league account for the campaign in the process.

Vitesse drew level with Twente following the victory, with no fewer than six clubs all tied on seven points with four games gone.

Feyenoord picked up their first league win of the season thanks to a 3-1 home success over NAC Breda.

Graziano Pelle proved to be the star of the show with a hat-trick to take his Eredivisie tally this term to five.

Pelle netted twice in as many first-half minutes before completing his treble seven minutes into the second half, before Joey Suk pulled one back for NAC Breda.

Go Ahead Eagles and nine-man Groningen produced a six-goal thriller at De Adelaarshorst as the sides played out a 3-3 draw.

Two bookable offences for Timo Letschert and a straight red card for goalscorer Krisztian Adorjan saw Erwin van de Looi’s side reduced to nine men.

A Tjaronn Chery strike for the visitors sandwiched between a Marnix Kolder brace ensured Go Ahead Eagles led 2-1 at the break. Further goals from Adjoran, Xandro Schenk and Genero Zeefuik completed the scoring.

Steve De Ridder’s brace helped Utrecht ended their wait for an Eredivisie win in the day’s other game.

De Ridder found the net twice in 12 second-half minutes to sink AZ Alkmaar 2-1.
