For FC Twente, the number five, it was a painful evening. The Tukkers lost at home with 5-2 from reigning champion Jong Ajax, where Carel Eiting made his comeback after an ankle injury.
Twente quickly took the lead, but the visitors recovered and scored three times before half time. “Football, football!”, It sounded from the throats of irritated Twente supporters.
The second half, however, was not much better from Twente's point of view. Advisor Fred Rutten saw from the tribune how the home team was shaken by Jong Ajax. In the extra time, Twente defender Cristian Gonzáles also got a red card.
Leader Go Ahead Eagles will visit Jong PSV on Monday. Jong FC Utrecht will then receive number two FC Den Bosch.
