Man of the match: Kevin 1 goal 1 assist. Special mention: Andrea (GK), Ortega, Faycel and Dani H.

A very intense and disputed game, against a great team. We were superior in all aspects of the game and we knew how to break down the opponent to take the victory. We played a very intense first half, the game started at a great speed of play, we knew how to made danger in each attack that we generated on the wings. However, in a move against the run of play, they took the lead with a long shot ('16).

Once again we had fallen behind, but that didn’t worry us anymore because we knew we could come back. It took us almost 20 minutes to draw level through Kevin Vernooij's headed rebound after their goalkeeper had blocked Faycel's low shot in a 1v1, and for sure we deserved it. We'd generated no fewer than 10 clear chances to score. And when I say clear, very clear, we only had bad luck in some and bad executions in others.

The first half ended with a draw 1-1 on the scoreboard, however our superiority was obvious in the atmosphere. They knew it. Already in the second half the rhythm of the game dropped considerably, and this was to be expected, because it is almost impossible to hold a rhythm like the first half for 90 minutes.

We continued proposing and generating, they also had their chances, some with a free kick ball where our goalkeeper was brilliant. Near the end ('85) of the game we scored the second goal that we deserved so much, Kevin latching on to a poor backpass and debutant substitute Alex Croft tapping in for an important and hard-earned victory.
