KICK off: 13 May 15:30
Team news: Bryan Smeets opened the scoring in the first half and set up Lennart Thy’s 77th-minute strike, before Emanuel Emegha made sure of the result a few minutes after coming off the bench. Henk Fraser’s men are now up to eighth in the Eredivisie table and are on course to secure qualification for European football next season. However, with teams like Heracles and Fortuna Sittard breathing down their neck, De Rood-Witte Gladiatoren still have work to do in getting over the line. Thursday’s hosts have a dreadful record against the visitors, losing each of the last eight games including a 1-0 loss in January’s reverse fixture. Utrecht failed to extend their winning streak to three games as they were held to a drab 0-0 draw by Heerenveen on Saturday. Rene Hake’s men were the better side on the day, but they failed to make that dominance count on a frustrating day in front of goal for them. Nonetheless, The Domstedelingen are still on course to record their highest points tally since the 2016/17 campaign where they finished with 62 points.
