JUPILER LEAGUE REPORT: Week 29 – Monday 1st April


Sparta Rotterdam, celebrating their 125th birthday today, were defeated 1-0 at home against mid-table Emmen and after starting the day top of the division now find themselves fourth due to results of others.

Elson Almeida spoils Sparta’s birthday celebration

This morning Sparta Rotterdam woke up as leaders and ready to enjoy a celebration for the ages, tomorrow morning they will wake up inside a nightmare.  Wins for Helmond Sport, Volendam and MVV slip Sparta down to fourth and two points adrift from top spot.

It was Elson Almeida after 25 minutes that got Emmen’s goal as he sneaked around Donovan Slijngard as if he was not there. Helmond picked up a great 2-1 away win to ninth placed Den Bosch thanks to goals from Emrullah Güvenç and Davy Brouwers.

Volendam find themselves top of the division by goal difference after a 2-0 win away to lowly FC Eindhoven. Jack Tuyp and Michiel Kramer, like Friday night at home to Fortuna Sittard, were on the scoresheet. Finally, MVV sit in second after a 2-1 away win at Telstar with strikers from Mark Vledmate and Tom van Hyfte.
