WEEK 2 – Friday 9th August 2013

Roda JC got off the mark after last week’s resounding 3-0 by defending champions Ajax with a 2-0 with fellow relegation contenders SC Cambuur.

RODA JC 2-0 SC CAMBUUR

The newly promoted SC Cambuur still search for their first goal and they failed to create any decent opportunities within the ninety minutes inside the Limburg Stadion.

We had to wait until 25 minutes for the first real chance which was wasted by Krisztián Németh. The former Liverpool youth striker beat the offside trap and rounded goalkeeper Leonard Nienhuis beautifully, but his finish let him down as his effort creeped wide of the open goal.

Németh found the net on 34 minutes, a cross floated in by Mark-Jan Fledderus towards the feet of Guus Hupperts at the back post. The Cambuur defence failed to clear and the ball fell to the Hungarian to finish this time.

The break came and went and the Eredivisie new boys made a double change bringing in Mart Dijkstra and their new loan signing this week, Marcel Ritzmaier from PSV. The young Austrian helped Cambuur take control of the game and start winning the midfield battles, resulting in Roda launching long balls to find a counter attack. The boys from Leeuwarden spent the majority of the second half with the ball in their possession, but the likes of Jody Lukoki, Martijn Barto and Mohamed El Makrini were disappointing and Roda ‘keeper Filip Kurto was barely tested.

With just a minute remanining, Roda finally cemented the three points with Mitchell Donald getting on the scoresheet. Another long ball was hit and Frank Demouge jumped with Ramon Leeuwin to nod the ball into Donald’s path to make it 2-0.
