Strong Roda JC well past FC Eindhoven

Roda JC Kerkrade won 3-0 against FC Eindhoven in its own stadium. All goals came in the first half. The goals were scored by Matisse Didden, Enrique Pena Zauner and Walid Ould-Chikh.

For the first time this season, the kick-off took place on a Monday evening in the Parkstad Limburg Stadium. FC Eindhoven was the opponent. The match started quietly. In the first ten minutes, Roda JC created a shooting opportunity for Teun Bijleveld (poorly hit and wide) and a corner kick from Walid Ould-Chikh that ended up on the roof of the goal.

After fifteen minutes of play the spell was broken. A free kick, which resulted from a foul on Bijleveld, was placed on the head of Matisse Didden by Ould-Chikh. The Belgian was then able to head in from close range. The Limburgers maintained control in the remainder of the match and managed to double the score. A nice through ball from Rodney Kongolo gave Enrique Peña Zauner the one-on-one situation against Mawouna Amevor. The Venezuelan passed his opponent and calmly pushed the 2-0 past goalkeeper Jorn Brondeel.

Bas Sibum’s team remained the better team. Until half time, this led to shots from Peña Zauner (crashed) and Maximilian Schmid (over the goal) and a third goal! An error in the defense of the Brabanders was coolly punished by Ould-Chikh.

In the second half, Roda JC wanted to continue where it left off in the first half. Within five minutes the team became dangerous twice. Once Peña Zauner got through, but didn’t shoot. The second time he was released by Ould-Chikh and he also managed to score. Unfortunately, this goal was flagged by the linesman.

After an hour of play, the home team created its next chance. Ould-Chikh managed to reach substitute Saydou Bangura with a tight through ball and the striker pressed home. Unfortunately, he saw his shot turned away by Brondeel. Not much later it seemed to be 4-0, but this time no goals were scored. On a pass from another substitute, Arjen van der Heide, Peña Zauner shot wide.

With twenty minutes to play, Roda JC had to allow the opponent’s first chance. Goalkeeper Calvin Raatsie made an excellent save on the first attempt. The second attempt after a cross was shot wide by Evan Rottier. On the other hand, Roda JC also showed itself again. Ould-Chikh wanted to put the ball in the long corner, but aimed just wide.

With less than fifteen minutes left on the clock, a huge opportunity arose for Bangura. On a pass from Peña Zauner, the striker had the ball from close range to shoot in, but he hit the ball completely wrong. In the final phase, the home club continued to look for a fourth goal. On the other hand, it was Raatsie who managed to prevent a goal with a clever save on a free kick from Ozan Kökcü.

There was no further scoring in the final minutes and Bas Sibum’s team managed to win comfortably against FC Eindhoven.
