After fifteen minutes, Sébastien Haller opened the score nicely with his eighth goal of this premier division season. Acrobatically, he thrust his right leg into the air and with the tip of his foot he cashed in on the cross of Dusan Tadic, who gave his 21st assist (in all competitions).
The captain, who had missed a penalty kick against Roma with a 1-0 lead, then thought to add another assist to that total, but Davy Klaassen was offside and so his goal was rejected.
RKC hits the bar
The first half saw little spectacle and even after the break the fire was hard to find for a long time. But because it was 0-1, the home team kept on lurking and hoping for that one chance. It arrived more than fifteen minutes before time.
Cyril Ngonge launched a well-shot free kick from twenty meters, but the ball, like RKC’s naughty dream, which is not yet safe, hit the crossbar.
Before that, Ten Hag had changed a few players despite the minimal margin with a view to the return in the Europa League. Mohammed Kudus came for Klaassen, David Neres for Antony and Sean Klaiber replaced the injured Devyne Rensch, who has been suspended against Roma.
