Ideal start to the new season in the top division of Holland by Vangelis Pavlidis!
After the 22 goals he achieved last season, the 24-year-old striker did not just start in the home match of Alkmaar with the Go Ahead Eaglesbut he was also one of the protagonists in his team’s great victory with 5-1!
Pavlidis scored for 2-0 with a nailed header from a corner and did all the work before providing the assist for 3-0, which was effectively the match winner, again leaving a very good impression. At the same time, Hatzidiakos, who played in the center of the defense, was also key and irreplaceable.
Alkmaar took the lead just in the 4th minute with Klasi, before Pavlidis made it 2-0 in the 15th minute! Van Bommel scored Alkmaar’s third goal in the 51st minute after a beautiful effort and a cross from Pavlidis, with Romens reducing (66′) and De Wit (87′) and Lahdo (90’+3′ ) to shape the final score.
On the other hand, the premiere of the champions was far from ideal. THE Feyenoord forced to play with a player less than 25′ due to Nieuwcup being sent off, which ultimately cost her as she got stuck at home 0-0 with the Fortuna Sittard of Dimitris Siovawho played the entire match.
Earlier, in an exciting game with 7 (!) goals, the Excelsior prevailed 4-3 at its headquarters Nijmegen! Agrafiotis opened the scoring for Excelsior, before Baas, Hansen made the turnaround. Videl equalized for the visitors in the 53rd minute, Ugawa gave Nijmegen the lead again, but Excelsior pulled off a crazy turnaround with Omorova’s top 3-3 in the 73rd minute and Oscar’s 3-4 in the 90th+9th minute!
