Vitesse big loser in KNVB cup

Arnhem’s Vitesse was the big loser in Tuesday night’s second round of the KNVB football cup. The premier division team went down 4-2 to FC Eindhoven, currently bottom of the first division, in what critics said was a ‘very uninspired performance’.

Other premier division fortunes: Tilburg’s Willem II was the second premier division club to leave the contest, losing 4-3 to Haarlem on penalties. Sparta, 4-4 against Volendam at full time, made it 4-2 on penalties. Limburg club Roda JC scraped through 2-0 against amateur club Spakenburg.
