The’Hercules came out on top 3-2 over the red-and-whites. It was a historic defeat for the Lancers, who went down by two goals, reeled in their rivals in the final period with Brobbey and Chuba Akpom, but then, in the midst of recovery suffered another goal from newcomer Mats Groteberg.

The match è was played at the Galgenwaard stadium because the Voordorp sports park, where the Hercules usually perform, could not be properly lit. On the Ajax bench, on the occasion, sat second Michael Valkanis: the white-and-white coach, former Genoa footballer John van 't Schip, è in Australia for his son’s wedding.
