This is still at stake in the last Eredivisie round | NOW

Published

on

The champion, the number four and the first relegated are known, but in the last Eredivisie round, the last play-off ticket for European football is allocated and the decisions fall at the bottom. An overview of the situation.

Five teams in the race for play-offs

The battle for the last tickets for the European football play-offs is undiminished exciting. NEC took eighth place in the penultimate round, but there are still several hijackers on the coast. In addition to the Frisians, Go Ahead Eagles, FC Groningen and SC Cambuur can still get a place in the play-offs.

With Heerenveen-Go Ahead Eagles and FC Groningen-SC Cambuur there are two duels where direct competitors face each other. NEC has the best position on paper with a home match against low flyer Fortuna Sittard, but the Limburgers still need points to prevent any direct relegation or post-competition for self-preservation.

The number eight in the Eredivisie will compete with AZ, Vitesse and FC Utrecht for a ticket for the second preliminary round of the Conference League. FC Twente qualified directly for the third preliminary round of the European club tournament on Wednesday by securing fourth place, at the expense of AZ.

Standings in battle for eighth place

  • 8. NEC 33-38 (-13)
  • 9. SC Heerenveen 33-38 (-15)
  • 10. Go Ahead Eagles 33-36 (-12)
  • 11. FC Groningen 33-36 (-13)
  • 12. SC Cambuur 33-36 (-18)

NEC has the ticket for the play-offs completely in their own hands.

Blood-curdling relegation battle

Last Wednesday, the curtain fell for PEC Zwolle, but the battle at the bottom is far from settled. Willem II is virtually relegated as number seventeen and Fortuna Sittard is heading for the post-competition, while Sparta Rotterdam and even Heracles Almelo are not yet safe.

The last two teams will play against each other in the final round. It could be a bitter end to the season, especially for Heracles; the club already expressed the necessary ambitions for next season with the current assistant to Josep Guardiola as the new trainer, but in a defeat against Sparta and a victory by Fortuna at NEC, Heracles has been sentenced to the post-season.

Willem II, still very close to unofficial relegation on Wednesday, can crawl through the eye of the needle. The Tilburgers play at home against FC Utrecht, which has already been played out, and if they have favorable results on the other fields, they can not only prevent relegation, but even directly protect their lives. On the other hand: if Sparta and Fortuna win, Willem II is even relegated with a victory.

Relegation battle

  • 14. Heracles Almelo 33-34 (-14)
  • 15. Sparta Rotterdam 33-32 (-20)
  • 16. Fortuna Sittard 33-32 (-32)
  • 17. William II 33-30 (-28)
  • 18. PEC Zwolle 33-27 (-25)

Heracles Almelo seemed safe for a long time, but now has to fear a place in the postseason.
