Eredivisie postpones matches due to snow
The Dutch league’s winter break came a day early Sunday after a
storm dumped snow on pitches and roads across the country, forcing
the postponement of all five matches.
That meant none of the top three teams – FC Twente, PSV
Eindhoven and Ajax – played.
On Saturday, Ivory Coast striker Sekou Cisse scored the only
goal as Feyenoord beat Willem II Tilburg 1-0 to stay fourth and
close the gap with No. 3 Ajax to one point.
Cisse’s goal came just days before his country names its
squad for the African Cup of Nations.
“I have a good chance of going,” he said. “It’s great to play
for my country, but it would not be a disaster if I stay in
Also Saturday, AZ Alkmaar got its first win since Belgium
coach Dick Advocaat took over from the fired Ronald Koeman, beating
ADO the Hague 3-0 after goals by Rasmus Elm and Belgium
internationals Sebastien Pocognoli and Maarten Martens.
In Saturday’s other match, last-place RKC Waalwijk beat
Sparta Rotterdam 4-1 but remained anchored to the foot of the
league. On Friday, Heracles Almelo beat VVV Venlo 1-0.
