Young AZ took a big swing against Ajax’s peers on Monday evening. The Alkmaarders were too strong at their own sports complex with 5-2 and thus gave Jong Ajax their fifth defeat in six games. FC Groningen in turn did good business against Jong PSV, while FC Emmen dealt with the promises of FC Utrecht.
Young AZ – Young Ajax 5-2
Silvano Vos was missing from Young Ajax, who may be in the match selection on Thursday when the first team plays against Olympique Marseille. Gabriel Misehouy gave Jong Ajax the lead in the sixth minute with a chip over goalkeeper Hobie Verhulst: 0-1. The equalizer came within a minute. This was made by the emerging right back Denso Kasius, who scored with a diagonal shot: 1-1. Loss of the ball in Jong Ajax’s midfield led to a goal by Ernest Poku, who nicely rounded off Jong AZ’s breakout: 2-1.
It would continue to rain goals in Alkmaar all evening. Even before half time, Julian Brandes made it 2-2 with a shot from the second line. Jong AZ finally took control of the match after the break. Damienus Reverson made it 3-2 one-on-one with Jong Ajax goalkeeper Charlie Setford in minute 49. The score was 4-2 through Ricuenio Kewal, who benefited from excellent preparatory work by Jayden Addai, who had just come on. The final score went to Kees Smit, who was given a lot of time to turn in the penalty area and look for the far corner: 5-2.
FC Groningen – Young PSV 4-0
The Pride of the North actually dealt with the PSV promising team before half time. Isak Määttä scored the opening goal after eleven minutes following an assist from Johan Hove, after which Kevin van Veen scored the second Groningen goal ten minutes later. Paulos Abraham, the man who assisted Van Veen, was introduced by Luciano Valente after half an hour of play and beautifully marked the 3-0. A few minutes before half-time, Radinio Balker converted a corner from Leandro Bacuna into a goal. The central defender thus put the final score on the board in the 42nd minute: 4-0.

FC Emmen – Jong FC Utrecht 2-0
Both teams had a number of chances to score the opening goal in the opening phase of the match. Piotr Parzyszek tested Jong FC Utrecht goalkeeper Calvin Raatsie with a shot behind his supporting leg, but the latter managed to turn the bet. A few minutes before half-time, FC Emmen took the lead thanks to a goal by Michaël Heylen. The Emmen defender tried from thirty meters and shot into the far corner: 1-0. The second and last goal of the match came from Desley Ubbink. The attacking midfielder was set up by Rui Mendes: 2-0.
FC Eindhoven – ADO The Hague 1-1
After a stiff opening phase, FC Eindhoven started to get better into the match. The attacking intentions of the Eindhoven team resulted in the opening goal halfway through the first act: Evan Rottier was in the right place to knock in a cross from Mawouna Amevor. ADO leveled fifteen minutes after the 1-0. Darryl van Mieghem had a perfect free kick to Henk Veerman, who made it 1-1 with a strong header. Although both teams looked for the winning goal in the second half, it was not found.
TOP Oss – FC Dordrecht 0-1
After an unexciting opening phase, the spell was finally broken in the 38th minute of play. Ilias Sebaoui found himself in a seemingly hopeless position on the left side of the penalty area, but with a nice passing move he squeezed through the enemy defense. He then curled the ball convincingly into the far corner: 0-1. In the second act, Dordrecht came close to a second goal through Adrian Segecic and Shiloh Zand, but due to the lack of sharpness and fortune in finishing, it was no longer found.
