Women’s premier league denouement live on NOS.nl – FC Groningen could be relegated today
Emmen coach Dick Lukkien already knows that he will be a trainer in the first division next year. At least, today the verdict may fall on his new club FC Groningen. And although his current club is now still in the safe 15th spot, but the remaining four duels are lead, and lead heavy.
Much heavier than the direct competitors, with Volendam and Excelsior even playing each other on the last matchday.

Fireworks on the final matchday of the women’s premier league? The gap between leader Ajax and pursuer FC Twente is one point.
The Amsterdammers can take the national title on a visit to PEC Zwolle, but cannot afford a slip-up. FC Twente hosts Feyenoord, must win and then hope for a slip by Ajax.
Both matches can be followed live from 2:30 p.m. on NOS.nl.
Van Bronckhorst on mounting championship stress: ‘Does a lot to the city’
It can hardly be a coincidence. Exactly six years ago, on May 7, 2017, in the same stadium as now, the Van Donge & De Roo Stadium, Feyenoord could have become national champions by winning from Excelsior. Then things went wrong. Championship stress, according to then coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
“The mental part, because you see what it does to a city,” Van Bronckhorst said made it difficult. Feyenoord had been waiting 18 years for a title. “The deception was huge.” A week later, against Heracles Almelo (3-1 win), it more than made up for it.
PSV’s win against Excelsior this afternoon means Feyenoord cannot yet become official champions, but if they win, only a miracle can keep the Rotterdammers from the title.
Van Bronckhorst on championship stress in 2017: ‘Yes, that did something to players’
Good morning! Four matches in the premier league today. Leaders Feyenoord hoped to celebrate the championship already today, but due to PSV’s win at Sparta, the Rotterdammers still have to be patient. A win at city rival Excelsior this afternoon is the goal anyway.
At FC Groningen they are less cheerful, because in Deventer this afternoon the curtain could fall if there is no win at Go Ahead Eagles. However, we start in Emmen, where the stakes are high for both the home team and the visiting FC Twente.
