Despite having a slim 1:0 lead from the first leg, Arne Slot knew that the second leg against Roma FC in the Europa League quarterfinals wouldn't be an easy one for them. With them traveling this time rather than playing at home to the cheers of a large crowd, there was no doubt they were in for an intense 90 minutes. The end result was a 4:1 (4:2 on aggregate) loss at the Stadio Olimpico.
Prior to that, they defeated relegation-threatened Cambuur on the road 3:0 to bag another three-pointer that will see their place at the top cemented.In that game, Santiago Giménez opened the scoring in the 17th minute to give his side the lead in the first half which was later followed by Sebastian Szymański's goal in the second half and an own goal from their opponent to put the game beyond doubt.
The last time De club aan de Maas lost a match was in September of last year, when they were defeated 4:3 on the road by PSV Eindhoven. Since then, they have gone on a twenty-two match unbeaten streak, with sixteen wins and six draws and those are sets of results that have exceeded typifications of a consistent form by a mile.
They are presently in first place with 70 points, eight points ahead of Ajax Amsterdam in second place and bagging all three points here will draw them closer to the long awaited dream of being crowned champions.
Probable Starting XI
Bijlow; Pedersen, Trauner, Hancko, Lopez; Szymanski, Mieffer, Kokcu; Paixao, Gimenez, Idrissi
Utreg, on the other hand, faced a difficult challenge as they welcomed Ron Jans' men, FC Twente, to the Stadion Galgenwaard in search of another three points, which they eventually got as they rose above the occasion to claim a 1:0 victory courtesy of Sander van de Streek's goal in the 70th minute.
Prior to that, they ended a five-game winless streak in all competitions, with two draws and three losses, with a 2:1 triumph on the road against FC Groningen, thanks to goals from Anastasios Douvikas and Bas Dost.
Away from home, they have amassed 22 points from four ties, four losses, and six victories in 14 matches, but their defense has been a source of concern, as they have conceded 29 goals, something they will need to work on moving ahead.
