Eredivisie wrap: Feyenoord fire in opener, Ajax held

12 August 2012 18:47

Feyenoord opened their Eredivisie campaign with a victory over FC Utrecht, while Twente and NEC also got off to winning starts.

Ronald Koeman's team, who finished second behind champions Ajax last season, edged hosts Utrecht 1-0 courtesy of a 39th-minute header from Sekou Cisse at Stadion Galgenwaard.

Utrecht created a number of opportunities inside the opening 15 minutes but failed to convert one, paying full price for their profligacy.

Ruben Shaken delivered a measured cross to Cisse and the Ivorian rose above the Utrecht defence to head the ball home and ensure Feyenoord of the ideal start to the 2012-13 campaign.

Dusan Tadic came back to haunt former club Groningen as Twente ran out 4-1 winners at De Grolsch Veste Enschede.

The Serbian midfielder joined from Groningen on a three-year deal in July and he played a leading role in their demise on Sunday, setting up two goals and scoring two of his own.

Nacer Chadli broke the deadlock in the 30th minute before Tadic doubled Twente's lead moments later.

Chadli completed his brace nine minutes into the second half, with Tadic bagging his second on 71 minutes, before Leandro Bacuna pulled a goal back for the visitors.

At Amsterdam ArenA, American striker Jozy Altidore scored twice as AZ Alkmaar drew 2-2 at Ajax.

Defender Gregory van der Wiel helped Ajax out of the blocks with a ninth-minute goal and the score would remain the same until three minutes into the second half.

Donny Gorter set up Altidore for his first goal on 48 minutes before he struck his second two minutes later.

AZ were on course for maximum points but Kolbeinn Sigthorsson beat Esteban Alvarado on 83 minutes to clinch a draw for the champions.

Elsewhere on Sunday, NEC scored two first-half goals through Melvin Platje and Pavel Cmovs to record a comfortable 2-0 win at Heerenveen, while Vitesse and ADO Den Haag played out a 2-2 draw.
