FC Den Bosch vs Go Ahead Eagles
Netherlands – Playoff
Date: Wednesday, 22nd May 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: De Vliert (‘s-Hertogenbosch).
Den Bosch exerted domination from early on in the first leg. They opened the scoring in the 18th minute, and the conceding of the away goal woke the home team up. The hosts tried desperately to level things, and they were successful in the 30th minute.
Later, in the second half, the visitors took the lead once again. Mirroring the first half, it was once more short-lived. As 70 minutes passed the score was tied at 2-2.
The home team missed a major chance to take the lead, and probably win the first leg when they wasted the penalty that was allowed. In the dying minutes, things got slightly out of control with the ref taking the yellow out thrice.

The Eagles conceded two or more goals in six of their last ten ties, and let in eight goals from their last three match-ups away from home.
