Coach Ernest Faber of FC Groningen could not believe that his team on Saturday the profit out of the hands gave against FC Utrecht. The home team went into the rest in with a 2-0 lead, but saw the guests with 2-3 win.

“We have so many opportunities that we should just finish it. Actually, that’s the only thing that does not do well. For the rest should I give my players a compliment,” said Faber on FOX Sports.

In particular, Bryan Linssen was for rest on his way with two goals. He failed the duel soon after peace, however, to decide, after which Utrecht through goals from Sebastien Haller, Giovanni Troupee and Yassin Ayoub the victory grip.

Faber noted that his team, a tap may suffer through the unnecessary defeat. “Normally you win such a match with 6-3 and everybody with a euphoric feeling to the house. We buy here now, only nothing. Everyone is entertained, except our own team.”
