VVV through after shoot-out success

Published Add your comment

VVV Venlo kept their Eredivisie survival hopes alive by the skin of their teeth on Sunday with a 9-8 penalty shoot-out win against ADO Den Haag in the second round of the promotion/relegation play-offs.

Carrying a 1-0 advantage from the first leg, ADO held on until the 59th minute, when Edwin Linssen struck to level the tie.

That was to prove the only goal of the afternoon and the game went to penalties, with VVV ultimately triumphing in a marathon shoot-out to put themselves within a match of protecting their top-flight status.
