Willem gain upper hand on Sparta

Willem II defeated Sparta Rotterdam 2-1 in the first leg of their second round Eredivisie promotion/relegation play-off.

Sparta, who finished second in the Eerste Divisie, took the lead through Jaime Bruinier after 15 minutes but Willem II, who finished fifth in the second tier, secured the victory thanks to goals by Arjan Swinkels (38) and Donny De Groot (40).

Charles Kazlauskas's 52nd-minute strike saw Helmond Sport to a 1-0 win over Eindhoven, while the two sides who finished inside the Eredivisie relegation play-off zone, VVV-Venlo and De Graafschap, played out goalless draws against Cambuur Leeuwarden and FC Den Bosch.
