THE BALL – Bruma scores and Roger Schmidt bids farewell with victory (Netherlands)

Roger Schmidt said goodbye with a victory to the adventure of PSV. The emblem of Eindhoven beat PEC Zwolle (2-1) in the last round of the Dutch championship, which marked the last game of the German coach in this club, as he prepares to travel to Lisbon and take charge of Benfica.

And in the farewell, Bruma ended up in the spotlight, especially in the first half. The Portuguese international scored the first for PSV (11′) and still saw a goal disallowed at 35′, due to an irregular position. Meanwhile, Kastaneer (16′) had already equalized for Zwolle, and it wasn’t until 73′ that Roger Schmidt breathed a sigh of relief when Ledezma (73′) secured victory for PSV, in a match where Jenson Seelt, 18 years old – former central defender, and Dennis Vos, a defender of 20 years, made their debut in the first team of Eindhoven.

Ajax, already champions, ended the season with a draw against Vitesse (2-2). Brobbey (15′) gave the Amsterdam men the lead, but a brace from Openda (52′ and 56′) put the Arnhem men in front, but a goal from Édson Álvarez (87′) prevented a more bitter farewell from Erik Ten Hag, Manchester United’s next manager.

Opponent of José Mourinho’s Roma in the Conference League final, Feyenoord lost at the reception against Twente (1-2), the ex-lion van Wolfswinkel achieving a double for the visiting team.

In total, Ajax finished with 83 points, the league title and guaranteed entry into the Champions League group stage. PSV were in second place with 81 points, and will play the third qualifying round for access to the Champions League. Feyenoord closes the podium with 71 points and will play in the Europa League play-off.
