A significant free kick will result in a major loss to Sparta against Fortuna

Sparta has got off to a bad start in the decisive week. The knockout game against Fortuna Sittard was lost 3: 0 on Saturday night, partly due to a hit. Sparta will be playing twice in the next six days.

Fortuna opened the score in the 10th minute for a free kick that can be safely called remarkable. First, Serdar Gözübüyük should have put his team up another goal after 80 minutes, but some great goalkeeping by Mats Seuntjens kept the visitors in the game.

Seuntjens then went on a free kick. The crowd was amused as Spartan of Fortuna used a few interesting tricks and dribbles to get into the penalty box. Seuntjens took advantage of a mistake on the home side’s right after 28 minutes which increased the away team’s lead to 1 – 0. It was 1 – 0 at the break.

The Sparta goal was rejected after VAR intervention

It then became a random first half, with Fortuna playing better. Former Sparta player Paul Gladon made a nice counterattack 2-0.

Bart Vriends was allowed to take it quickly by the referee, much to the dismay of the goalkeeper who wasn’t prepared. VAR pointed out to Gözübüyük that Sparta’s defender pulled Seuntjens’s shirt firmly off, after which the goal was dismissed.
