Dessers extends Feyenoord’s dominance in Europa Conference League group


Cyriel Dessers scored his fourth UEFA Europa League goal on Thursday as Feyenoord beat Maccabi Haifa 2-1.

After winning the club’s Player of the Month and Goal of the Month awards in November, Dessers continued his impressive performances at Stadion Feijenoord.

The Nigerian star gave Arne Slot’s men a good start with the opening goal in the 38th minute, thanks to an assist from Mark Diemers.

The goal brought his total to eight goals in 17 appearances for Pride of South since his temporary signing from Genk in August.

After the restart, loaned Arsenal player Reiss Nelson doubled the lead for Feyenoord in the 65th minute, which was then halved in stoppage time by Dean David in the 94th minute.

Dessers played from start to finish as the Eredivisie club sealed their first place in Group E with 14 points after six games.

Feyenoord is now on a 12-game unbeaten streak in all competitions, with the last loss dating back to October 3 against Vitesse.

Unfortunately Taiwo Awoniyi’s Union Berlin couldn’t make it through the group stage as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Slavia Prague.

Awoniyi saw 69 minutes of action but couldn’t add to his tally of four goals after eight games, including the playoffs.

Union Berlin finished third in the standings, with seven points – one point behind their Czech rivals who secured second place.
