Dessers extends Feyenoord’s dominance in the Europa Conference League group


Cyriel Dessers scored his fourth UEFA Europa Conference 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 got Arne Slot’s men off to a good start with the opening goal in the 38th minute, thanks to an assist from Mark Diemers.

The goal took his tally to eight goals in 17 appearances for Pride of South since signing on a temporary basis from Genk in August.

After the restart, Reiss Nelson, on loan from Arsenal, 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 top spot in Group E with 14 points after six games.

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

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

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

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