Taylor Booth’s assist was not enough to keep Utrecht from falling against a far superior Ajax side, Kik Pierie’s first goal for Excelsior ensured that they are free from any relegation danger, while Ricardo Pepi and Groningen allowed six goals for the third time this season.
Ricardo Pepi has expressed his desire to not return to German Bundesliga side FC Augsburg, but according to the team’s managing director of sport Stefan Reuter, no decision has been made on the future of the forward.
Ricardo Pepi’s impressive strike for Groningen was for naught as they lost yet again, while Taylor Booth and Utrecht had their dominant performance ruined by three disallowed goals.

Taylor Booth put on another man of the match performance for Utrecht overshadowing Ricardo Pepi’s strong performance for Groningen, while Kik Pierie showed his utility for Jong Ajax as a left back in their win over Dordrecht.
Richard Ledezma’s first start for PSV’s first team since 2020 ended quickly while Taylor Booth couldn’t help Utrecht get their wheels turning against Cambuur Leeuwarden.
