LEAGUE TABLE after Matchday 13! AZ and Feyenoord sneak away with very important wins, while Twente comfortably beat Utrecht. Willem has climbed to its highest spot in recent memory, they're now 6th! Telstar escape the relegation zone for the first time this season behind its second win of the campaign. Den Haag continues to be perfect through 13, with no signs of letting up, and the gap between first and second widened in this matchday--they now lead by an incredible 11 points! It's tough luck for Zwolle and Sparta this season it would appear. Zwolle is now 17th, on just 8 points, but their record may indicate their true quality. They've won only one game, but having 7 losses and a -7 goal differential shows there may be light at the end of this tunnel. Similarly, Sparta continues to lose tight matches. Despite being 9th place and just 6-2-5, the Rotterdam side has a +10 goal differential, which is third-best in the league. Which club's fortune will shift sooner? Looking ahead, our top matches in Matchday 14 feature AZ against RKC, Twente against Vitesse, Feyenoord against Willem, and Sparta against Utrecht. Surely set to be a great matchday! Keep an eye on Zwolle/Telstar and Volendam/Heerenveen at the bottom of the table.
