Danilo won the duel of the Eredivisie’s top scorers as FC Twente defeated VVV Venlo 2-1.

Danilo went into the game on 10 goals, the same number as VVV-Venlo striker Georgios Giakoumakis, who returned after missing the 4-1 cup victory over Almere City.

FC Twente dominated from the start and they netted early on but Danilo’s goal was disallowed for a foul in the build-up by Vaclav Cerny. In the 27th minute, it was 1-0 with Danilo getting his goal after a pass from Cerny.

Luka Ilić hit the bar for Twente before the break, while Queensy Menig saw an effort well-saved.

In the 63rd minute, Ilic did make it 2-0 after Twente pressured Christian Kum into an error.

VVV pulled one back as Evert Linthorst headed in a free-kick from close range. In the last minute, Giakoumakis could have equalised but after a solo run he put the ball just wide.

Twente are sixth in the table, while VVV are down in 15th.
