Heracles continued to dominate proceedings after the goal, but had to wait until the 53rd minute to add another with Thomas Bruns netting from close range after Brahim Darri’s initial shot was parried.

NEC were reduced to ten men moments after the second goal with Marcel Appiah seeing a straight red for a wild challenge, and with the extra man Heracles added a third before the end, with Wout Weghorst finishing calmly after being played through on goal.
