Emmen made it six games unbeaten at home with a 2-0 victory over Sparta Rotterdam.

Sparta Rotterdam started brightly with Mohamed Rayhi sending an early strike wide.

However, in the 18th minute, Jurgen Mattheij conceded a penalty and Sergio Peña made it 1-0 from the penalty spot. Eleven minutes later, Lassana Faye was penalised for a handball and Michael de Leeuw added a second with another penalty.

In the second half, the hosts lead could have been greater but both Michael Chacón and De Leeuw hit the post.

The victory puts Emmen 13th while Sparta are 11th.
