RKC CCambuur made the better start, but RKC took the lead on 16 minutes with their first real chance of the game. Robert Braber beat the offside trap before calmly slotting past the Cambuur keeper to make it 1-0.

RKC were dominant after their goal, but had to make two substitutions due to injury, with Romeo Castelan and Evander Sno unable to continue.

Cambuur equalised against the run of play on the 34th minute, with Michiel Hemmen heading in a corner.

Three minutes later it was 2-1 to Cambuur with Hemmen netting his second goal of the game, to put the visitors ahead at the break.

On 54 minutes RKC were awarded a penalty after Mohamed el Makrini handled in the box, and Sander Duits made no mistake from the penalty spot.

RKC had to finish the game with ten men after Damiano Schet was shown his second yellow card, but they held on for a point.

The point sees RKC remain 17th, and Cambuur stay three places above them in 14th, but only two points separate them as the battle to avoid relegation continues.
