The earlier kick off saw Twente prove too strong for Eerste Divisie side Achilles’29 with Luc Castaignos netting a double.

Twente were ahead on 11 minutes when Youness Mokhtar found the top corner with a free kick and three minutes later Luc Castaignos doubled the lead with a fine strike from a tight angle.

In the second half Castaignos volleyed home Hakim Ziyech’s cross to make it 3-0, before the home side netted a consolation goal when Thijs Hendriks capitalised on a short backpass to net past debutante Sonny Stevens.
