Zwolle bag big win over Excelsior

The 2018/19 Bundesliga Team of the Season

PEC Zwolle lifted themselves out of bottom place in the Eredivisie standings with a 2-0 win over Excelsior at Stadion Woudestein in Rotterdam on Saturday.

After a goalless first half, Queensy Menig put the visitors ahead just three minutes after the restart in the 48th minute, thanks to an assist from Youness Mokhtar.

The points were assured in the 88th minute when Ajax loanee Django Warmerdam doubled their lead, with New Zealand international Ryan Thomas providing the assist.

Their second win of the campaign lifts the Blauwvingers off the bottom of the Eredivisie standings, taking them up to 13th for the time being, while Excelsior are now set to slide down from their position of 10th when the rest of the Dutch top flight plays their 10th match of the season.
