Roda celebrates comeback in Kralingen, Excelsior gets grams: Draw, dont do

Excelsior gave away a 2-0 lead in the first match against Roda JC, but finally had the last word: Saturday evening, after overtime, it was won 0-2 in South Limburg. Captain Redouan El Yaakoubi got his gram afterwards.
After Tuesday‘s 2-2 in Kralingen, Roda was the moral winner. โ€œBut I want to say something and I prepared it,โ€ said El Yaakoubi talking to ESPN, after the return in Kerkrade. โ€œIf you tie, you shouldn’t celebrate it like you won. That‘s how they celebrated him with us: cheering, taking pictures, etc. But it’s a tie, I wouldn‘t… And then you get it on your lid now…โ€

But we fought like lions.โ€
