And the standout moment arrived 17 minutes from time as the visitors opened up a 2-goal lead.

There seemed little danger on when, looking to defend his rigid high defensive line, MVV's Sjors Verdellen stabbed the ball over the halfway-line to opponent Bart van Brakel.

But on receiving the ball van Brakel only had one thing on his mind as he spotted Maastricht goalie Job Bulters standing just a few yards off his line.

Without taking a touch to control the ball, van Brakel immediately shot at goal from inside his own half and – with barely an inch of margin over the keeper's outstretched hand – his lob brilliantly ended up in the back of the net.
